Taiga had a great weekend showing at Enumclaw and enjoying social time with family and friends.
Day 1, RSDA Group 1 Specialty – Select Bitch under breeder judge Linda Kelly. Pending AKC approval this placement completes Taiga’s Bronze with limited showing in the US.
Day 2, PSVC Specialty – Best of Breed under breeder judge Alessandra Folz Stymiest!!! What an exciting and memorable win. Taiga was strutting her stuff Friday and I managed to hold it together and not let her down during the multiple run-offs for final placements.
Day 3 & 4, OKC – BOB and BOS under judges Charlotte McGowan and George Marquis, respectively.
Congratulations to all the other exhibitors on their placements. It is such a pleasure to be in the ring with you all and your gorgeous Vizslas.
Thank you to the clubs for putting on such a great event, in particular the Puget Sound Vizsla Club.

Willow completed her FDJ title this weekend in style! Thank you to the Vancouver Island Pointing Dog Club for another great event.
Last year was quite the year for Taiga! Between Easter and Labour Day she showed her little heart out winning two BIS, one RBIS, nine Group 1st, eleven Group 2nd, four Group 3rd and eight Group 4th placements. Additionally, she jetted down to San Diego taking BOS at VCA Nationals. Taiga also managed her biggest accomplishment to-date, becoming a mama to 6 beautiful pups on November 11.
While the show season ended early for her, Taiga still managed to achieve our set goal of finishing in first place for Vizslas (Smooth) in Canada in 2017. Words can not describe how much I love this girl and how grateful I am to have her in my life.
Thank you to all of you that have, and continue to, support me on this journey. I love each and every one of you and couldn’t do it without you.
After a 6 year hiatus from the obedience ring, we’re pleased to announce that Petal finished her CD title this past weekend at the Lower Mainland Dog Fanciers’ Show. Petal also earned a High in Trial at the event. Petal also participated in Rally Intermediate, earning two legs and another High in Trial. She is such a joy to handle and is enjoying getting back in the ring!
After very limited showing in Canada (10 shows), we are so pleased to announce that Taiga is now the number 1 Vizsla in Canada! So proud of this beautiful girl and endless thank you’s to all who have supported us!!!
Petal and Juno survived the heat wave at Enumclaw, WA, this past weekend to compete in Barn Hunt! Both girls passed their Barn Hunt Novice legs, earning new “BATN” titles. On Sunday, Juno was High in Trial for her 3rd Novice Leg and Petal was High in Trial for her first Intermediate Leg! These girls love to hunt and have so much fun with this sport. Unfortunately we had to hit the road for home before getting any photos of the girls and collecting all their new ribbons.
