Nekah was the first Vizsla puppy we ever owned (our other two Vizslas were older when we brought them home) as well as our first female.  She was also my first owner-handled champion both in Canada and the US.  She was extremely pretty with a gorgeous head, loving and a wonderful dog as well as fantastic dam to her pups.  Her propensity to shower faces with kisses carries through to most of her kids, all of whom have fantastic temperaments. Sadly, a bright light went out in my life on June 7, 1999 when I lost my beloved Nekah to cancer.  

Nekah was bred 4 times to the following dogs:  

Can/Am CH Kezdet's Adrian Buster Can/Am CD CGC
(OFA Good) which produced 6 pups on Dec. 31, 1992.  Two males, Sasha & Jazz, from this litter were Can. & Am Champions and held obedience, field, and Canine Good Citizen titles.  Jazz was also a certified therapy dog. This litter produced 1 group winner.

  • BPIG Am/Can CH Varazs Kiraly Sassy Sasha Am/Can CD, Am/Can CDX, FDJ, RN, RA, RE, RAE, TT, CGC, CGN "Sasha"
  • Am/Can CH Varazs New Year's Eve Jazzsong, Am/Can CD TT CGC & Delta Therapy Dog "Jazz"
Can/Am CH Harann Envoy to Earnescliffe (OFA Good) which produced 6 puppies (4 boys, 2 girls) on August 22, 1995. One female, Zuzu, finished her CH and, a male, Jester, earned 8 points before, unfortunately, being neutered.
  • CH Varazs Midsummer's Night Dream "Zuzu"
  • Varazs Starbuck's Moka Java TT "Jester"

Am CH Emerald Legacy's Prime Time SH (OFA Good) which produced 5 puppies (4 girls, 1 boy) on June 5, 1997. This was an accomplished and beautiful litter with four pups (Abby, Keira, Rex, Tasha)  finishing their Can. Championships; three of them are group-placing dogs or best puppy in group winners.  One earned both Cdn & Am Companion Dog Excellent (CDX) titles and another her Jr. Field Dog title. Sadly, it was also riddled with cancer and for whatever reason which I will never know, most of these puppies died at too young an age from various types of cancer.

  • BPIG Can/Am CH Varazs Abracadabra TT "Abby"
  • CH Varazs Nekah's Gold Edition Am/Can CD, Am/Can CDX, AGN, NA, NAJ, TT "Keira"
  • BIPG CH Varazs Blackbullets onthe Wing "Rex"
  • BPIG CH Varazs Kincses Natasha FDJ "Tasha"
  • Varazs Chloe's Spring Cantata "Chloe"
Am CH Legacy's Rhythm N Blues (OFA Excellent) resulted in 4 puppies (2 females, 2 males) born February 2, 1998. Amber completed her Cdn Championship and was a group-placing bitch. This was for 3 of the 4 puppies, a long-lived litter; go figure.
  • BPIG CH Varazs On Point at Blackbullet "Amber"
  • Varazs Betyar Otis "Otis"
  • Varazs Bartok Bluebeardscastle "Bartok"
  • Varazs Everlasting Rose TT  "Rosie"
