USDAA Agility fun

Today we had fun AND success at our first USDAA agility trial. Polo got 3rd place in the Standard run with a "Q" (qualified), and Rudy got 2nd place in Jumpers with a "Q"!!
It was a warm day, but we made ourselves a nice shady spot and tried to stay cool any way we could.

A big, long chew

The boys were very pleased with what we brought back from the Durham Kennel Club dog show this weekend. YUM!!

Hungarian Gold again!

Polo and Rudy cheered for both the US and Hungarian Water Polo teams during the Olympics. In the end, the Hungarian's took gold and the US silver.

Polo says "that's my team!"

What we did on our summer vacation ... Part 4

At Aunt Debbie's we got to frolic in the woods with Mommie Siren, and some of our favorite relatives ... Owen, Baxter, and the newest addition to the Tivoliz clan: Miss Harlow. She's quite a beauty and not shy in the least. Here she is showing the boys who's boss ...
Check back later for some videos of this visit.

What we did on our summer vacation ... Part 3

We were sad to have to get back in the car for the long drive home, but visiting with more Vizsla family made for a terrific trip. Next up, a visit with Polo's sister Hannah!Polo (left), Hannah (center), and Rudy (right)

We went to a wonderful park for off-leash running and swimming. The weather was perfect - we could not have had a better time. Thanks, Melissa and Hannah!!

We tried to talk them into posing for a picture with treats, but those Vizslas are too smart for that! Hopefully, Aunt Melissa got a good one ...
One more stop to go ... a visit to Aunt Debbie's and Mommy Siren! Video to follow ...

The Beach!!

We went swimming in the ocean on Cape Cod and loved it. No swimming pictures, but here's what we did when not swimming:

Digging in the sand, retrieving a toy in the back yard, and reconnecting with our human cousins.

What we did on our summer vacation ...

We had a long car ride up north, but got to visit our Vizsla family along the way.
First up - Rudy's sister 'Q':

The two of them were so much alike! They had a grand time chasing eachother around the yard and inside.

Thanks to Sue, Q and Rumor for a great visit!!

Hungarian Gold!

It's hard to believe that 4 years ago we were anticipating bringing home our first Vizsla pup and struggling to find the right name for him. We searched Hungarian websites for names and word translations, but nothing came together until we were watching the Olympics and heard that the water polo team was Hungary's national sport! And they took the gold medal in Athens. So that's how our 'Polo' got his name: Ch. Tivoliz Cpr Crk Hungarian Gold.

Polo sends "Congrats" to his native countrymen for winning their third straight gold medal in water polo at the Olympics!! And to the U.S. for getting the silver!
