Aziza finally got to try lure coursing for the first time and she had a blast! I put her in singles for 2 days as practice and you could see her confidence bloom. She got 3rd in an entry of 11 day one and 1st/Best in Singles on day 2. She also QC'd. I'm waiting to see if anyone shares pictures.
It's fun to have logo art to represent all of our hounds, past, present, and future and unite them despite different backgrounds. As our pack has thinned and grown we have clearly shifted more to Ibizan Hounds. We still love Greyhounds but it was time for a second design to tie in with the direction we are going. We LOVE it! It represents both smooth and wire, and features half-brothers Nova and Finnegan

Aziza makes her debut as a royal Hound of East Fairhaven
Aziza made her debut as a royal hound with our group, The Hounds of East Fairhaven, at the Georgia Renaissance Festival. Our group is an educational reenactment group that is on cast and part of the entertainment at 3 festivals. We are breed ambassadors and spend time teaching history and all about the breeds that we represent. A dog has to be rock solid in temperament to be successful at festival. They encounter literally thousands of people of all ages, ethnicities, dog experience, and sizes as well as cannons, explosions, whip snapping, fire events, camels, horses, sword fighting, chariots, crazy costumes, wheelchairs and other assistive devices, other dogs, and other crazy things for hours on end. I am so incredibly proud of how confident, curious, enthusiastic, sweet, playful, and all around wonderful she was. People could not believe how young she is because she was so well-mannered. She even fell asleep in the lap of a countess that she had just met and watched one of the jousts calmly. She did the overnight in the hotel well, also, and made best friends with a Borzoi. She's 16 weeks old.
