This section is my latest brainstorm. I dreamed it up when I found myself NOT doing what I was supposed to be doing because I could NOT pull myself out of one of those wonderful websites. To land here means you passed "QOL" (Quite Old Ladies). This section reflects those websites that I like, that I want to share with others. They may or may not even have anything directly to do with dogs, let alone Vizslas. The website owner/subject may or may not have any scruples or even present accurate information. I just like their websites or their story or their talent. That's all there is to it......dlb
youtube.com has grown in leaps AND bounds. You can get lost here for weeks & get absolutely nothing done....just by boggling the word "vizsla" when you get to the you tube home page. And don't you dare go off on any tangents. Or soon your family will be doing pc intervention. If you are looking for individualistic videos go to youtube. Then search for "ssmudsville" and go to the movies. A 2011 project is to make a home-movie about the Mayor of Mudsville.
books.google.com is THE website for the voracious or discerning reader. If you go to the bookgoogle & type in the word "vizsla", it will give you MANY books that have that word in them. For example look at the below list of novels that use the word "Vizsla" in them. Then purchase those books from online book stores. Many can be found for a relatively small investment & relevant interest, regardless of publication date.

http://www.strideaway.com/ is an online ever growing, always changing resource for Field Trial enthusiasts, primarily Field Dog Stud Book Field Trialers, but with an extra focus on those wonderfully electric Pointers & Setters who compete to compete in the grandest of Nationals at the Ames Plantation in Tennessee every mid-February. Mazie Davis & Chris Mathan (long time FDSB FTers) bring to life in brilliant picture & prose..... an intricately interwoven bird dog tapestry. Chris Mathan's accompanying personal website is sportsmenscabinet.com. She has a beautiful eye.
http://fosteraward.com/ is Purina's website for the Cover dogs (grouse FTers). The award is named after William Harnden Foster. Foster was born in 1886. Early on his interest in sporting events was quite keen. He is credited with helping "create" skeet shooting & is in the Skeet HOF. Field Trial Hall Of Fame reporter William Bruette noted, "Mr. Foster's interest in the New England Field trials was constant & primarily directed to the introduction of a higher class concept of the working grouse dog."
The Foster Award website is not strong on design, but it is the glorious writings & thoughts of the true swordsmen of the Cover Dog Field Trialers that make this website what it is. Simply wonderful. I eagerly await more writings. On Essays on the Edge, several authors slice into pieces that age-old fable (Galton's Law) that breeding to the same level causes breeding to regress as NOT TRUE and explains why. Accompanying information illuminates the times when purebred dog ownership burst into prominence & provides readers with much food for thought about those who espouse "FT eugenics" and filial regression.
http://juliebender.com/artwork.html This website needs only three words to describe it "totally freaking awesome". Julie is a Vizsla owner who does pyrographics for a living. Her artistic talent is on display in many museums & top private collections. COWBOYS & INDIANS did a blurb on her in a 2009 issue. Julie is active in show & field with her Vizslas. Her next goal is a Dual Champion. As lovely as many of the examples of Julie's work, I rather like her pyro Vizslas the best. Julie is a high class act & her website finds it appealing to me not because from website design, but what showcases what her talent really is.
Julie represents her artwork in the very prestigious Southeastern Wildlife Exposition the middle of February 2010 in historic Charleston, South Carolina and the end of February in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the NatureWorks Art Sale.
Julie's "On The Alert" which is a lonely coyote sentinel is currently touring in the 49th Annual Art & Animal Exposition and National Tour in the following cities.
http://agatelady.com/ At first one might think the Vizsla has nothing to do with the agate. That's true. What is also true is that the hunting dog (like the agate) is the oldest of its species. The Lake Superior agate is the oldest of the agates. So too, may well be the Vizsla who is the oldest of the hunting dogs.
This website composes the private and public collections & lifetime investments of Vizslak peoples around the world with an initial focus on the USA & the field because that is the information SITmUP has processed....so far. Please "respect" our collective work on thevizslaksentinel.com and do not use in an unexpected way.
The individual collections form the cornerstones of every Vizsla living and owned
by "you" today. If respected by the readers, the information on
this website will remain & grow.
