The Future

The Van Morrison Litter

Arrived May 16, 2008!


DC Del Sol Lord Of The Dance, SC, CD, GRC, LCM

GCh. Aria's Billie Holiday ROM-C


Pedigree Below


New beginnings ... this is our first Borzoi litter.  Holly's dam, Ch. Viktor's Rhapsody In Blue At Cameo ROM-C produced wonderfully in her two litters, qualifying for the Register of Merit with her American Champions as well as producing three Champions in other countries, two Best In Show winners.  Holly is jokingly called her mother's better twin, so we have high hopes for her potential.  She finished easily with three majors and wins over specials.  She has done well in limited campaigning, including a Group placement and a Best of Breed over 7 other specials the day before she came in season for this breeding.  A true Princess, she considers chasing a trash bag beneath her dignity, though squirrels are another matter.  Danceman adds his athleticism, solid structure, outstanding temperament, and the instinct to chase anything that moves.


I like litter themes that combine the parents' names.  So this one has to be Celtic Blues:  Potential Name List
