Missy has been working really hard on learning how to become a big dog. She has completed Level 1 and 2 Obedience and currently working in Rally O. She loves going to the dog park and running wild and free. It is truly a treat having a vizsla in our home.
Missy started to show for breed being handled by Jill. We hope to become a champion to fall in line with the rest of the cruiser dogs. Missy got stuborn and asked for Suzanne to handle her in the show ring so we are still working with the other Cruisers to be a top performer.
Suzanne first learned of the vizsla breed when a vizsla came into her friend’s home. She always wanted a dog with red hair to look like her, funny how people look like their dogs. Well this is the perfect dog for her and her family. Missy’s name was picked out long before we found the litter to pick from. Her name is Artemis as many of you know she is the goddess of the hunt. Suzanne likes to hunt birds, so does my dog. We like to swim in the lake and so does our dog. We also are very good at lying on the couch and watching Animal Planet or other good shows. Missy has been such a great joy in my family we are meeting new people, trying new things and bragging about our successes. I am so glad I am a part of this breed. Missy is such a great sport when it comes to trying on clothes to entertain my kids, and she is also very helpful in the kitchen, quick to pick up anything I drop on the floor or the occasional unauthorized food sampling from the counter. Missy has been inventing new games for us to play like guess which hole I buried your dinner in or chase me I have something in my mouth I shouldn’t. I find I look forward to ending my work day knowing she is home waiting for me with a happy face and affection.
Many club members say you can’t own just one of these dogs but with having an older mixed breed in the house that is the way it is for now. I enjoy watching how dogs socialize and interact with people and other dogs. I do think our dogs are prejudice though if we go to the dog park and there is another vizsla there that is who they pick to play with, no other dog can exist if they are two red heads in the park. So hug your dog and tell them you love them, they listen very well when they want to.
