Arrival Story:
After doing some research on English Foxhounds and Harriers and looking for a reputable breeder, I started shopping around for a male puppy. I had better luck looking for a good Harrier puppy. Via the Internet, I selected Kingsbury Harriers in Southern California run by John and Donna Smiley-Auborn who breed their hounds for show and field and are an organized hunt recognized by the National Beagle Club.

Ace's sire came from Vale of Lune Harriers in the Lake District of England and his dam from Easton Harriers in S.E. England. He really comes from a family line of hunting hounds. Ace has two other brother littermates and five sisters.

Veterinary Surgery

I was taken to the vet's today to get a benign, fatty tumor (lipoma - as in lipids or fats) surgically removed from under my left foreleg. It's best to catch these things early before they get any bigger. Now I feel all groggy and ill from the anesthesia and the brachial tube put inside my mouth and down my throat. So I don't feel like eating anything right now (Hopefully I'll start eating again by next weekend.) I also got my teeth/gums cleaned and polished, so my mouth feels rather sore inside. I also got some prescription medicine from the vet that I have to take to help get rid of the pain and make me feel better.


Sandy Creek Covered Bridge and Washington S.P. in Missouri

Yesterday my Mom drove me down to Washington State Park in Missouri. The trail that we hiked turned out to be harder than Mom thought. It was like 1,000 steps up steep inclines that the Civilain Conservation Corps built back in the 1930s. The C.C.C. also built a scenic overlook shelter at a midway point on the trail for people to stop and rest after climbing all those steps uphill. In the end we ended up at a picnic shelter and couldn't figure out where the rest of the trail finishes. So we went down to the Big River where there were other people swimming and playing in the water (mostly teens). Mom got me into the water and I did a little swimming/wading and then after a while decided I had enough; I'm still somewhat afraid to go in. Definitely not one of the best Missouri State Parks.

We then made a brief stopover at the Sandy Creek Covered Bridge in Jefferson County, Mo. It's one of the last few remaining covered bridges in Missouri and it provided a transportation link between St. Louis and Hillsboro. We met another woman by Sandy Creek under the bridge with her two very small children. I also did a little exploring and wading around in the water here, but I started feeling hot and tired. It was a long drive back home to bed.

Mom dropped me off at Kennelwood Suites in Ballwin, Mo. for my fifth B-Day and went off to Va. to see other hounds (probably friendlier, more outgoing ones). I really enjoyed myself at Kennelwood throughout the rest of May. I did quite a lot of exploring and running around (sniffing the ground all the way) and inspected all the new, exciting bones and toys. Also, I drank some water and relaxed in the shade whenever it started getting too warm in the afternoon. I really loved playing with my "busy bones" and ate all sorts of yummy treats. After running and playing with other dogs, I took a few leisurely naps. Every night I looked at whatever was on Animal Planet, ate a "cookie", and went to bed. I also cuddled with the Kennelwood staff so they could pet me and rub my belly. Some people think that's cute of me!

During the first week of June, Mom took me to a couple of new places in St. Charles for some "doggie" ice cream: mint carob chip and liver. Yum!!
