Violet in the field
Violet qualified at the 2023 Master Amateur National Invitational Hunt Test for the third time,
earning her MAH and HTHF titles

As a young puppy, Violet was a virtual twin to our Zoey, both in looks and in personality. She went to live in California with Bruce Hayes, a noted hunt test competitor who trains with our other 'California connection', Fern Hill Ryman MH and his owner. When it came time to for Bruce to get a new puppy, he decided that he wanted one 'just like Ryman'. We are happy to report that Violet is doing very well for him. She now lives with her littermate brother Chi as well, who joined Bruce's pack at age 9 months. She passed four for four Junior Hunter tests and titled at 9.5 months -- the youngest dog in all the tests. Violet earned her Senior Hunter title on November 11, 2018, at not quite two years old, becoming Panda's fourth qualifying get and completing Panda's Outstanding Dam title. Violet then went on to pass 4 Master Hunter tests before age 3 in Fall of 2019, and finished up her title in the early spring of 2020. In April 2023, she passed her third Master Amateur National Invitational Hunt Test in Giddings, Texas, and currently has a total of 43 Master passes. She has now earned the AKC title Master Amateur Hunter and has entered the GRCA Hunt Test Hall of Fame. We are so very proud of this girl and wish her and Bruce continued success!
