Who are we?

Michael and Sandra Stuart...met at a dog show in 1993.  Very quickly we became best friends and were married in 1996.  In the speech given by Michael's father at our wedding, he attested that for us, "...cupid came in the form of an Hungarian Vizsla, and another and another and another....." 
We couldn't agree more. 

Every spare moment is dedicated to our wonderful dogs and even a lot of moments which are not spare.  They give us a tremendous amount of joy and we are very proud of our mutual achievements.

We have been involved with Vizslas since 1993, and prior, Michael with another breed since 1982.
