generations pass

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.

Safe journey over the rainbow Wylie. You can count on Momo & Jozi to carry on your fielding ways!

Sorry to hear about Wylie. She lives on in your pups.

Wylie was a great representative of the breed and a true sweetheart! She'll be missed, but Nike is there waiting for her to show her the bird fields and streams.

I'll hug her sibling Baron that much closer tonight and send good wishes.

Baron, Roxy and Benny

I was so sad to hear of her passing. I see her every day in Kyler, who looks and acts just like her from what I am told!
I didn't know her well, but I will miss her...

Kim :(

Thanks for saying hi, I've admired your site for several months now. The cycling/upland passion we share, it's an interesting combo.
