Vizslas at Crufts

Yey! Massive congratulations to the Quad shoot in Norfolk & to Auntie Tolly and our sisters Bay, Eszti and Ilka on winning the HUGE (23 entries) all breeds Gamekeepers working team class. Beating other HPRs and all those pesky retrievers and tiresome spaniels. Awesome.

Read all about their achievement here on the HVS site. Well done girls and for all being placed in your huge breed classes too. Proof (who needs it?) that we red people can be truly versatile. Beautiful as well clever.
Mz Bert is going to write to that Ronnie Irving chap to ask if next years Crufts can include a freestyle rabbit retrieve competition.

In the show classes we redgirls were in the ribbons too!

Mz Bert says for once budge up always headline hogging, attention seeking Mz Hat - my turn for the limelight - this is ME! 2nd place in mid limit. People say I move nicely. Blimey. They haven't seen me on the hills! Run, run, run.

Mz Hat is sulking. Pout! I got a rosette too - 3rd place in the biggest class of the day - 18 entries - but did anybody care enough to take a pic? No they did not! Sob. Am I losing my touch? Is it b'cuz I iz red?All I have is the paperwork.

Our boring old mum wants to say. For me it was just such a fab day. And the best bit by far was talking to so many lovely people about important things like health issues. And properly meeting folks who until then I had only spoken to in emails or on the phone. Lucy, Marcus, Jackie and as always Gillian and her special Spice - I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so honest and open about your vizslas with polymyositis. Lucy your boy Alfie's contribution to the research is immeasurable. We are so happy that you have another red person with whom to share your life.

Albert !!! Our new hairy heart-throb. We would have liked to show you his blue rozzie. But he ate it!

Here is sweet puppy Albert. And his best pal Alfie.
