Kona, On The Move!

Kona entered the GMSPBHC Basset Hound Specialty show this past June 2008 in Jordan MN, where he won open class for dogs (males), and also won Winner's Dog (best male). He earned two points at this specialty. Below are some excellent photos, courtesy of our friends Ann and Jay Wendt (photographer), who are also Basset Hound owners and lovers.

Kona also earned one point at the St. Croix Valley Kennel Club dog show last weekend, in Lake Elmo, MN. Kona now has 11 points, and needs a major win and a total of 4 points, towards championship status.
