We learned today that our two monsters' common grandmother, FC Obertakt Hollywood Wildthing JH VC, aka. Wylie, passed away yesterday. She had retired to the life of faithful family pet in downeast Maine a couple of years ago -- but was a heck of a bird-dog in her own right. The picture is of her 3rd Place at the Vizsla Club of America's National Championship in 2003; she also placed 3rd in the National Gun Dog Championship that year, too. She would have been 12 years old this November.
We'll be remembering Wylie in the energy and enthusiasm our two hellions have in the field. Love the ones you're with.
