NEWS AND UPDATES
Congratulations to the following who
completed titles in 2012!
City finished her Grand Championship when awarded her fifth grand champion
major, at the Westchester Kennel Club show, under breeder judge Larry Berg,
handled by 16 year old Rachel Ertle (who was filling in for Jessica Plourde)!
Rachel was busy in another ring at the time of the photograph, so many thanks to
my daughter Danielle for stepping in to take the photo (Danielle had
herself handled a beautiful Copper Creek boy named Mongo (out of Ripley x
Vola) to WD/BOW that same day).
CH SZIZLIN'S BRISBANE AIN'T SHE
ENDEAR'N (Brisbane, out of Dezso x Manda) won her third major and finished her
championship under Judge Jay Richardson at the Springfield Circuit in
August. Brisbane is one of those vizslas who really does not like the show
ring - when taking the finishing picture, the judge noted that she really
was not doing much to help herself in the stack, but her movement was
undeniable, and she finished in style with a 3 point major, WB/BOW with a
BOS over special. Many thanks to Richard Bennington-Grant for all his work
with Brisbane! and to my daughter Danielle & junior handler Caitlin for putting the finishing points
on her while Richard was in Canada.
CH SZIZLIN'S THEY CALL ME CITORI (Citori,
out of JB x Ptorrie) won her fourth major and finished her
championship under Judge Terry Stacy at the CVVC Supported Entry at the
Longshore Southport Kennel Club show in June. Beautifully Presented by
Pictured above going BOB under Judge
Pat Trotter a few weeks later.
CH SZIZLIN AUTUMN'S JOY KAYA HAPPY TAILS JH (Kaya, out of
Ivan x Ruffian) finished her
championship on March 18, 2012 under Judge Ann Yuhasz - winning three more majors at the
Celtic Cluster in PA. Kaya is owned by
Alice Chaikin and presented beautifully by Michelle Porfido. Kaya went on to
earn her JH title shortly thereafter and won Best of Breed and Group 2 at the
CVVC Supported Entry at the Longshore Southport Kennel Club show in June under
Judge Terry Stacy.
