BCOA 2009

Judged by Mrs Patricia Ulloa (Regular Classes)

and Ms. Katrina Averill (Sweepstakes)

in Frankenmuth, MI


At this National, I convinced Suzan Breaz to attend so that she and I could show case what we have done together.  I think it was well worth the time and effort!  Our entry which was predominately Camille and her get sired by a Mozart son.

co-owned by Suzan Breaz and myself

Award of Merit

This was the first time Camille has been shown since I finished her at 15 months old.

Humm.. Suzan, should we have been doing something differently?  Like maybe showing her?


Actually, Camille has been doing a great job for Suzan & I raising 2 small litters.

See the Co-Bred with Twin Elms pages.


Camille's puppies did pretty well, too!

Twin Elms SVershin Navariy

By Twin Elms Nikita Of Elza X Ch. Tzirina Camille SVershin


Navare was 2nd in both his Sweeps class and in the Regular 12-18 month old class.


Twin Elms SVershin Nonna

By Twin Elms Nikita Of Elza X Ch. Tzirina Camille SVershin


Nonna placed 4th in a very competitive 12-18 month old bitch class.



I think you can see from the movement photos of Nonna and Navare, they both have the open and

free movement many of Mozart kids and grand kids have shown.  And, you'll see it also on litter sister Nisha below.

While Nisha did not place, she was in the final cuts.

Suzan was pleased with even that because this was the first time she'd ever been shown.

I think you can see what a quality young bitch she presents.  The whole litter showed consistently beautiful angulation both front and rear, beautiful type, movement and coat.



Ch. Twin Elms Barinya FCh.

by Ch. Ziminstraija Mozart Play for SV'shin FCh. JC. ROM-C

and out of Ch. Twin Elm's Jarrah


Suzan showed Barinya for Best of Breed.  She did not get a ribbon, but was in all the cuts down to the very end.  This girl is one of my favorite of the Mozart daughters.  Actually, she is one of my favorite borzoi in general; beauty, substance, movement.  I mean she is the whole package.  Please see about the litter Barinya has given us on the Ariel and Rane page.


The show grounds at the Bavarian Inn Lodge at Frankenmuth, MI was beautiful.  Off the walkout door we were lucky enough to get on our room, we set up a small yard with X-pens.  Below are the show rings and tents.  Just beyond that is the Cass River.  On the Cass is a steamboat tour you can take up and down the river through Frankenmuth.  It was quite charming.  It was really an enjoyable vacation.
