A Little History of Midan Vizslas
In February 1996, we saw a Vizsla in the Westminster Dog Show that was shown on the USA television network. We thought that
may be the breed for us, so in April, we brought "Rascal" home, and he has been "WOWing" us ever since.
When Rascal was 12 weeks old we noticed some odd behavior. Rascal would freeze, and remain motionless for periods
of time. It finally dawned on us that he was pointing bugs! My husband, Mike, and I obtained a bird wing, (don't ask) and
tied it to some fishing line like one of our dog books suggested. When Rascal rounded the corner, he winded the bird wing
and froze into a beautiful and stylish point. He remained there while I went inside, found the camera and proceeded to photograph
him from every angle.
WE WERE HOOKED!!
Five and a half years later, his name reads Dual Champion Barben's
Rapacious Rascal, Master Hunter. He is our pride and joy, and is a fine example of the versatile Vizsla.
the way, we have made some additions to our Vizsla family; Champion Barben's Blaze Starr, Champion Barben's The Tempest, and
Tempest's daughter, Midan's Storm of the Century.
After an extended break from the dog world, (Mike got hurt),
we are looking forward to campaigning Mimi, (Midan's Storm of the Century) and some of her litter mates for their Show Championships.
At Mimi's 3rd show, she was Reserve Winners Bitch to a 4 point major. She is also crazy about birds, so this fall, she will
try competing in the field. Mimi's sister Cleo, (Ch. Midan's Queen of Denial), just finished her Show Championship this July
2001. She too is crazy about birds and has Dual Championship potential.
