  • Vizsla Club of America National Show 4/29-5/2/2015.  Corey and Tate both
    showed in BOB under breeder judge Dr. Richard Hilderman. Tate showed
    in the 1st group of 92 male specials and made "the cut" (see his page!).  
    He went back in later that day making the 2nd cut but was excused on the
    3rd cut. Tate showed beautifully and I couldn't have been prouder of him.  
    We appreciated all the support that our friends gave us.  Corey was in the
    6th group to show and while he did a great job he was excused.  We had a
    fantastic time at Nationals hanging out with friends and watching all the
    great dogs.

    was a very, very nice dog. His decision between the BOB and Select Dog
    was very close ,on any given day the BOB could have been us.  Thank
    you Judge Gaeta for the compliments.  I'm so proud of Corey and happy
    we completed this title.  Corey will be returning to field work this fall to
    compete for his SH title.
  • Look for some exciting news coming from Windswept Acre's later this
  • July 2015
  • We've had some big changes going on Windswept Acre's and have added
    a new arrival.  Over 22 years of only having male Vizslas,  we have a girl
    residing at Windswept Acre's.  Say hello to Derby's New Girl In Town At
    Windswept Acre's aka "Brinkley."  See her web page for more information.  
    Thank you Sarah Barr, her breeder, we love this girl.
  • August 2015
  • Foster will be going to live with my friends, Nancy and Ray in Northern
    Ohio.  They also own Ezsti who is a Gauge daughter.  Nancy enjoys
    showing in agility and obedience so Foster will have plenty to keep him
    busy.  This is a great opportunity for everyone especially for Foster.  
    Thank you Nancy and Ray.
  • September 2015
  • Its been pretty quiet here at Windswept Acres since Tate is retired from
    routine showing and Corey is also taking a break.
  • Brinkley has been to 2 to puppy matches and continues to improve her
    showing skills.  She's such a lovely girl.
  • Minor knee surgery for me later this month with recovery into October.
  • Foster is doing well in his new home bringing joy to his new "parents" and
    companionship to Eszti (Gauge daughter.)
  • October 2015
  • Well after recuperating from surgery, Brinkley and I went to a puppy
    match.  She showed like a champ and made Derby and Windswept Acre's
    proud.  Shame the judge didn't see this also.  We are considering  possible
    show debut in December.
  • We had very sad news this month.  My dear friends who adopted Foster
    lost Eszti (CH Lada's Windswept Dream Star NA NAJ CGC OA), a Gauge
    daughter.  She was lost suddely after a brief illness.  My sympathy to
    Nancy, Ray and Foster.  Another great dog who crossed over the Rainbow
    Bridge way too soon.
  • November 2015
  • No big plans for this month. Brinkley will continue in her obedience class
    and we'll all enjoy the beautiful fall weather.  Hope to visit all our friends
    showing at the Columbus Ohio Cluster this month.
  • Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!
  • December 2015
  • Brinkley (Derby's New Girl In Town At Windswept Acre's) turned 6 months
    old and competed in her 1st dog show December 3-6 at the I-X Center in
    Cleveland, Ohio.  She showed like a seasoned professional and made me
    proud.  We even got to see her sister Scout and compete with her.  
    Brinkley made many new friends and enjoyed her first hotel experience.
  • The holidays were fun and enjoyably spent with family and friends.  I sent
    out a "family" picture with our cards.
