Announcing our newest and only second International Champion!

Shandy stacking

Shandy out of our 2003 breeding between Am/Can Ch Varazs Kiraly Sassy Sasha Am/Can CDX, Am RAE, FDJ, CGC, CGN (Sasha) and Can CH Ferngold Varazs Innovation Am/Can CD, Can RN, Am RAE, FDJ JH CGN (Nova) can now add International Champion to her titles!  She participated in the International All Breed Canine Association (IABCA) shows in Ridgefield, Washington on Oct. 9-10, 2010. In addition to receiving a very positive written evaluation, a new title, Shandy also took a Group 2nd.  She's now known as:

Cdn &International CH Varazs Artemis Vizsandy CD, AGN, AGI,

Shandy participated in 4 shows on the weekend. Judges Richard Byrd and Sylvia Hammarstrom gave her Best of Breed, with Sylvia Hammarstrom then awarding Shandy a Group 2nd. Mr Byrd thought she was a stunning veteran and really wanted to recognize the fact that even though she was older, she had it all still! Ms Hammarstrom just loved Shandy's type. She was very outspoken about how disappointed she is in most Vizslas she sees, as coming from Europe she finds most N. American Vizslas to be far too fine, flimsy and their heads all snipey.

In addition, Shandy's almost six-year old daughter, Pia was also entered and took two Best of Breeds and a Group 3rd and was also awarded her International Champion title. She's now known as Int'l CH Vitali Olympia.

Congratulations to owners Chrissie & Jens Diron of British Columbia!
