mosaicworks.ca: Our Girl Rita is 14 today!
Rita is a Vizsla I imported from the United States in January 1997 from Joy Lyons of Lyons Vizslas in Florida. After a couple of months, it became obvious that she had a severe case of entropian so I couldn't use her in my breeding program. I placed her with Karen Johnston & Doug Wheeler who also owned another one of my Vizslas, Varazs Summer Solstice (Bob). On October 28, 2919 Rita celebrated her 14th Birthday. We visited Rita and Bob in August 2009, just before Bob's 14th birthday. He died just short of 14 so it's wonderful that Rita made it to 14. She lived a charmed life, having almost perished after being impaled by a stick very close to her heart many years ago.
Here's Rita 'flirting' with our Tyro back in 2009.
