Perhaps we are slow learners, but every dog has taught important lessons. This page is dedicated to those wonderful animals who brought us such joy in knowing them, and such sorrow when it was their time to go.
Askim for Tequila Sophia "Sophie"
Rockwoods Kivalo Maverick "Mojo" UT P1 NA P1
Mojo was Matts dog from day 1, coming from Rockwood Kennels, the first UT P1 male and female crossing in the Vizsla breed. Mojo passed away far too early, but gave us many wonderful memories.
Smoothbore Vizslas - our lost friends
Kivalos Straitshootnsmoothbore NA P1 "Caesar"
Sophie came into our lives July 2001. The last pick and runt of the litter, Sophie had an over sized heart and spirit. We had the pleasure of knowing her 11 years, and laid her to rest in 2012. RIP my old girl.
Savvy had two litters for us, with our first litter earning NAVHDA breeders awards for NA and Utility. She passed away too early the spring of 2020 at the age of 8. She was my go to grouse dog, best mom ever, a truly loving companion.
Smoothbores Savvy Totem "Savvy" UT P1, NA P1
Wall Canyons Desatoya Dreams "Jasper" UT P1, NA P1
Jasper had an old world head, and an old world work ethic. He loved duck hunting so much he would drive Matt crazy with his antics - but never failed to bring back a bird.
VC Rockwoods Kivalo Supertramp "Karma" UT P1 3x, NA P1
Karma made history as the first female Vizsla to earn NAVHDAs top award - Versatile Champion. Also from Rockwood Kennels Baraboo, sister to Mojo. With attitude to burn, Karma would light up any room or day afield.
Caesar came to us from Bill Gurney . He was a sweet guy that loved his upland hunting. We lost him too soon, but treasure the memories he gave us, especially on our last hunt.
