What's in your Kong?

30c feels like   39c
86f feels like 102f
and it's still morning

Cookies, peanut butter & yogurt - refreshing!

2 HITs for the weekend

Here's a video of part of Uncle Tyro's Rally-O run in the downpour. To go with the visual, turn up the volume and have a listen. In spite of the soaking, notice that Uncle T's tail is up and wagging!!

On Saturday, everyone was regularly running for cover.
On Sunday, everyone was seeking shade!

Sizzle in the Drizzle

June 9th
Oxford Dog Sports
United Kennel Club Show
Princeton, ON
Judge:  Joy Leiskau


First outdoor show
First day in the ring with Breeder/Co-owner Sylvia Dorosh

My UKC name is now:
BIS URO1 Varazs Mokany Kiralyi Orban

Thank you to Laurie Soutar of Oxford Dog Sports, all the judges, and all the great volunteers for a fabulous day of Conformation, Rally-O and Weight Pull in spite of the variable weather (intermittent drizzle and downpours with brief moments of sunshine).  

I was entered in Conformation and Miska-Mom and Uncle Tyro were entered in Rally-O.  For their first run they placed 2nd and 3rd, respectively.  For their second run, Tyro scored a 93 even though he had to work through a torrential downpour and Miska-Mom earned a perfect score of 100 and High in Trial (HIT)!

What a great day of fun and success for the Varazs pups!
