Bruce Hayes with his two 9-month old Fern Hill puppies: Violet JH on the left, Chi on the right.
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 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 hear reports that Violet is
doing very well in her early training. She passed four for four Junior Hunter tests and titled at 9.5 months -- the youngest dog in all the tests.
She now lives with her littermate brother Chi as well, who joined Bruce's pack at age 9 months. We are looking forward
to hearing more news about this girl (and her brother) as they grow up!
