This year when Laura Pitts headed to the Jingle All The Way 5K in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 10, she brought along a partner, the retired foxhound Potomac Jacket, who trotted ahead of her in holiday attire.
Pitts, the daughter of retired Potomac Hunt (Md.) huntsman Larry Pitts, serves as an honorary whipper-in for Potomac, and always had a soft spot for Jacket. She showed him to his American foxhound championship and foxhound reserve grand championship at the 2009 Virginia Hound Show. He is by Potomac Jefferson ’05 and out of Potomac Jacquard ’02.
