Our Trip to Hungary

We had a fantastic trip to Hungary. The food is incredible, the sights beautiful, and the baths relaxing. The best part was visiting Zoldmali Kennels and bringing home our two new additions to the family! See our pictures below. Thank you to Zsofi and Lazi - We had an amazing time and learned so much. Truly a trip of a lifetime!

TRAck and Kill

Gambit had a very complicated but successful track and kill. The rabbit played dead when he finally found it then gave a good quick chase which Gambit successfully ended. After such a complicated track, it was very good for Gambit's confidence to have found the rabbit!

Quill's preferred napping spot

  Quill like (like most WH Vizslas) LOVE to nap on people. She will hunt for a napping spot and will beg to climb up into your lap. She's a good snuggle bug.
