After two years of cancelled shows due to Covid-19 it was amazing to be back in the ring at Crufts 2022.
We had an excellent day with Rory winning his class and his dad Dustin winning the DCC and Best of Breed!
Dustin (UK CH. Korsakov’s Radost Power Of Love Menigma, ShCM, ShCEx) has 21 CC’s, 17 BOB, 8 RCC’s, & 3 CACIB’s, with multiple group placements.
Alongside his recent Dog CC BOB Crufts winner 2022 he has also been awarded DOG CC Crufts winner 2019, UK Top Winning Borzoi 2018 & 2019-no 2020, not awarded in England due to Covid and again in 2021.
Dustin has been busy siring some beautiful puppies and we were fortunate to bring home one of our own, Rory (Ryazan Viceroy of Radost at Menigma) who is also co-owned by Lynda Cattoni Sarman (USA).
Our last show before the Virus was CRUFTS 2020. We are very excited to say we were awarded the DOG CC with JJ. Judged by breed specialist Mrs Chris Mayers who we can never thank enough, expertly handled by Katie our daughter.
A little about us. We live in the South West of England on the edge of Exeter, Devon. I have kept dogs as pets all my life starting with German Shephards.
I met my first Borzoi in 1975 and fell in love with the breed. In 1990 I was lucky to be given my first Borzoi "Spider" by Chris and Colin Mayers, Tcheria Borzoi. In 1991 I met my husband John who's only experience of dogs was the farm labs he grew up with, so I quickly introduced him to the world of Borzoi and showing, early mornings, long distances & missing Grand Prix etc.
We currently have 5 Borzoi and 2 Dachshunds and am pleased to so after many years of learning the Breed we have been lucky enough to experience great success with our one and only Ch. Datcha Payatz at Menigma "Jester". Quickly followed by his kennel mate Chance (Ch. Almanor Take A Chance at Menigma).
