Canadian Champion Piroska Sunfire of Abbiestar CGC ET


(Import Canada)



08 January 2001  -  26 November 2014 


Rippa was born on Vancouver Island at the renowned Piroska kennel of Barrie and Hilarie Brinkworth.

He was born, named and raised for us on Vancouver Island, attended many shows on the island and mainland,

achieved his Canadian Championship title and was ranked in Canada’s top ten show Vizslas at #9 for 2002.

In addition to this, he achieved a Canadian CGC (Canine Good Citizen) title.


At 11 months of age, he was sent from a freezing cold Canadian Winter to a scorching hot Melbourne Summer.

Rippa was shown here and earned many points towards his Australian Championship title,

and also obtained his Endurance Test title with ease.


He was the freest spirit and would not be contained. Constantly breaking out of crates and

effortlessly sailing in and out of an open window.


He sired many litters and produced numerous champions in Australia, the USA, Canada and New Zealand,

and to this day, he has produced more champions in more countries than any Vizsla imported into Australia.


His Champion progeny include:

Australian Champion Abbiestar Oriana ET (Australia’s # 1 Vizsla bitch 2004/05)
Dual Champion Abbiestar Caisse Depargne RA ET
American/Canadian Champion Abbiestar Piroska Storm CGN TT
Australian Champion Abbiestar Rolex
Australian Champion Abbiestar Legion of Honor
New Zealand Champion Abbiestar Socrates



More important to us than any of this, is that we had the most loving, loyal and faithful family member in Rippa.

He adored the children as they adored him.


He has brought us much success, joy, love and happiness and we miss him terribly.
