Gala made us proud by taking BOS under Sighthound Judge Lt.Col. Wallace Pede at the Greater Twin Cities Borzoi Club Specialty in June 2001. This was her first time back in the show ring after taking BOW to finish at this Specialty last year. Not to be outdone, her dam Ch Greyhaven Holly received an Award of Merit.

Gala finished the weekend in style by taking BOB under Judge James Mitchell in strong competition

Gala is our "party girl" who has lived up to all our expectations and more! She is the one I picked on the day she was born, and I have never changed my mind. Highlights of Gala's short show career are placing in the 6-9 Sweeps and regular classes at the Midwest Borzoi Club Specialty, the 9-12 Sweepstakes class at the Borzoi Club of America National Specialty and she was BOS in Sweeps at the Greater Twin Cities Borzoi Club Specialty in June 1999 under judge Kathy Wright. Gala took  BOW for her third Major (5 points) to finish at the Greater Twin Cities Borzoi Club Specialty on 6/9/00, under breeder judge Gwen Post. We are so proud of our first homebred Champion, especially since she was not yet 2 years old !

Look at her go! 
Gala took first place at the Minnesota Coursing Association LGRA 
trial in May 2001.
