    Hey guys! My name is Yvonne (clever username, amiright?) and I have a little 6 month old Vizsla named Penny! She is the prettiest, smartest V in all the land ;)

    No, but seriously. She is my dream dog! We are from Cape Breton ..any other east coasters around here? And more importantly ..any other V owners here?!

    Here are some photos of my beauty queen pup-

    Oh! And because I can't leave out "my" beautiful brown Border Collie. Here's Briar. We run agility (and Penny will too!) and he is FAST.

    Beautiful photos! Vizslas are super popular on the west coast (Vancouver has a ton) and there's something very appealing about them but I can't quite put my finger on it!

    Welcome :)

    I used to train with several people who ran Vizslas in agility. Cool dogs, I've even considered them as my someday breed. :)

    Your girl and photography are gorgeous!

    A lady in my agility club has vizslas and does well with them! Her older gal has gone to nationals and I think has her silver award of merit now.

    Welcome! Your girl is very pretty. And Briar is adorable, too. :)

    No Vizslas here, but my Dobermans think Vs are the best haha. No idea why, but both of them (especially Ripley, my male) get so happy and playful and puppy like when we run into a Vizsla.

    YAY FOR A V! We seriously considered the breed for DH, but decided to go a little less intense to start with. So excited to see one on here though. Welcome!

    Gorgeous girl and stunning photography. Vizslas are fun dogs, there was a puppy in our obedience class a few years back. A lot of energy in a little puppy!

    I think I recognize your photography from TPF? I'm a lurker there :)

    Hey thanks for the love guys! My little V is definitely intense. She played ALL afternoon in the snow then had a 3hr romp with Briar& now she's looking at me like 'Why are you putting on PJs? I was just getting warmed up!!'

    And yup, I post occasionally on TPF. Mostly lurk though ..too many talented photogs for my work to really be worth showing! Hahah

    Neat!! A Vizsla on the forum! I'm honestly surprised you're our first Vizsla owner with how many I see around here but welcome!

    She's absolutely gorgeous, I adore how athletic Vizsla's look.

    GORGEOUS! You must post more pics of your beautiful pups. I loooveee brown BC's too. I've not yet had the chance to meet a Vizsla yet.

    Welcome!

    She's so pretty! We HAD a wirehaired vizsla here named Winnie....I'm not sure where her owner went to.

    I've worked with lots of them, they're awesome dogs.

    My parents have a 12 year old Vizsla. They are a lot of energy in a small package! My fiance has a red Border Collie as well. Your dogs are lovely and I look forward to seeing more of your photography.

    AllieMackie- very Cape Bretonese questions ;) Have you ever visited/ vacationed around here? I'm in the 'city', Sydney. Not a real city though ahah

    Saintgirl- Awesome!
