Luke was my first Vizsla. He was bred by Laura Bauman. Luke was finished in the show ring by the age of 2. Even with a late start to his field career, He earned his Master Hunter at age 5 and his Amateur field championship by age 7. He was 3 points away from his Field Championship and Dual Championship when he retired from field competition.
Luke has sired about 11 litters of puppies, many of which have earned show, field and agility titles.
Luke’s best attributes were his temperament and attitude. He was a very happy dog, and throughout his long wonderful life has put up with additions to our canine family, and the growing pains of he and I learning together about training and competing in the field. Aside from my mentors, I feel he is the best teacher I ever had and am grateful for having such a wonderful dog to start our lines with.
Luke has crossed over the "Rainbow Bridge" and is hunting birds in heaven. His absence has left a hole in my heart, but I know he is in a better place without pain and suffering. His memory will live on in his Kids and Grandkids.
