Steve and I have been showing Borzoi
since 1975. Most of our dogs have been owner handled to
their championships. We have had specialty winners, group
placers and an all-breed Best In Show
We have been lure coursing Borzoi since the late 70s. We
have also shown our Borzoi in obedience, rally
and agility trials.
We enjoy helping clubs put on dog events.
We are life members of the Borzoi Club of America. I
served BCOA as treasurer for 7 years, region 6 governor for 2
years and I am still on
several committees. We are life members of the
Midwest Borzoi Club. We have been awarded both the Breeder
Award and the Service Award for the Midwest Borzoi Club.
served MBC as treasurer, corresponding secretary, and on several committees for MBC, and am currently the
president. We were active members of the Dayton
Kennel Club (conformation shows) for over 30 years. I am
an instructor at the Dayton Dog Training Club
(obedience, rally and agility trials). We are founders and
still active members of the OKI Gazehound
Organization (AKC and ASFA lure coursing trials). We have
been lure coursing judges for ASFA since 1986 and have been AKC
lure coursing judges since 1991. We have judged puppy &
veteran (conformation) sweepstakes for several Borzoi specialty clubs. I
judged the Futurity at the 2000 Borzoi National
Specialty, and I judged the sweepstakes at the 2012 Borzoi
All our Borzoi live in the house with us, and run together in
the yards. They currently share our home with cats and 2 shelties "Kyle" & "James". In the
past, we have had an Irish Setter "Jake Larue C.D."
(my first obedience titled dog), a
whippet Dusty (2000 - 2014), a
sheltie-whippet cross-bred (silken windhound) "Annie", and 3
shepherd-retriever cross-breds (All-Americans) "Samantha"
"Heather" and "Barney".
