In 2000 Rigby was #5 bloodhound. In 2001 she was #6 bloodhound and also #1 bloodhound bitch in breed points. In 2002... with VERY limited showing, in "Dog News" she ranked #7 bloodhound overall and #1 bitch. We are VERY proud of her.

Here are some of Rigby's "win shots". Starting as a puppy.

September 5, 1999. RWB at the American Bloodhound Club's National Specialty in Olympia, WA. Under breeder/judge Mrs. Jackie Sinkinson.


November 13, 1999.. In Salisbury, MD, it was a supported entry.. meaning there was a bunch of bloodhounds there and they had sweepstakes for boys & girls under 2 years old. So.. I was Grand Sweeps Winner!! The judge was Mr. Diz Cozart.


April 15, 2000 in Harrisburg, PA. The American Bloodhound Club's Eastern Regional Specialty. My mom's knee is still hurting (since a trailing accident on New Year's Day (let's not discuss that, teehee)) so my Aunt Lisa took me in the ring. I was Grand Sweeps Winner!!
