1998: Jill sent us information on clubs, shows, and this picture of her dog. She can be reached at Tierahtoo@aol.com
Jill got her first Vizsla through the"Dog World" magazine puppy placement program in 1979. "Rosie" very quickly moved in and took over the household, and week end camping trips turned into 4-5 hour drives to Tacoma and Seattle for dog shows. 11 months, an OFA, and, 24,000 miles later,"Rosie" finished her championship with 14 year old Jill in tow.
Jill's parent breathed a sigh of relief, because now Jill wanted to breed "Rosie" which meant they would get four months to relax from the show circuit. Boy were they surprised....and the name "Tierah Vizslas" was born. In 1987 Jill married Paul Markham and added the Rottweilers ("Rotten dogs") to the managerie.

Rotkopf's Lord Sean Royal x AM Can Ch Vizsta's Myya V Exodus "Baron" was from the last litter bred by Beryl K Taylor. He finished his American championship with three majors, two won on the west coast, and one on the eastern seaboard. He finished his International and German championships in 3 consecutive shows, and the Canadian championship in less then one month. He was the first Vizsla registered with the Phillipine Canine Club, and to our knowledge, he was the first American bred Vizsla to finish his German Welt-schon sieger (WSCH).
