It all started when I took Skaya for a practice run at an ASFA LC in Falcon, Colorado on the 14th. She did so well, that I decided to QC her the very next weekend at the AKC LC up in Orchard, Colorado. Her QC run was with Scheztaya Seven Seas Of Rhye (Lara) and both did very well! So well that I decided to put Skaya in for the trial as there was a 4 pt major in Borzoi. This meant two more runs on my little girly and she was so game! Her preliminary run in the trial netted her a 75 and at this point I knew the goatheads and a third run that day would be really tough. She managed to do really well though placing a very close second place to Tom & KC’s Guinness by just one point. Skaya’s very first AKC Lure Coursing has her now in the hunt with 2 points. We are so looking forward to her next trial, probably at the BCOA National Specialty!

The D Litter made it to Tennessee thanks to Shelby Bergstresser and she kindly took some photos of these sweet little Borzoi to share! The whole litter isn’t represented, just some cute snaps before it got dark or started to rain.
Our little Darkskaya Dare is in there somewhere!
This coming weekend Sandra hopes to do some stacked shots!
More to come!
The weekend of January 5, 2013, Boomer is getting a Borzoi buddy!
You can view their pedigree here: CJ X Tigress Puppies
Boomer & I have no idea which little girl we are getting because the puppy evaluations haven’t been done yet. We only know we are getting a girl at this point and that she will be dark: Black & Tan, Black & Brindle or Mahogany. Sane, sound and bred to run like the wind!
Since this litter is a “D” litter so her name must begin with a “D”.
here are some contenders:
Avalon DeedsODerringDo WW and her call name would be Dare. (It also rhymes with Tangmalangaloo!)
Avalon Darkskaya O WillowWind (oooh this is growing on me!)
Avalon Dare the Darkest WillowWind (not bad…)
The final name choice is: Avalon WW Darkskaya Dare (call name Skaya)
When we get photos we will post!!!
