JDK'S Herschel

(April 1988 - April 1999)

 Herschel was the first basset hound we owned.  He was our very special pet.  Herschel loved toys, birthday parties, company and his daily walks.  He was the trainer for many of our show puppies as they learned to walk on a lead.  



  Ch. Bugle Bay's Rosemary 

(May 1989 - July 1993)

Rosemary was our first AKC Champion.  She was a very sweet dog with a lot of energy.  She was not with us long, but we loved her and enjoyed her so much.

Rest Well, Old Friend.  Barkly was out of our first litter at Morningwood.  He went out as a Special at the age of six.  In that one year he won 68 Best of Breeds and 32 Group Placements.  He always showed his heart out and he had unmistakable style and grace.  Barkly retired to New Mexico where he spent the remainder of his life with his loving owner, Joe Smith.  We will always remember him as a dog with great courage and resilience.  He loved the show ring.  Barkly was handled by Kathy French.
