Group 2nd for Quest

CH Varazs Kedves Quester handled by breeder Sylvia Dorosh
In only his second weekend out as a "Special" (all my dogs are special of course; this term means a Champion in dog show language), Quest (Ch Varazs Kedves Quester) achieved far more than I had ever expected! In addition to taking 5 out of 6 Best of Breeds, he placed 2nd in the Sporting Group under Judge Harry Tast of Finland at the St. Catharines dog show in Beamsville, ON on Saturday August 21/10. This placement catapulted him from nowhere to somewhere, i.e., 8th place for Vizslas in Canada in 2010 according to www.canuckdogs.com. (With his Best of Breed wins, he's closer to being in 5th place right now but the count isn't exact.)  Being from Finland and doing a lot of judging in Europe, Mr Tast has seen a lot of true Hungarian Vizslas.  Mr Tast complimented me on Quest by saying, "Now that's a Hungarian Vizsla."

Mr Tast also liked Quest's sister, Diva (Varazs Kedves Quickstep FDJ) giving her Winners Bitch, Best of Opposite over a Specials (champion) bitch for a 2 point win and Best Bred by in Breed (a special category offered by the club on Saturday.)  Thank you to Mr Tast for a wonderful day!


  1. Way to go! What a handsome dog.
