TC Cariad's Kutya Kai Costa UD VC HOF was THE first AKC registered Vizsla to "serve" up official all-breed enthusiasts that the Vizsla was indeed, for real. The real truth of any breed or individual competition in field, show, obedience or agility comes in all-breed competition. "Kutya" was owned by Bob & Marianne Costa (now Megna) & bred by Marion Coffman & Linda Greenfield.

2003 VCA NAFC 2nd Series with Tink on point. What followed became known in Jan 2006 as the "Al Lucas Retrieving Rule". The next photo is Al sending Tink for a retrieve. Upon being sent for the retrieve, another bird flew up which Tink went to the area the bird landed to pick up & retrieve a dead bird that was in the spot the bird landed. Tink retrieved a bird who had died in a previous brace. The judges made the decision to throw Tink out for placement in the NAFC. That was THE wrong thing to do. Now the rule exists that "fetch" means "fetch" and if another bird flies up it is acceptable if the dog retrieves the new bird or stops to flush.
