Our experience with Borzoi began in 1970, when traveling to dog shows with my husband's parents, both AKC Licensed Handlers for all breeds, I had the great good fortune to meet Bruna Henry and her magnificent Borzoi, CH. Vronsky of Volga. I was never the same and couldn't imagine my life without one of these noble creatures! The result was a memorable gift from my sweet husband of a cream and white Borzoi puppy bitch for Christmas.
With the help of several experienced breeders and mentors, our quest to begin again in Borzoiresulted in the purchase of some young hopefuls that have stolen our hearts and home.
Dale and I wish to express our deep gratitude to our mentors, Amy Sorbie (Kyrov), Karen Wilkin (Blackmoor), Cricket Murray (Kansai), Pam Buffington (Horse And Hound), Monica Barry (Laureate), Patty Hull Anderson (Zooropa), and Jan Leikam (Adrienne). These dedicated breeders of Champion Borzoi, both in the conformation ring and the coursing field, continue to be an integral part of our life with Borzoi.
2013 marks the beginning of our fifth competitive year with our Borzoi. We have had the good fortune to see Dublin become an AKC Champion, then a AKC Grand Champion, and most recently, a multiple Best In Specialty winner. Tempo has earned her AKC Championship and her Grand Championship from the puppy classes, and Reese finished her AKC Championship with a 4th Major Win at the 2012 PCKC/RMBC Specialty!
We hope you enjoy yourselves as you follow the development of these special young dogs on the next few pages. . . . check back often for updates and please feel free to contact us with your comments or questions.
We have also added two pages showing a bit of what we do when we're not stealing time to play with the Borzoi. Hope you enjoy seeing some of the beautiful Morgan horses we are privileged to train and show.
"Thank You" to those who have contributed photos, both professional and amateur, as well as information on the pedigrees of the dogs!
And finally, "Thank You" for sharing our interest and our love of the Borzoi breed in all of its many facets and magnificent splendor.
