Foxhound. VWH Darius. This portrait was commissioned by his puppy walker. The two pencil remarques depict him on the flags at Peterborough and at walk playing with his litter brother.
At Peterborough the morning judging of the dog hounds culminated with the championship won by VWH Darius ’04. Darius was bred by Martin Scott, an expert on hound breeding earning him the moniker ‘Studbook Scottie’, who backs this up; ‘he has won a lot,’ he says, ‘but the vital thing is that he’s a good hunter.’ It is 80 years since a VWH hound won a Peterborough championship and much cause for celebration.
