September 24th, International LC trial, Hvam, Norway

Ch. Mesmerizing Made In Heaven "Izzie" ended her wonderful lure coursing career at the International LC-trial (the largest trial in Norwegian coursing history!) in Hvam today by winning 1st place at 8,5 years of age!!!

 

Izzie started out her coursing career with a bang, winning the gold medal at the European Coursing Championship in the Netherlands in 2011, at two years of age, just a week after she became a World Winner in the show ring. She later became the very first (and is still the only) Pharaoh Hound to become a LC Champion in all the Nordic Countries (Norway, Sweden, Denmark & Finland)! From her first litter, I kept three puppies - Storm, Penny & Sansa - all of whom have won the gold medal at European Coursing Championships - in Finland 2015, Slovakia 2016 and Switzerland 2017, respectively. Now we can't wait to see how her second litter will do on the fields when they are old enough. Izzie - you are amazing!🌟

 

Izzie's daughter Ch. Bazinga A Game Of Thrones "Penny" finished in 2nd place with another Norwegian LC CC!
