UKC CH / AKC DC AFC BARBEN'S MARTINI WITH A TWIST JH
Born 10/13/2001, sired by DC AFC Triad's Dry Martini CD MH, with a powerhouse pedigree that includes FC AFC 2XNFC Fieldway's Jack Daniels (grandsire), DC AFC NFC Triad's XXIV Karat Oakleaf CD VC (granddam), and DC AFC Riverbend Deacon's Dandy CD VC ROM (grandsire), this little girl has been on the fast track since the day she hit the ground.
She finished her Breed Championship on April 5, 2003, culminating with three, back-to-back Best of Breed placements. She has incredible reach and drive; watching her move around the ring sends shivers down your spine.
Tzeitel had a steady field career as a Puppy and Derby, but we didn't do any serious training with her until she reached 3 years old, as we felt she was not ready for it until then. When the time was right, she let us know. The summer of 2004, she was sent to our pro trainer, Ray Dohse of Eshod Farms, for whoa training and retrieve training. Fall of 2004 was her debut as a "broke" gundog.
Placements in the 2004/2005 Field Trial season - her FIRST season as a "broke" Gun Dog - include:
Spring of 2005 gave us a finished Amateur Field Champion. Tzeitel finished her Field Championship with a 4-point major in January, 2006, just 14 months after her first placement in a Gun Dog stake. During her "run for the roses", she had 14 placements in Gun Dog stakes (8 Open, 6 Amateur), defeated 240 dogs, and like any modern, working mother, still had time to raise some well-socialized children (see Fancy's Page , Zeko's Page, & Clay's Page). To the best of our knowledge, Tzeitel is the youngest Vizsla Bitch to earn a Dual Championship since 1996.
Since finishing her Dual and Amateur titles, Tzeitel has mostly competed in Championships such as the VCA National Field Trial, VCA National Gun Dog Championship, NVA National Shooting Dog Championship, NVA Eastern Shooting Dog Championship, and AKC Pointing Breed Gun Dog Championship. In their spare time, she and Wayne dabble at earning her Master Hunter title, and have earned 2 of the required 6 legs.
Tzeitel's first litter (June 2005) produced 6 puppies (3 male/3 female). Three of these are in performance and/or show homes. To date, they have accomplished the following with limited showing:
UKC CH Trinity's Kiss My Grits JH: AKC - Junior Hunter title; all-breed juvenile Field Trial placements; 11 Conformation points with 4 Best of Breed placements. UKC - Finished her Show Championship with two Group 3 and one Group 1 placement in one weekend of showing, #4 ranked Conformation vizsla in UKC for 2007.
FC Trinity's Cotton Gin Shooter: Finished his Field Champion title at age 2 1/2 years competing in all-breed (mostly GSP) trials, Winner of 2007 NVA Eastern Shooting Dog Derby Classic; made callbacks at 2007 VCA National Field Trial (youngest dog entered); #4 placement at 2008 VCA National Gun Dog Championships (youngest dog entered); multiple placements in All-Breed horseback field trials; pointed in the Show ring.
CH Trinity's Georgia Red Clay JH: first of the gang to earn his Junior Hunter title; finished his show Championship with 3 3-point majors within a month of each other.
Tzeitel's April 08 litter by FC O Mega gave us a phenomenal litter with tremendous potential in both the field and show ring.
In August, 2008, we decided to dust Tzeitel off and show her in UKC just for fun. In one 6-show weekend, we were greatly rewarded with 3 Group 2's, a Group 3 and Group 4, and ultimately a UKC Champion. Our 7-year old girl still has what it takes to knock their socks off, and her quality simply can't be denied no matter who's logo is on the ribbons.
