King Ralph ~ Annabelle & Katherine were born on May 14, 1998. They are my first litter! Their parents CH Foxfire Russlure Buster MH "Russlure" and CH Quantum Abbey-Dabbey-Do SH "Abbey" our personal hunting dogs, Champions, Field Trial Gun Dogs, Senior and Master Hunters! Not bad for our first dogs! All owner trained and handled!
The combination of these two fantastic dogs produced Ralph-Annabelle and Katherine. All three were/are our hunting partners and Field Trial dogs. Ralph had Wins in Puppy-placements in Derby, Annabelle had placements in Puppy and Derby, and Katherine had placements in Puppy and Wins in Derby. Little did we know that our lives would be changing.
That year the snow was too deep to hunt. We started showing the three young pups.
Ralph just ate it up! He finished quickly, and was ranked 8th in Breed and All-Breed before he finished his Championship! His age 12 months- the year 1999. His BEST IN SHOW came at the tender age of 26 months old! His Best In Show was 1,700 dogs defeated! Ralph is still the only Best In Show Vizsla pointed in the Field. Since then our RALPH has amassed many wins at the Top Shows in The country. Won at the Eukanuba seen on Animal Planet twice!
And placing in the most competitive of Sporting Groups. All Owner Handled by our daughter Christine and myself. Ralph's outgoing personality, and keen desire to know what to do when, is what separates him from all the rest. His structure is flawless, holds a top line, an Upper arm to die for, his reach and drive is as smooth as it comes!
This is what he passes onto his offspring! Drive,Personality, and good health. Thats what makes him the Top Producer in our Breed. His get are not just Champions- thats a given!
They are Hunting dogs- Field Trial dogs-MACH Agility dog-Obedience UDX dogs-Senior Hunters-Therapy-Sporting Group Winners-Eukanuba-Westminster AOMs.
All owner handled ~ and we wouldn't want it any other way!
