We’re finally back from traveling for the Vizsla Nationals in California and coming back for less than a week and heading right back out to California to breed Lali. We’re behind on application review and even our email and will be trying to catch up this week. Whew!

Naughty N’ Nice

Sadie and Havoc’s Naughty N’ Nice litter who were born December 17th, are currently 5 weeks old! They have been moved from the whelping box to a more permanent set of ex-pen apartments in our dining room. We’re trying to get them to “potty” in wood shavings in a plastic bin. It’s um, hit or miss as they say. They are rough housing, sleeping a lot, eating a lot, and have found out that laps are the best place to be (so vizsla). They are listening to the sweet sounds of desensitizing music (sirens, crying, etc) and seem pretty nonplussed by that and the noises from the kitchen next door. They are still weighed twice daily, given lots of cuddles and belly raspberries, and get their “teefies” checked regularly for showring practice. We still have 2 spots left on our waiting list for this litter.

Wags N’ Brags

New Grand Champion! So it turns out that Rory, GCH LaTierra’s Rory O’Rourke from the Sadie X Tosci litter looks like he will be doing very well for 2014. He finished his Grand Championship at the Greater Fredericksburg Kennel Club on Friday, January 10th, 2014. It was a 4 point major. Rory defeated the #5 dog in the country for 2013. Go Rory Go!

Congrats to Charlie, CH LaTierra’s Charlemagne, who won Best of Breed at Pasco Florida Kennel Club this past Sunday, Jan 19th 2014. 5 points towards his Grand Championship! Charlie went select the other days with 8 points towards his GCH this weekend.

Congrats to Rory who went select 3 days at the Annapolis Kennel Club show, and Best of Opposite on Sunday this weekend.

Congrats to Charlie!

Lali Portrait by Pam

Congrats to Lali ‘GCH Artisan’s Pink Lollapalooza’ for winning an Award of Merit at the Vizsla Club of America’s National Specialty event in Minnesota last week. We’re so proud of our girl.

And, Lali’s brother and Sadie’s littermate Vlad ‘GCH Artisan’s Vladimir the Imperial’ also got an Award of Merit. He was proud papa to a lot of beautiful pups in the show.

Sadie’s son Charlie, LaTierra’s Charlemagne AKA Corolus Magnus, is starting to look like his back end is connected to his front end, and won his American Bred class in the same show. We’re looking forward to more wins with our goofy and beautiful boy.

At the VCA specialty, we also did some potential husband shopping for Sadie and Lali. Check back in the late summer for news of our breeding decisions and our planned Fall 2013 Lali litter. We know we’ll get some pretty puppies out of our showgirl.

And sad news, we have lost our sweet 17-year-old vizsla Wild West Abby. She had a lovely long life and is now over the rainbow bridge.
