We had to say goodbye to our beautiful Tamar. We miss her so much, but know she is running free now in heaven and will always hold a large part of our hearts.
4-12-14 Tamar at 11 years old went to the Grand Island shows and not only won BOB both days over a Top 10 Special, but she also won a Group 2! She has always been such a nice mover.

Tamar is currently in the Top 10 All Breed Borzoi in just one show!! PLUS she is also in the LGRA Top 10 !! AND on top of that huge accomplishment, she is also in the LGRA LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT TOP 10 !! At 6 years old, she's still very FAST and PRETTY!!
Tamar's puppies are sired by Kyrov's Confection. Glaze is sired by Valmont - CH Kyrov's Fanfare Of The Wild Hunt (CH Kyrov's Crescendo x CH Pompeii Of The Wild Hunt, FCh, SC) and his Dam is Tia - CH Windlord's Effervescence of Kyrov (CH Chataqua Desert Phoenix Of Kyrov x CH Windlord's Zolota).

At five years of age, and after whelping her litter three months ago, Tamar came back strong and won her last two points she needed for her SGRC title!! We're so proud of her!!!
Yes - she is very bald after having her litter of puppies, but came back strong for her last two points for her SGRC title!!
Tamar is a very versatile dog that has done everything we've ever asked of her with ease. So far, she's completed her AKC Championship with three majors - the last major being a five pointer at a very large specialty where she took a Best of Winners. She has multiple group wins and placements. She is also an AKC Senior Courser, ASFA Field Champion, Superior Gazehound Racing Champion, major pointed on her AKC Field Championship with a Best In Field and has her first leg in obedience. She has also been a 4-H dog for my 10 year old son for the past 3 years and competes in everything from showmanship to agility!! In her spare time, she likes to visit a care center for therapy work. We are hoping she will pass some of this enthusiasm on to her puppies!!
During the Specialty weekend in Waconia, MN, Tamar took Best of Breed, defeating 28 Borzoi for that honor and then went on to take another Group 3 in very tough competition against many top 5 hounds. A big thanks to judge Mr. Gary Doerge!!

Tamar is very prey driven and Straight Races and Lure Courses, but yet she is very gentle also. In the following picture Tamar makes a great pillow when getting a 4 week old Newfoundland puppy to sleep. Tamar also lives with 2 cats and four children and has been a 4-H dog for the past three years. Her temprament is unbelievable and she will bend over backwards (literally) to please you!
Tamar attended the ASFA II International Invitational on June 5th & 6th!! We had the great priviledge of meeting and watching some of the top coursing Borzoi, both National and International. To see them run the courses was truly breath taking!
On Saturday, Tamar finished in 3rd place with a score of 283; the top dogs score was 286!
On Sunday, Tamar finished 5th place and was NBQ with a score of 299; the top dogs score was 302!
Tamar was also the highest scoring bench champion both days!!

TAMAR TAKES BEST OF BREED STRAIGHT RACING AT THE BORZOI NATIONALS 2004 from an entry of 59!!! She also won High Score Lure Coursing and High Score Conformation Champion!! Sunday results ASFA Lure Coursing at the Nationals - After two called coursing runs due to a false start by a dog and another losing a racing blanket in the second run, a tired Tamar still had enough energy to complete the course with a first place in her stake, and score high enough to finish 2nd place out of 39 Field Champions. There was only a 1 point difference between 1st place and 2nd place. Tamar also earned 30 points towards her LCM!!! During the Saturday Best of Breed competition, Tamar made it all the way to the final cut, when the last two were excused before the final decision was made. This girl has made us very proud this weekend!!
Tamar finished her AKC confirmation championship at the Rocky Mountain Borzoi Specialty. She won Best of Winners for a 5 point major, making it her 3rd major, and defeating over 75 other Borzoi. Tamar is a dream to show and makes it easy for the person on the other end of her lead.
Tamar definitely posseses the "show attitude" and loves to be in the ring. She is very light on her feet and her movement is flawless. Her down and back is very clean, with no wasted movement. Tamar has very strong prey drive, and excells in coursing and racing competitions. She has already completed her AKC Senior Courser title, ASFA Field Championship, LGRA Gazehound Racing Championship and has a Best in Field and 5 point major towards her AKC Lure Coursing Championship. We can now add her Best of Breed straight racing at the Borzoi Nationals 2004, her Group Win and her Group Placement to her long list of accomplishments.
We are so thankful to Cindi Gredys of Jubilee Borzoi for this beautiful girl. It's not often that you find a complete dog that not only has the beauty to compete in the show ring, but can also excell in what it was bred to do. We feel we have that special dog in Tamar, the elegance and beauty balanced with the keeness of the huntress.
Tamar's hips are OFA Excellent, her heart is Cardiologist - Normal and her CERF Eye Exam was also Normal.
Tamar takes Best Of Breed at the Greeley, Colorado show - the weekend of the RMBC Specialty, defeating 22 other Borzoi for that honor!! Her brother, Neo, CH Jubilee's Breath of Life, CD, JC took Best Of Opposite Sex!!
