I've been behind on keeping this website updated and I apologize! For more current updates you can visit my FB page. I will be working on updates on each dogs page, as well are breeding plans. Check back frequently.
Martine Burton has been very busy with her boys! I'm extremely proud of everything she accomplishes with them. Always owner handled to all their titles!

What an absolutely amazing weekend! Wasn't able to make the drive to the BCOA National in WA but thanks to Monica Barry I got to watch footage from the national all week long. Got to spend lots of time with good friends, some I wish I could have spent more time with. My borzoi did pretty well against some very beautiful competition!
Saturday Brie (*CH* Starswift FV Aleutian Ballad JC CGC RN) finished her Championship under judge Thomas Kilcullen with a 5 point major over 13 other bitches.
Sunday at the MBC Specialty Castiel (Starswift Pride of His Legacy) was Best in Sweeps from the 6-9 month puppy dog class. The judge was Gale Snoddy.

4th Iris (Starswift Vision of His Legacy)

3rd Stardust (Teine Runtuff Suffregette City JC)
Monday under Jim Sillers, Never recieved his first major at just 7 months old, over adult competition with myself handling. Stardust was 2nd in Open.
Having 3 long time well respected borzoi breeder judges (Gale Snoddy, Karen Dumke, and Jim Sillers) compliment my dogs makes my heart just swell with pride. I can't stop smiling. I wish Lightning really could understand how proud I am of her, freedom and their puppies.
Ended the great 5 days show weekend with a BBQ at Francis 's house, joined by Jerrie Lee, Ameera, Kevin, Raphael, and Shawn.
Congrats again to all the winners. It was miserably hot Sunday and Monday but we all survived. I believe just about every day a different dog and/or bitch won. Now back to reality....

I haven't posted any updates in a while. Life has been busy with puppies, shows, work and life.
Last year I leased Georgia (Tsarytsin Georgia Peach) to Satara and Aria borzoi. They bred her to a half brother to the Stars and Stripes litter. She produced 10 puppies born on 12/14/2017. I visited twice to see them. Once when they were 9 wks and again at 12 wks to make my picks. I brought 2 boys home with me. One, Dallas, will be staying here. You can visit his page to see pictures.
This year I was going to take a break from the show ring but decided to bring Brie (Starswift FV Aleutian Ballad JC CGC RN) back to Starswift and show her.
Lola finished her CH in less than 2 months of showing. She finished July 9th going WB for her last point. She also finished the day with a Owner Handler Hound Group 1.
