2018, what a year!

Last year, the amazing Go Litter started their sophomore season in the wide world of Borzoi.
They amazed, surprised and frankly came to play and play hard!
I am beyond thrilled for their owners who have made the Go Litter shine! Thank you for being such fabulous homes for your Borzoi!
As always I thank, from the depths of my heart, my wonderful friend and co-breeder, Sandra Moore-Doby and my other wonderful friend and the owner/breeder of the amazing Zoiboyz Gibson, KC Thompson. Without the love and support of you two, this breeding would just be an idea, instead of the beautiful reality it truly is. Thank you!

Margot is the 2018-19 NOFCA Rookie Borzoi, the #2 NOFCA Borzoi and the #3 NOFCA All Breed Hound! Margot’s owner, Linda Turner shared a tidbit with me: “Margot has over 300 points her first year out. That’s pretty damn awesome. That does include the Feb hunts in Roswell which technically are next season’s points.” Margot indeed kicked off her 2019-20 season with a 1st place in the SWCC Borzoi Breed Hunt on Feb 2 and a 3rd place the following day to earn the Overall Winner of the Borzoi Winter Bonanza!
Margot also has both of her AKC LC majors and is just getting started! She also placed in her Sweepstakes class and her regular class at the 2018 BCOA National Specialty! She is owned and loved by Linda Turner and Sandra Moore. Look for this spectacular Borzoi to really rock 2019!

CH Perlova Avalon Giddy Up Go, CC, CM, JSR

CH Perlova Avalon Giddy Up Go, CC, CM, JSR
At the tender age of 17 months, Giddy earned her NOFCA CC with AK’s in her preliminary and final, winning an SWCC Mixed Hunt! Giddy was the 2017-2018 NOFCA Rookie Borzoi! The following May she finished her AKC breed Championship with four major wins under four different judges and to put the cherry on it, a Hound Group 4. Along with her mama, she managed to become one of the first LGRA JSR’s in New Mexico! This past November, Giddy earned the last points for her NOFCA CM. I love this Borzoi so much and cannot believe I bred her or that she is really mine own.
Giddy will be specialed this year in the hopes of earning her GCH. The beautiful Giddy-Go is owned, loved, treasured by Leigh and Ken Paintin.

This past weekend Boomer & Skaya and their erstwhile handler, have been attending a four trial weekend at Latigo Trails Equestrian Center. Our hometown Obedience & Rally Trials! At the first Rally Trial on Saturday morning, Ch Oxota RiverRun Tangmalangaloo Avalon, JC, CGC (AKA da Boom) was FIRST in his Rally Novice B class under judge Bonnie Lee with a score of 85! For his first time in the Rally ring? YAHOO! Skaya AKA (Avalon Ww Darkskaya Dare, SC, CGC (major ptd CH & FCh) the morning trial was less than stellar and she DNQ. At Saturday’s second trial, Boomer was again FIRST in his Rally Novice B class with a score of 93 under judge Nancy Grimm! Skaya’s second time in the ring she QUALIFIED with a 75, and the judge told me I cost her 10 points by finishing her the wrong direction on the last station! ARRGH! Handler error. However, her score was good enough for third place! Today, at the Pikes Peak Obedience Club Trials… Boomer is now known as: CH Oxota RiverRun Tangmalangaloo Avalon, JC, CGC, RN!!!! He completed his Rally Novice Title with another FIRST place and a score of 82!! Skaya garnered her second leg at the morning trial with a third place and score of 72 and at the afternoon trial completed her Tally Novice title with a 73!!!
