Violet, along with her sister Dolly, is a foundation bitch for Blossomhil’s Bassets.  Violet began her show career at six months and finished in a relatively short time.  From the first day in the ring, Violet loved to show.  In one of her first shows, she won BOS, from the classes to her father CH. Topsfield-Cloverhil Buggy Bumpers over other specials.   Her mom, Blossom, was rooting her on from the sidelines. 

Violet began her specials career in December of 2009 with handler Mike Stone. From the moment she entered the ring, she made her presence known.  She retired at Westminster in Feb of 2011.
Violet’s breed type and sound movement made her America’s number one Basset Hound All-Breed. In 2010, she won the breed at both Westminster and at the 2010 Basset Hound Club of America National Specialty.
 
Violet and her littermate Dolly each won the Basset Hound Club of America Nationals, respectively, in 2010 and in 2012.  To my knowledge, no other littermates have accomplished this in club history.   ​Violet has a beautiful head, elegant neck, and correct front.  She has lovely reach and drive and smooth long ribs.  She is an ambassador for the breed.
 
Violet was bred to GCH Topsfield Maredge Earl Grey and produced 5 puppies in March of 2007.  Her daughter MBIS. MBISS. GCHG. Blossomhil's Topsfield Sanchu A little Princess & CH. Blossomhil's Topsfield Sanchu Oliver have made her proud.
