Roz and Ivans litter has arrived, !!. ELEVEN pups!!! We only had taken 8 reservations,expecting a normal sized litter.. but had a couple on an alternate list in case we got more, and have heard from a few more people as well, so the "extras" are now all sold! Thanks to everyone who has expressed interest in this litter!
This is the 5th litter Ivan has sired. He consistently reproduces himself in his litters, and this one is no exception.
Pups from this litter will be going to CA, MI, MO, CO, MA, OH, NJ, and MN
I just today received the nicest email (pasted below) for my websites testimonial page written by Chris Beall of MA. Chris and her family got a pup (Cooper) from Roz's 2011 litter.
Reading what she wrote makes all the trials and tribulations, all the work, all the time and committement, and even the sometimes heartbreak of breeding dogs worth it. Words such as these are why I do what I do, and what energizes me. Chris, like many of our puppy owners, is someone who has become a long distance friend, and whom now and forever is a part of our Vidor "family". Thank you Chris for such music to my ears. :)
I met Carolyn at a wirehaired vizsla specialty in Michigan. It was my first UKC show, my first WHV, and I didn't know anyone. Everyone was going up to Carolyn with questions. She was one busy woman!! I am so glad that I was one of those that went up to meet Carolyn. She has been a wealth of information and a good long distance friend. No question or problem is too much of a bother for her to help you with. This is why I did not hesitate to get my next wirehaired vizsla from her. Communication and information started before the puppies were conceived. Pictures and updates came regularly. Carolyn just doesn't sell puppies, she matches personalities, and interests. I was interested in agility, obedience and other sports I could do with my dog. Carolyn matched me up with "Cooper", who is a focused, and athletic dog, and most importantly a very loving companion. He has fit into our family from day one. He loves Cassie, our 5 year old female. Carolyn has not stopped communicating either. Any question I have or even just plain bragging about my dogs, she is always there to listen and comment, and offer her advise and experience. As future puppy owners, Carolyn sent loads of reading material to us about vaccinations, house training, learning games and more! She had us so ready for this puppy!! Cooper was already house broken when he arrived at 7 1/2 weeks. Carolyn made all the flight arrangements. We were lucky that he could fly here with his sister who was going to Maine. They came off that plane like they were seasoned travelers. He was a social puppy, not afraid of noises, loved the cat from the beginning, and chewed on his chew toys only. He has not ruined a thing in our house. We kept him in a six sided exercise pen in the house when we left for work. Never had to put in papers or a potty area. He stayed in that even when he could look over the top. It really was a funny site. He could have jumped it if he wanted. He is so well behaved! Cooper is a loving part of our family. Together with Cassie we have loads of fun. He is Mr. Personality. A talker too. When I come home from work he tells me all about his day! Carolyn has a wonderful breeding line to produce great puppies. I would not hesitate at all to get another (and another....) from Carolyn. Love those wires!!!
