For the second year in a row, the National Lacy Dog Association was a Bonus Sponsor for the TDHA Hunt For The Hungry. The hunt was a huge success, bringing in 29,176 pounds of meat to feed needy Texans. We also had four NLDA members hunt with their Lacys as part of Team Pork Stars. Mike and Kas Brooks, DJ Middleton and Steve Williams caught an impressive 813 pounds of pork, earning them tenth place out of 68 teams.
The NLDA also took an active role in the Lone Star Hunting & Working Dog Expo. Our booth served as place for members to met while giving us the opportunity to educate the public on Lacy Dogs. Two members were also asked to give presentations in their area of expertise. President Jimmy Brooks put on a trapping demonstrations while Director Betty Leek held an informative seminar on raw feeding.
Thank you to all who supported these events. We hope to see everyone next year in Hallettsville for the 2011 Lone Star Expo and Hunt for the Hungry!

The official weigh-in for the 2009 Hunt for the Hungry was held at the Wild Board Expo in Halletsville. Since we were co-sponsoring the charity hunt, we decided to set up a booth the promote working Lacys. President Jimmy Brooks, Vice President Robby Leek, Secretary Shannon Collier and Director Betty Leek did a fantastic job of setting things up and talking to all our visitors. And Lucy Lou Leek served as our official mascot, greeting everyone who stopped by. We were able to connect with people new to the breed as well as Lacy owners interested in the association. Thank you for your support!
The National Lacy Dog Association is teaming up with the Texas Dog Hunters Association and Hunters’ Harvest to sponsor the 2009 Hunt for the Hungry!
Now in its fourth year, the Hunt for the Hungry is the largest charity hunt in the United States. In 2008, over 20,000 pounds of pork was collected to feed hungry families across Texas. It is also the richest hog dog tournament in Texas. The winning team will walk away with over $3,000 and numerous prizes. But the biggest reward is knowing you and your dogs helped fill the stomachs of very needy families.
In addition to sponsoring the Heaviest Boar Bonus, the NLDA will do everything we can to make sure Lacys are well represented in this contest. Teams are comprised of four people and their dogs hunting from Feb. 27 through March 1. The main event is judged on each team’s five heaviest hogs. It will take skill as well as stamina to excel in this tournament, and we know Lacy hog dogs are up to the challenge.
To learn more about the rules and how to enter, please visit the Meetings & Events section at the NLDA forums. We hope you and your Lacys can join us in supporting this great cause!
