“Beckett” is a moderate male with nice rib spring and front fill, handsome head, beautiful effortless movement and a fabulous temperament. He finished his AKC Championship in a handful of shows from the Bred By Exhibitor Class, earning a 5 Point Major at his show debut (6 mos. old) and 4 Point Major in his second ring appearance (the same month). He later won Best in Sweepstakes at the 2012 VCSC Specialty in Pasadena. Once a finished Champion, he took the next year off to mature; during which time he easily became a Junior Hunter, earning four passes and his title – in one weekend.
“Beckett’s” pedigree holds a proven strength in conformation, agility and field ability.

Beckett’s Dam “Q” (BISS GCH CH Tivoliz Now Pay Attention CD RN MH AX AXJ VC TDI ROM) can do anything she sets her mind to! She is a Best in Specialty Show Winner, Group Winner, Multiple Group Placer, Multiple Award of Merit recipient, and most recently won Best Veteran in Sweepstakes and Select Bitch at the prestigious 2013 Vizsla Club of Northern CA Specialty. Not just a “pretty face”, she also loves her birds and earned her Master Hunt Title and the Hunters Gun Dog trophy; in April 2013 (at age 7) she received a Judges Award of Merit in the Amateur Gun Dog stake with 26 dogs (a 5 Point Major). She is also titled in Rally, Obedience, Agility and Therapy. No wonder her nickname is “alphabet soup!”
Beckett’s Grand-Dam is “Siren” (CH Szizlin’s Ain’t She Inspir’N JH CGC ROM*) who has passed tremendous quality on to her offspring. Collectively, they’ve earned 8 Championships, 3 Best in Specialty Show Wins (BISS), 3 Best in Sweepstakes Winners, 7 Winners/Best of Winners at Specialties, 1 Master Hunter, 2 Senior Hunters and 1 Master Agility Champion (MACH). Siren is also the “poster girl” for the OFA Champions of Health. I have spent time with Siren on several occasions and in-person she certainly lives up to her “heart-dog” reputation.
“Skoda” (Beckett’s father)
Beckett’s Sire “Skoda” (CH Tivoliz Expert Witness ROM*), is a Top Producer for 2012, and has twelve (12) AKC Champions (from four litters) including a Best in Specialty Show Winner (BISS), along with several Winners/Best of Winners and Best Puppy in Sweepstakes at Specialties. I have met Skoda in person and besides good looks he has a faultless temperament, both of which he passes onto his progeny. He qualified for his Registry of Merit (see vcaweb.org) in August 2013 (pending submission).
Beckett’s pedigree has several other renown Top Producers, including two VCA Stud Dog Class Winners; 2009 – CH Kizmar Justice for All ROM* “Justice”, and 2013 and 2007 – MBISS CH Kizmar Fabulous Friday ROM “Cupid”. Both these Sires have been formidable producers including siring the 2009 VCA Nationals Winners Dog/Best of Winners (out of “Justice”), Multiple Best in Show (BIS) and Best in Specialty Show Winners (BISS) and Sporting Group Winners. “Cupid” is the sire of the #1 Vizsla in America for 2012 (and through June 2013) Platinum Grand Champion MBIS 2xNBISS MBISS GCH. Regal Point Pinnacle of Kilauea JH “Mason” who is a two-time VCA National Specialty Winner (2011 & 2013) and recently broke the record for number of BISS (Best In Specialty Show) Wins, with twenty-two (22).
We are so excited to have Beckett as a Sire and would like to thank Susan Sibley for her care of Zene during the weeklong “lovebird rendezvous”.

Zene completed her AKC Conformation Championship with a 4 Point Major; earning the majority of her points from the Bred-By-Exhibitor class. The day after finishing her title, she took back-to-back Best of Breed wins for two 5 Point Grand Champion Majors – and she made the cut both days in the Sporting Group. As a baby puppy, she won back-to-back Best Puppy in Sweepstakes from the 6-9 month puppy class. Zene has also dabbled in Obedience and she has one Beginner Novice (BN) Leg, we plan to do Rally Obedience as well; and easily earned Canine Good Citizen title. Her passion, though, is BIRDS! She is birdy can be and has a tremendous prey drive (loves rabbits and lizards when birds aren’t around). At 10.5 months old and owner/handled and trained she earned her Junior Hunter title, and she could easily get advanced Hunt Titles given the time and training to do so.
Besides her good looks and biddability, Zene has a wonderful temperament, with an up for anything attitude. She is a joy to live with and loves sitting upright in my lap (on her back) and being held. She is my first home grown girl and I could not be happier with her.
Zene’s pedigree reflects holds a proven strength in conformation and versatility:
Her Sire “Rocky” (GCH Can CH Captivatin’ Ain’t He A Knockow’t ROM) finished his AKC Championship at 7 1/2 months old with 5 Majors in only 8 shows. Before age 18 months, Rocky was awarded several Best of Breed wins and earned multiple Sporting Group Placements — all owner handled! With relative ease, Rocky finished his AKC Grand Championship (owner handled) in August 2010. He has also been a formidable producer earning his Registry of Merit (ROM) from the VCA – over four litters. He has seven (7) Champions and other titled progeny across multiple venues. In both 2011 and 2012, Zene’s Grand-Sire, “Owe’n” (MBISS GCH Tivoliz CC Joint Venture, JH ROM), earned recognition as the #1 Top Producing Sire, and as of 6/2013, he has nineteen (19) AKC Champion offspring.
Her Dam “Csilla” (CH Tamaron Okos Piros Csillag, CD RN JH CGC ROM) is a proven producer earning a Registry of Merit (ROM) from the VCA. Her progeny include a Specialty Show Winner (BISS), (5) Champions and two (2) Grand Champions (two more are Major Pointed), seven (7) Junior Hunters, and (2) Rally Novice (RN) titleholders; along with Multiple Best of Breed, Group Placing, Award of Merit, and Multiple BBE Group Placements. Csilla has consistently passed her faultless temperament and good looks to her offspring. She hails from a successful litter with siblings earning Multiple Best in Specialty Show wins, and a Best in Show.
