My special Skoosh finished her AKC Championship at the Rio Pecos Kennel Club Dog Show!

Skaya is my first AKC Dual Champion and I am so very grateful to her breeders: Sandra Moore (Avalon Borzoi); Dr. Susan Van de Water, MD (Borzoi Del Sol); Diana Embry (Willow Wind) and Shelby Bergstressor for this incredibly special Borzoi. Skaya truly does it all: coursing, hunting, rally obedience and conformation shows! She makes my heart beat! Thank you!

Lil Miss Skaya ran yesterday and today at the Rocky Mountain Borzoi Club’s Annual Mother’s Day Lure Coursing. On Saturday she caught the bunny during her preliminary run, rolled twice and got right back up and finished strong. Her final run on that day she got a little silly and so she wound up in the ribbons, but in fifth place.


Sunday started off cold and cloudy but perfect running weather for Borzoi! Skaya’s prelim was spectacular and her final was just as pretty! She won the Open class! The weather turned off very cold, with blowing snow and almost zero visibility so the trial was called to a halt. This means that no breed runoffs could take place but the points are awarded to the open and special and veteran class winners! Skaya received a 5 point Major!




Costume Contest at the BCOA Nationals 2014

We're from France.

The theme of the costume contest was Aliens, due to proximity to Roswell, NM. The Borzoi are rocking purple tissue lame’ capes and paper mache’ coneheads tied on with twine. Prymaat is sporting a blue tissue lame’ cape, and underneath her signature apron, capris and mary janes. It was loads of laughs and we would do it again in a heartbeat!
