Dinah’s Pedigree


Dinah is truly an extraordinary Vizsla.  To say she hit the ring hard is a major understatement.  She won Best of Breed shown from the puppy classes by Brian.    She finished her AKC Championship title at 11 months in August 2005 at the Buckhorn Valley Kennel Club, handled by her breeder, Sarah Barr of Derby Vizslas  from the classes and went BOB over several specials!  She also won the Bred By Sporting Group and went on to win Best Bred By In Show under judge Robert Slay with Sarah that same day.  Dinah ended the year with multiple group placements and a Judges Award of Merit at the 2005 Vizsla Club of America’s National Specialty, also handled by her breeder Sarah Barr — an amazing year!  From going to Confirmation classes twice a week, to getting the Vizsla National Specialty JAM, we were very excited about our beautiful girl.

The following year Dinah became a full time special shown wonderfully by Diana Wilson.  She continued to win and place in the Sporting group as well as receive another Judges Award of Merit at the 2006 Vizsla Club of America’s National Specialty.  She ended the 2006 year as a top ten ranked Vizlsa!

Dinah took a year off from the show ring in 2007 to have her first litter with Sarah Barr, Derby Vizslas,  but that didn’t stop her from winning titles!  She was owner handled to her JH, scoring a perfect score (all 10’s) in her last leg.

She has continued to amaze us.  She loves the show ring and when she’s on her game, it is impossible to take your eyes off of her.  She’s just simply beautiful.

We would also like to thank Mercedes Vila for all of the support she has given Dinah.  We are truly appreciative of Mercedes for being a part of Dinah’s life.  Without Mercedes none of this would have been possible.

We would also like to thank Diana Wilson for not only beautifully showing Dinah, but also taking care of our beautiful girl while she has been away from us.  We know that Dinah has been well looked after with the love and attention she needs and deserves.  Let’s not forget what an amazing team in the ring you both have been.  What a treat it has been for us to see all that you two have accomplished and contemplate the successes still left ahead.  Great job Diana, and thank you!

We would also like to thank Sarah Barr of Derby Vizslas for providing us with our wonderful girl.  Dinah is what any breeder hopes/aspires to produce in their kennel and speaks to the dedication and efforts Sarah has put into her Vizslas.

Brian and Catherine McHughs
