Sat.  May 26--BOB Class
Select Bitch----It was a thrill as we watched Mariah (Ch. Kachina-Valeska Wind Dancer, SC),
bred and owned by Carol Enz, take Select Bitch under judge Patti Neale, Sylvan Borzoi, at this national!
Mariah's parents are both Valeska-bred dogs. Her sire is Falco (Ch. Valeska Wilder Shores Of Love),
and her dam is Sorcha, (Ch. Valeska Afterglow). BIG congratulations to Carol Enz and Mariah,
who could have been in veterans but instead prevailed over so many beautiful young bitches on this day!
Mariah was beautifully handled by Wendy Finlayson, Mayvale Borzoi, New Zealand.
