Ch. & Working Trial Champion Brumbies Dulcimer 6 CC's
Sire:Barilla Geraint
Dam: Weatheroak Black Bess

Dulcimer was bred by David and Joy Kingsberry in 1991, and Dulcimer became the only bitch to have ever been a dual champion. Only three dog hounds have ever attained this prestigious title.
She gained her show title in 1993 with the bitch challenge certificate and Best of Breed at Crufts.
She also was awarded Best in show at the Bloodhound Club Championship show in 1994
At Working Trials she was always handled by her greatest fan, Bill Burley, even though he was well into his 70's.
She won her way out of Novice , Junior and Intermediate and then in the Spring of 1996 won both her Working Trials certificates at the Bloodhound Club and ABB trials. My thanks will always go to Nick Sutcliffe and Tim Unwin for those two fantastic certificates.
Two of her children reached the Senior Stake, Ch. Marksbury Quonian Sanft owned by Nick Sutcliffe who also won one working trial certificate and Marksbury Quizzical who had a second and third in Senior.
