We had a great time attending The 139th Annual Westminster Kennel Club dog show in support of our good friends Mark Goodwein and Bonnie Goodwein (Koppertone Vizslas) for the debut of the Wirehaired Vizsla. I had been helping to show the female, Olivia at all breed shows so it was lovely to have both of these fine champions in the ring making breed history for the first time. Group Winning Ch. Zoldmali Csongor SH CM, "Izzy" successfully took Best of Breed, as the first Wirehairzed Vizsla BOB at Westminster. You can bet that we had a huge cheering section for the Sporting Group debut!
It was a pleasure to see so many great people and their dogs, including the whippet GCH Sporting Fields Shameless, "Brazen" handled to perfection by Amanda Giles. Congratulations to all of the winners. Just being there is an honor!
