Hoedown at Howard County!


Heading down to Maryland, Jackie & Taylor made time for a visit with an old friend & enjoyed the warm weather & sunshine. On to the Maryland Kennel Club show at the Howard County Fairgrounds on Sunday, Taylor got to run & roll in the hills filled with tall grasses & smell the country air. After that he & Carissa took on the large entry of very nice specials, winning Best of Breed! It was a great way to finish up the weekend. Taylor had another romp on the hillside & then a long nap all the way home…

the beach at Wildwood…


Despite the cold winds the beach remained a jumbo playground for Taylor & his Vizsla friends during the Boardwalk KC circuit. Every day after showing, we spent hours on the beach chasing frisbee, balls, sticks & rolling in the sand, Taylor even went in the ocean the first (& only day) when the air temperature hit 60′. Staying at the Days Inn Suites across the street was convenient, especially with a ocean view & balcony, we made ourselves at home. Taylor met lots of very nice people, made some new friends, & won 2 select award s & a Best of Breed the last day of the circuit, beating some serious competitors on Super Bowl Sunday!!

Blue Ribbons At The Fairgrounds!!


Taylor & Jackie are on the move again to the beautiful countryside of Back Mountain PA, finally getting out of New York traffic just in time to see the sun set over the mountains. We checked in to a nice Staybridge suites in Hazleton welcoming the warmth of the hotel room (there was still snow on the ground) with a crystal clear night sky filled with stars outside. We woke to a beautiful view of the Valley below & headed to the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds that had recently been under several feet of water. After a good run on the grounds, Taylor & Rissa won a select award, & spent the rest of the day enjoying the sun on the fairgrounds, playing frisbee & later cheering on friends in the group ring. We met some nice local people that night while waiting for Thai takeout (be sure to check out the 5 Star restaurant if you are in the area, it has the best Chinese, Thai & sushi all in one place- heaven!!), & enjoyed some chinese tea with breakfast the next morning. With the clocks turned back an hour for daylight saving’s time & a late ring time, it really was a lazy sunday. We packed up & checked out of the hotel & headed back to the Fairground for another run, there is never enough fresh air, green grass to settle the travelers tummy, & smelly things to roll in!! Of course where there are agricultural fairgrounds, there are animals (of all kinds!) & of course Taylor likes to be as “manly” as possible, & he found a black pile of something to roll in (!) right before ring time… a quick bath of waterless shampoo & in the ring he went!

Taylor Group 1

He & Carissa were amazing, winning Best of Breed with judge Carol Brown, & the nicest compliment “shown to perfection” by admirers. Whew, that “fresh air” was a charm! After another short run & scrutinizing eyes, Taylor had a long nap before the group ring.Those must’ve been sweet dreams he had because he went on to win a GROUP 1 with judge Pat Mowbray-Morgan !!! We are so proud of our Taylor & special thanks to Carissa who keeps him happy in the ring! Great teamwork!!!
