We at Woebgon Bassets got off to a really great start in the AKC conformation show ring in 2014. Again the first show weekend in Indio was a good one for us. Our success has continued. Due to our current litter being so young our showing this summer will be very limited. We may not start back showing until fall.


We hope to see you at a dog show.

“Heidi”

Palm Springs Kennel Club, January 5, 2014

Judge - Ms. Rosemary N. Green from Australia

Pam took on Heidi as a project from our last litter. She had never shown a basset for a Championship. The pair accomplished that in September and went on to work on the Grand Championship. Heidi's first show was at the Palm Springs/Indio Shows in 2013 and she finished her Grand Championship a year later. Heidi finished the Grand Championship with 7 majors and 7 shows where she defeated other Champions. We at Woebgon Bassets are very proud of both of them.

At the Orange Empire Dog Club Show Heidi was Select Bitch on 1/27/14 under Judge Dr. E. Carolyn Hensley. Dr, Hensley made it clear at the beginning of judging that she was looking for bassets that could go out and hunt for rabbits. We did not take a picture of this win.

Winners Dog & Best of Winners

2 Points

Tradewind’s Caicos

At the Orange Empire Dog Club Show Caicos was Winners Dog and Best of Winners on 1/27/14 under Judge Dr. E. Carolyn Hensley. Dr. Hensley made it clear at the beginning of judging that she was looking for bassets that could go out and hunt for rabbits.


We at Woebgon Bassets are very honored to win under judges who make it clear that they are looking for basset hounds that are “fit for purpose” that they could envision out in the field hinting for rabbits. Over the years we seem to have done very well under judges like Dr. Hensley.
