The weekend of the 23rd & 24th was a busy one. Karma earns a 3-point major
in Rapid City, again with her dad Marc. These two are becoming quite the
team. Meanwhile in NE, brother Zeke and dad Pat earn a SH leg. It's amazing
to think these two are just 15 months old!
Not to be outdone while in Rapid City, our friend Jenny put two final Rally Novice
legs on Indy. It's nice that Marc now has an RN living with him.
Congratulations to Karma and handler Marc who put her last JH leg on her at
the Vizsla Club of Colorado's first AKC event. We are so proud of you two!
We finished out September in Oconmowoc, Wi for the Vizsla Club of America's
50th Anniversary of the breed's acceptance in AKC. Also, out National non-field
events. I am so very proud of everyone that showed! We got to see old friends
and make new friends and look forward to next year. Thank you to everyone
that made this a very enjoyable Nationals. Star was able to bring home a green
qualifying ribbon in Rally Novice for her first leg!

Nice job Boys, Handlers and Families!
We anxiously await what the month brings!
May came to a happy close with Star whelping 8 puppies on May 30. 4 Boys
and 4 girls.
We ended May in St. Peter for the TCVC Specialty and Key City all-breed
shows. Our young and beautiful Karma came for a visit from Denver with her
owners Jenny & Marc and we loved welcoming them to the family. Also there
were Boca & Bosco and Brew celebrating his 1st birthday with us.
The Specialty could not have ended any better. We are pleased to announce
our newest Champion, CH Coffee-Martin's Heat Is On JH, aka Chai, a
Holly/Stretch son. Chai was Winner's Dog to finish. Both of his parents were
also Winner's Dog & Winner's Bitch at this Specialty and finished their
championships at this show weekend a few years ago.
Our Miss Karma was Best of Opposite in Sweepstakes and showed with
perfection. We are so proud of this up and comer!
Two very special girls, Boca & Sonya also each earned a Rally Novice leg at
just 16 months old. They did so wonderful!
Jaxon and I took a little trip to Oshkosh, WI May 22 & 23 and he came home
with Winner's Dog. He is becoming a natural and I am so proud of what he
has done at a young age. He now has both majors and is at 10 points.
April Showers might bring May flowers, but May brought us to Jefferson, WI
and the CWVC Specialty. We were especially thrilled to be watching Bodie
who had a fantastic time with his brothers. In Sweepstakes, Jaxon won his
12-15 Month Class, as did his sister Boca with their sister Ema right behind her
in 2nd. Such a thrill to have these litter mate have continued success. Dakota
and Bosco have their first Specialty weekend and shared the limelight in 1st on
different days. Radar loved getting out and showing, but the thrill of my
weekend was watching Gunnar with Wes and them placing 3rd.
I am so pleased to announce that we have another titled dog in the family.
Huck got her done at the hunt test on May 2 and earned his Junior Hunter! This
team of Huck and Mark is something to be proud of. Two boys that I am glad
are part of the family. Way to GO!
April is a Cruiser's kind of month. Star is confirmed pregnant on her 6th
Birthday! What a great gift.
Mid April brought better than mid reviews. Chai goes WInner's Dog in Eau
Claire getting one step closer to his Championship. On the same day down in
IA, Zeke shows how to earn his JH at only 8-months old. Congrats to Pat &
Jacqueline on a job well done! Jaxon follows in Chai's steps on Sunday in Eau
Claire earning Winner's Dog, we even got his full-time mom Donna in the ring!
The TCVC Hunt Test weekend was fabulous for us. Huck showed his dad Mark
that he knows how to do it. First time out for both of them and he earns 3 JH
legs. Not to be outdone, Arlo, a Radar grandson also earned 3 JH legs with
owner Steve who came from WI.
Tad tales Karma & Zeke out for another JH leg each. Way to go with these
Dubuque brought us to a family reunion of sorts the weekend of March 27 &
28. On Sunday, Jaxon made Dubuque all his. He was Winner's Dog for his
second major in a month. His cousin Libby followed up with her second major
and also her Championship. Congrats Wes & Jone for the wonderful work you
did with her.
It was a first for Bosco and Frank as both entered the ring for the first time this
weekend. In case anyone hasn't heard yet, I LOVE this boy! Frank looks like a
seasoned pro with him. Teresa nd Boca just keep getting better, Darlin and
Katie made a nice showing, as did Radar's grandson's Joe & Arlo with Belinda.
Hunter's puppy Brew also took a Group 2 in the match held Saturday night, a
nice accomplishment for him.
Just a little farther west, Karma and Zeke where tearing up the field with
Papaw Tad. Each now have 2 legs to their JH with hopes of finishing in the
Overall, a great weekend for the Cruiser's Clan! Keep up the great work.
Zeke follows up winning in the show ring with strong points in the field.
Entered in his first Hunt Test, dad Pat put his first JH leg on him in Idaho. Way
to go BOYS!
Zeke tears it up in Garden City with another Winner's Dog/Best of Winner's
ribbons. He is a sight to see!
As he turns 1, Jaxon shows that he only gets better with age. We head back to
Des Moines and Jaxon brings home a 3-point major on Sunday, February 21.
Again, this could not have been accomplished without the skillful help of Eva
Phillippi. He was also Reserve to the major on Saturday.
Also taking the trip was a wonderful Hunter son Kona, now Special K to me and
I can't wait to see him mature! Thank You Kathleen Daniels for helping me with
this boy and seeing him open up in just a day.
January 23 & 24 is a great weekend and a great start to 2010. In Wisconsin,
Darlin' goes Winner's Bitch at the Packerland Kennel Club show.
Just a further south in Des Moines, cousin Tigger earns back-to-back majors.
He becomes the first Champion of the year, finishing with 4 majors. Congrats
to the Radar son, who showed like a million bucks. A big thank you to Eva for
escorting him in Winner's Dog for the win and new title!
