3 years & 70,000 visits to redbirddog

This really cool Vizsla blueprint  from the Animal Blueprint Company

Friday, June 8, 2009 I posted my first post after a field trial in the desert north of Reno, NV.
Picture on our first post   
Three years later we are still here.  Bailey and Chloe are getting older and so am I.  We have logged well over 5,000 miles of hiking over the last 36 months and have had many adventures.  What a great ride these dogs have taken me on.   We have met hundreds of wonderful dogs and people over the last three years in person or over the wonderful tool called the internet.

We are honored to have fellow Vizsla Owners from around the world follow our exploits.  Here is a list of visits over the last year from a few different countries:

 United States (US)23,335
 United Kingdom (GB)2,663
 Canada (CA)1,886
 Australia (AU)546
 Germany (DE)279
 Netherlands (NL)177
 India (IN)160
 Hungary (HU)157
 Belgium (BE)154
 New Zealand (NZ)152
 Philippines (PH)122
 Ireland (IE)120
 Slovenia (SI)119
 Italy (IT)99
 Romania (RO)92
 France (FR)86
 Greece (GR)82
 South Africa (ZA)73
 Sweden (SE)63
 Brazil (BR)61
 Czech Republic (CZ)61
 Mexico (MX)59
 Serbia (RS)58
 Argentina (AR)57
 Turkey (TR)57
 Poland (PL)53
 Spain (ES)51

The Vizsla is truly a world-class dog.  Bailey just placed a tennis ball next to my right arm.  He wants me to throw it up so he can catch it in the air.  What a blockhead.  Chloe is outside barking at a squirrel in a tree.  Darn squirrels anyway.  She has just busted back through the dog door to attack and wrestle with her brother. Why?  Who knows.  She loves him, that is one thing I know.  They make us happy that they are part of our lives.  We are happy to share with others our joys and sometimes sorrows.

Happy trails and trials. 

 Life is not measured by the breaths you take but by the moments that take your breath away.

Happy blog-iversary! I don't comment as much as I should, but I read every post. I'm so insanely jealous of all the wonderful adventures you get to have with your pups.
