Desert Fun Bunch AKC LC…


Skaya was BOB at the Desert Fun Bunch AKC Lure Coursing on Saturday! This garners another 2 points bringing her to 11 points + one major!!

Made the decision not to run for BIF as she had a take attempt in finals and was just the slightest bit gimpy on her right shoulder. She won an awesome prize, a lovely embroidered pillow for her crate, a cookie and poop bags and some lovely ribbons!

Thank you to co-owner Leonore Abordo for suggesting we tag along. and to Rose’ Monarch for putting us up. A wonderful Arizona Coursing Club with fabulous people!

Thanks for the great time Desert Fun Bunch!

This is the first weekend that I showed one of my Borzoi exclusively! We got a good hard look on Saturday but were second in Open Bitches. On Sunday, Skaya was RWB. This was a wonderful show, with great footing & facilities and GORGEOUS country to just enjoy!

Better luck to us next time and huge congratulations to all of my Borzoi friends who did so well!
