Arrival Story:
Bartleby is the reason I love the breed so much and why I have started Starswift. He has so much personality and drive he quickly became my heart dog. I love his grins when I return home work or when he meets a person for the first time. I think it is the cutest thing I've ever seen a dog do. I was looking for a young male from a lure coursing pedigree as a running buddy for my boy Loki. I contacted Loki's owner and she put some feelers out in the Borzoi webring to see what was available. She was contacted by A Bonnie Dalzell of Silkenswift Borzoi. Just my luck! Bonnie has been breeding performance hounds for many many years and her kennel has the most titled dogs out of any kennel today. He hasn't let me down yet. He has proven him self a true Silkenswift Borzoi. He finished both his AKC and ASFA coursing titles in 5 trials each (if there would have been bigger turn outs to the trials he would have finished much quicker). Both of these were accomplished before 17 mos of age. He is now well on his way to his LCM and LCX titles. He's also pointed in LGRA and will be starting NOTRA this fall along with open field coursing. I am hoping he will get to see the show ring this winter a few times. He has an amazing Pedigree and a beautiful confirmation but it seems most dogs in the show ring today are much larger than standard or very close to the top. Bartleby is considered a small male but I still think he has a shot in the ring. Check back to see his progress.

2008 Accomplishments...

2008 has been a busy year! I've been to OK, IL, WI, IN, OH, MI, KY, GA, and VA. I participated in ASFA and AKC lure coursing winning my Field Champion Titles. Finished my AKC FC in my 3rd trial 2/23/08 and my ASFA FCH on 4/19/08 in 4 trials. I was also Best In Field in my last AKC run of the year on 11/08/08. I ended up #4 ASFA Borzoi, Top Region 6 ASFA Borzoi, and #11 AKC Borzoi!

I also started running NOTRA and LGRA in the fall but due to a lack of entries I have not finished my ORC or GRC titles. I still managed Top 25 in LGRA. In 3 race meets for NOTRA I was able to pull off #6 NOTRA Borzoi for the year and ended up in a 5 way tie for Top 25 all breed NOTRA.

All in all 2008 has been a wonderful year for me. I have some competition now with my kennel mates starting to run. 2009 should be a blast!!! I get to travel to some new places right from the start and meet some pretty amazing borzoi!

Next meets:
LGRA - Camden, SC 2/21 - 2/22
ASFA - Littlestown, PA 3/7 - 3/8
