2010 was another banner year for Oxota hounds! Gin is ranked #5 BCOA NOFCA, #7 NOTRA (t),

Ren is #6 BCOA NOFCA & #9 NOFCA (breed), and Tigress is #4 ASFA Region 3!

Both Ren and Gin qualified for the Grand Course again this year.

Our hounds earned several titles (CM, 3 CGC’s, MC, CH/DC/VLAA), and we whelped our first litter.
