Current American Foxhound show dogs of Deluxe ownership or co-ownership.

Ch Deluxe Splash
June 14, 1999 - May 20, 2011

It is with deepest sadness that Ron and I write to tell you of the passing of our dear American foxhound, Splash. It is so hard to believe that just yesterday he was running around here in Kearney and by the time we got him to Dr. Becker this afternoon he was so weak that he could barely stand and was gasping for breath. An x-ray showed multiple tumors in his lungs and his condition was deteriorating rapidly. While it is so painful to say goodbye, we are comforted that Splash had a happy life and suffered for a very short time.

Splash has been a special part of our lives and provided us with so many wonderful memories. Who would have imagined that a dog that never "set paw" into an AKC show ring until the ripe old age of 7 years plus would not only finish his championship but go on to be first Award of Merit and Select Dog at the 2010 American Foxhound Club national specialty? We are so grateful to Polly Smith for this great memory!

What we will remember most is Splash glued to his favorite spot on the couch in the TV room fighting for position with the other senior citizen, Lindsay Ann Lux, or hanging out in the backyard with his Beagle buddy, Lightning B. Lux. Splash was mostly lounging in the grass and probably wondering just what Lightning was barking about? He was pals with all the Beagles except Spooner, but that's another story...

Splash will be greatly missed by all of us at Deluxe, human and canine. It is consolation to know that he is with Quincy B. Foxhound and Victoria Lee and all his foxhound friends as well as the Dalmatians, Archie, Gucci, Ike and Courtney Marie. One of my greatest regrets is that Splash never had a chance to meet the newest Deluxe foxhound, Spencer, who will be arriving next week from Lisa and Harry. I'm sure that the "old guy" could have taught the newcomer a thing or two.

We are very, very grateful that Splash was part of our lives. He will never be forgotten and his memory will bring us happiness always.


Ch Kiarry & Deluxe Adam's Rib

Amanda finished her championship in grand style going Winners Bitch at the 2010 American Foxhound Club national specialty with her fourth major. This win was made even more special by the fact that the judge was respected American foxhound breeder Mrs. Polly D. Smith plus the 2010 nationals were held in conjunction with the legendary Morris and Essex Kennel Club show, which is held only once every five years. Special thanks to Amanda's breeders, Lisa and Harry Miller and Connie Petrick for this lovely girl!

Ch Kiarry's Uptown Girl

We are pleased and honored that Lisa and Harry Miller have given us the honor of co-owning this beautiful bitch, Ch Kiarry's Uptown Girl, "Brooke". Brooke recently won Best of Breed at the Potomac Hound Club specialty and is selectively specialed by Julie and Lisa while awaiting motherhood in the future.

These are the past American Foxhound show dogs of Deluxe ownership or co-ownership.

Ch Deluxe Splash
June 14, 1999 - May 20, 2011

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? At the age of eight, and in just three months, Splash finished his championship -- impressing judges with his correct type, outstanding movement and friendly, happy temperament. Ch Deluxe Splash had a great time at the 2010 AFC National Specialty going first Award of Merit and Select Dog - from the Veteran's Class! Splash, piloted in the breed ring by Ron, showed that at 11 plus years of age, he can still play with the young kids - and win!
CH Cedar Creek Golden Girl Deluxe
"Victoria Lee"
March 19, 1998 to August 29, 2010

It is with the deepest sadness that we tell you of the passing of our wonderful American foxhound, Victoria Lee. Not only was Victoria a multiple group winner and placer in the show ring, she was a cherished part of our family and our lives. We have recalled so many wonderful memories in the past few days as we knew that the end was near. Fortunately, Victoria was ill for a very short time and it is consolation to know that she lived and enjoyed 12 good years. She is loved and will be greatly missed by everyone at Deluxe especially her best pal, Splash, who stayed close by and watched over her during her last days.
We are so very grateful for having had the privilege of such a wonderful American foxhound in our lives.

Victoria is Best Veteran at the Foxhound National Specialty!
