Lovely walk at Fernhill
The creation of this blog was inspired & would not be possible without the steadfast encouragement of my husband Len and my friends Barbara Heidenreich and Richard Hawkins. Barb & Richard are deerhound breeders with 40 years experience & a wealth of knowledge they are happy to share. Barb & Richard’s kennel is Fernhill, they may be contacted at their website Fernhill.com. If you would like a glimpse into the lives and deerhound loves of this remarkable place you will not want to miss visiting their website. The publication “Your Scottish Deerhound Primer” (Primer) written by Barbara Heidenreich is an invaluable source of information for new, prospective and even experienced deerhound owners. The Primer will be used here with the kind permission of B. Heidenreich and may be ordered for a nominal fee from the Fernhill website.
I could not conceive of writing this blog without also referring you to the venerable Scottish Deerhound organizations:
The Scottish Deerhound Club of America -http://www.deerhound.org/index.shtml
Deerhound L discussion list with archives available to members covering wide array of topics from conformation eventing to health and social issues pertaining to deerhounds – Invaluable tool for deerhound owners. – http://www.deerhound.org/resource.shtml#dhl
I will draw extensively from the experience & wisdom of those that came before me and as time allows will post links to breeders and articles on subjects relating to deerhounds and dogs in general.
