Today, December 7, I left with my good friend Ingeborg (kennel von haus schladern duitsland) for Slowakia. There we had a meeting with the President of the Slowakian Vizsla Society. We learnt a lot that day and it was a great day. I was impressed by his male dog Champion Betyar z Malookcskej , a fantastic male, with a lot of achievements in the field. I've always wanted a puppy of this male and today I was lucky because I could acquire his female Kittie served by Betyan. If and when everything goes well, puppies from this combination will be born in February 2005. I do hope we can give the wire haired Vizsla breeding a good impuls.

Today, December 5, we had our yearly gathering with our Vizsla family members. We met at the Loonse and Drunense Dunes in Kaatsheuvel, a lovely region. Despite the difficult date because of 'Sinterklaas' there were 54 Vizsla's and twice as many owners. It was a great event with so many Vizsla's together. After our walk there was a meeting in the restaurant and Sinterklaas offered everyone as well as all the Vizsla's a small present. I would like to thanks everyone - also the guests from abroad - for coming and hopefully: untill next year!! For pictures please click here

During the week September 11 - 18 the World Meeting for Hungarian breeds was held in Hungary. It was an event were we really were looking forward to going to. There would be a 2-day show, seminars about breeding, and the European Cup matches of hunting would be held. But.... Kijarah got her pups and the children ought to be at school again that week. John and I could not be away together, but I really wanted to go. I wanted to visit the show, and see as much as possible wired haired Vizsla's and talk to my friends.
I was so happy that Caroline Busby (starshot kennels) my English friend wanted to go with me. We left on Thursday evening and returned home on Monday night. In 5 days we drove more that 3500 km's but we had a wonderfull show. our dogs Arasz, Brioche and Janosh won on both days the reserve CAC (also won second place) and on Saturday Arasz and Brioche won the pairs. It was quite an honour for two Dutch dogs to win from the 20 pairs that were entered. Agi - the daughter of my Hungarian friend Eva - showed them and had them win this.
On both days there were approx. 50 Vizsla's entered. BOB on Saturday was Hejocsabai Dicsoseg and on Sunday Gyermat Erdei Dahaj. Hungary won the European Cup. There was als a booklet published for this event (in three languages) about the Vizsla. People who are interested can order this booklet via me.
