Message from Petra vd Meijden about her puppy Quodian's Csilla (called Donna). Donna is a daughter of our Csupy and Okos. We probably will hear more about her and forthcoming shows!
Yesterday we went to the dogshow in Bleiwswijk. What an experience! Donna had to get used to this, and found it all strange at first. All those people and dogs! After a while she was OK with it. She was the only wire haired Vizsla in the babyclass, so no competition. Hahaha. Dinna and me walked through the ring and after judging she was awarded with a 'promising'. I was very proud ofcourse. Later that day we were expected in the ring for the judging of the best baby of the show and Donna got a 6th place!! We have a lovely cup now and we are very proud!!

In the first week of October there was a Hungarian show organized as well as a clubshow and Coupe d'Europe fieldtrials . Ofcourse I had to be there and together with my good friend René Peeters I travelled to Budapest and Cégled. We travelled more than 2000 miles in 7 days but it was worth the effort. A great show with excellent results. A little less good clubshow because of the bad weather and long waiting but above all a great few days on the fields with good hunting and fieldwork. Unfortunately I could not participate due to a communication problem. Here is the link to the images.

Messagr from Austria about Zottel:
Servus, am Samstag waren Zottel und ich sehr Erfolgreich bei der IHA Tulln Zottel wurde im Formwert mit V-1 bewertet. und er wurde Jugendbester. Rassebester wurde er leider nicht weil er zu dünn ist. Er hat aber eine sehr ausgeprägte Muskulatur. Die Richterin hat am Schluss zu mir gesagt das Zottel der beste Hund ist den Sie je in Österreich gesehen hat.

Message from Germany: Jaksi von Haus Schladren ( Son of our Bercsi and Quodian's Ildi ) got a first prize on the HZP with 325 points. A great result especially since most competitors were German wire haired. Congratulations to the owner and breeder.

Message from Chili from our little Szylke, daughter of Csupy who started a big adventure. We wish her all the best and we hope to receive an update every now and then!
I am a 3,5 months old puppy and emigrated to a ranch in Chili just one week ago. In short my adventure:
It started a few months ago, when Lies & John received a message from my new boss. They were looking for a sturdy lady who was willing to move to a ranch in South America. Soon I convinced Lies that I had good qualities: a good nose, independent, sometimes even impudent, but this last quality sometimes is even handy because the world is quite large: my garden is 15 ha and the nature reserve even more than 800 ha!
And so my adventures started: it is great here: I can wander around the whole day, saw calves being born, met horses, noticed birds building nests and the weather is great since spring just started. I have to learn a lot according to my boss and we train on daily basis. I will go with my boss when he is horseriding, travel around and will hunt.
I want to thank John & Lies that they've chosen me to go to Cynthia and Maikel. I will send a message every now and then to keep you posted about my adventures!
Hasta la Vizsla,

Dear readers. Ofcourse it is great to mention all the great results that our dogs get all over the world, on shows and fieldtrials. Champion, Worldchampion, Trials et etc. But I am still most proud of messages like the one below. This is why we breed Vizslas in the first place!
I hope all is well with you and that Csupy and her puppies are all healthy. I know Monique keeps you well supplied with information and photos of Aristos, but I just wanted to express my own sincere appreciation once again of what a wonderful dog you have given us. I never thought I would have a dog who could surpass my last one for good character, but Ari is at the very least his equal and in many respects better. His gives both of us so much joy every day, and it is an absolute delight to see how he develops and makes friends with everyone. I could not hope for more in a canine companion than what he is now, and he just keeps getting better. I am so glad that Monique talked me into a Vizsla and that we found a breeder with such excellent standards. Best regards,
August 15, 2008
A very old message already, but still nice to read! Quodian's Winrick became 3rd best puppy in show in Hungary on a national Hungarian Breed show (2007.09.02). Thanks and congrats to his owner Novecki Katalin .

We said goodbye to Boglárka. She now lives with Dennis and Dushi Gideonse and her older brother Anton (Quodian's Simon ) partly in France, partly in the Netherlands. Lotte, as she is called now has a very good home now. Baranka on the right is called Baranka now and is being spoilt by her owner John.

News from Denmark about Quodian's Wanda
Hi Lies. I am especially happy to tell you that Wagga passed her retrieval test today with max points - 30. water, forrest and rabbit trail. 25 dogs participated, 20 passed, only 3 had max points. 2 short haired vizslas and one wire participated. 2 vizslas passed with 30 and 27 points. Big smile. I reckon Wagga will get the Danish Vizsla Club pokal for this test, since it goes to the best result or if even score to the youngest. There will be more tests, so we shall see.
August 5, 2008
We are very proud that Quodian's Pandur is now World Champion! He was judged in the working class by Tamas Jakkel from Hungary on the world dog show in Sweden (2008). We are very grateful and happy for owner Hanna Salvolanen from Finland.

Words are enough..
Dear Lies and Jinke
Today around 2pm Gulyas died. We are so sad that he is no longer with us, but we know that there was no other solution and that we could not go on like this. We loved Gulyas the moment we saw him and during the 9 months that we took care of him, we loved him more and more. We cared for him a lot and the loss we feel now can't be described, but we wouldn't have missed a second of it. We are happy that Gulyas could spend some of his time with us. Dora lies on the couch on her own now and we wonder if she realizes that Gulyas won't come back. I don't think so. She will miss him as well. Dora comforts us, but we would have wanted Gulyas around some more time. We can't change it unfortunately. Love from Janine, Erik, Milan, Dennis, Jesse and Dora...
A last farewell from Gulyas

News about Buster:
Attached 3 images of Buster. He is lovely. As feom day one he feels at home. Ofcourse he already fell into the pond a few times. Nearby is a forest where we walk him a lot. Well that said, HE runs around and we walk quietly. He is really lively and he can really obey (if and when he likes it). Marjo goes to obedience class for puppies with him. We are very happy with him. We hope to meet again on the Vizsla gathering!

We also got some news from the US:
You may have read or heard already, but one of Leahs offspring, GRCH,TAN, Vidor's Aura ("Breeze") got a UKC Best in Show this past weekend. This makes Leah not only the top producing dam of champions in the USA, but now the dam of the firs HWV to go Best in Show in a US all breed registry. I am so very proud of her and her kids....and will be smiling for at least a week! If you wish to post about her wonderful contribution to this breed in the US...I have attached a favorite photo of mine of her.
PS...I just may give showing her a try this summer and get her Championship at the ripe age of 6 yrs old. Even if she IS mine, I can say without a doubt, she IS the most gorgeous, and most balanced and correct female HWV I have ever seen. She certainly carries the Quodians/Quodijins flag for you here in the US. Carlolyn DeFiore Vidor Vizsla's USA

We got some new about Zappa:
Attached some photographs of Zappa, when he was 4 months old. We are very fond of Zappa and he enjoys our garden, but he even prefers the Ulvenhoutse Bos where he is able to run around and where he can play and socialize with other dogs. Zappa grows well and is very healthy. In short: he is doing great. We will keep you posted about Zappa. Regards from his owners.

We received a very nice message from Denmark abut Quodian's Wanda:
I am pleased to inform you that Wagga was awarded a 1st. prize for her first schweiss test today. The track was 400 meters and had laid for 3 hours.
Winning on a show is nice, but winning on a field trial is even better. I am very proud of you!
And this is Quodian's Borostyan...(we call her Dara)
at this moment she hears whistling (because a picture is taken) but Dara is busy with other things. There are lots of ducks, and that is far more interesting than being photographed! Dara lives is Friesland (Bolsward) and enjoys the water and the fields. We (Jelle and Hinke, kids and grandchildren) could not wish for a better dog. Thanks Lies!

We received some news about Betyar:
Little Betyar just went to his very first show and had quite the weekend. I drove almost 1000 miles, 14 hrs. to Perry, Georgia this past weekend for the first ever WHVCA match, along with a full weekend of UKC shows held by the Middle Georgia Kennel Club.
The fun match (no points or anything official) had 8 dogs & puppies in it, 4 puppies: 2 were 3-6 months, 2 6-12 months, and 4 open adults. A friend of Nancy's who raises & field trials smooth vizslas and has a WHV was our judge. It was just Nancy & me to handle the dogs, until we got some little junior handlers, daughters of another friend to help us out. They did a super job, too!! Betyar, who is just 13 weeks old, was Best Puppy and then won Best in Match!!!!!

We got a lot of photograpgs and messages from our puppyowners. Too much to add them all to the website at this moment. Thanks a lot for sending these! I also would like to say thanks to all of you who sent me flowers and cards after the funeral. Thanks!

We got a message from Austria about Zoltan
Servus, mal wieder ein Lagebericht über Zolti. Er entwickelt sich prächtig hat nun schon 15 kg, ein super Fell. Wir gehen in eine normale Hundeschule um Ihn zu sozialisieren. Am Anfang war er noch bei den Welpen, aber sein Drahthaartemperament hat uns veranlasst ihn bei den großen dazu zu geben. In die Jagdhundeschule gehen wir auch. Seine Nase ist exzellent. Er hat schon frische Hasen und Fasanengeläufe ausgearbeitet. Eine Schleppe mit einer Wildschweinschwarte hat er trotz Dauerregen nach zwei Stunden super ausgearbeitet. Alles in allem wird er sicher ein super Jagdgefährte.....nur ist er nach dem Üben immer sooo müde ( siehe Fotos ) Grüße aus der Steiermark Rolf

There is also some bad news. Our Ricky become seriously ill and our vet advises us to prevent any further suffering. An aggressive tumour was the cause of his illness. Dear Ricky (Fram od Smutné Ricky) you were a great dog that went through a whole lot: born in the Tsjech Republic, sold to Slowakia and after that sold to the United States, and spending your last years in Holland. For us you will live further in all your puppies all over the world.

Our Berci (komloseri Bator ) ecomes Int. Champion on the show in Osnabruck (Germany). Hij becomes BOB and it could get any better when he also wins group 7: unique in Germany. I was so proud! During the judging for BIS only the best in show was chosen, so no more placements there. A great ending of Berci's show career.

We are very proud of Erna Gunderson and her dog Bajusz. They get a F certificate with a 2nd VG. I think Bajusz is the first wire haired in Holland with this result!

Field trial Vizsla Club on March 27, 2008 : our Csupi wins her Novice class after a difficult start and in bad weather. Quodian's Una (silke) our short haired Vizsla is still with us and every now and then she drives us insane with her energy and tricks. She shows a lot of hunting potential but due to everything that has happened we had no time to train with her. We are happy that her hips and eyes are fine and she is free from genetic diseases as from April 10, 2008. We planned to enter her for the TAN (test natural abilities for hunting), organizes by the Belgian Vizsla Society.

We got an update on Quodian's Utas Youp, one of our short-haired puppies
It's been a while, so we decided to let you know how Youp does. Last update was about Youp when he got his exam 'gehoorzame huishond' and was placed first. After that, he was also placed first during the next exam (gehoorzame huishond 2). We went on with agility and got third. I think he could not get sleep after that. Speed is not his problem, no-one can keep track during the race. But due to his enthousiasm he sometimes looses points. We just go on with agility and try to temper his enthousiasm a little bit. I bet we can expect something from him during competitions. In short: he does well, is healthy, is well trained and we can't think of a life without him.
Bye for now from John, Ilona, Naomi and a paw from Youp

In my friend's kennel, a special litter was born: puppies of the rare breed Griffon Blue de Gascogne. Just take a look on the website. It is good that our couch is full (with our Vizsla's), who knows what would have happened otherwise!!!!

New about Quodian's Una
Una ('Silke') came back to us in November 2007. She is one of the short haired Vizsla's from Ciska's one and only litter.
Silke is a passionate dog and very active, but is also easy to handle and has a lovely character. All this made us decide to keep Silke. We will visit some shows with her and we also hope to be able to develop her hunting abilities. Meanwhile we had official hipdysplasia x-rays taken and the result was a fine A. We are very happy with that. From time to time we will add updates about Silke on this page.

We got a great letter about Tuunde from Crete.
I send you an update about our Tuunde (Quodian's Xenia). Lovely, lovely, huge, strong and sometimes clumsy. But also gorgeous a real beauty. Maybe the largest wire haired Vizsla female in the world, steady on a weight of 33 kgs. What a darling! She had some ear problems, but that is improving already with some antibiotics and drops. She shadows us the whole day and is very naughty with her playmate Luka, the white 'devil' who is only a few months older than Tuunde. About food: we would be able to feed her five times a day, something we won't do obviously.
Regards from both of us, Ton & Marian.
