April

April 12th:  In the wee hours of the morning, Windy (aka Lunchbox) whelped 3-wittle handsome boys lovingly dubbed The Snack Pack, sired by CH Sassafras Earn'N
His Keep "Baron".  Happy Birthday to Snackers Slim Jim, Twinkie, and Chip!


                                                                        Vizsla Club of America National Puppy Stake
                                                                                                      April 5th, 2013
                                                                                                   Calhan, Colorado

I made the trek out West with AllStars Clay, Capone, and Eva to run on terrain like they'd never seen before.  I wanted to challenge their ability to adapt to new
grounds....and in a way, to test their maturity at this age and see if Clay and Eva would handle for me.  All three made me very proud and I could not have been more
humbled by the complements all three gained from the judges, fellow exhibitors, and friends.

                                                            We did not come home empty handed........one AllStar took to the podium.....

                 EVA took FOURTH place in the 15-starter National puppy stake, handled for the first time by myself and scouted by Rodney Albin (thank you!!).
