"The image of sweetness personified - the only bad thing she ever did was to leave us."
Unlike her very naughty mother, Raisa was a dream to raise - never gave us a moment's difficulty as a puppy, trained immediately, listened when called - just incredibly biddable and sweet, gentle girl. We learned just how dramatically things can change in just one generation! Bruce came up with the name Raisa, and then we came up with her registered name. A pretty name for a pretty girl. Raisa had many nicknames (Raisa Bedaisa & Mrs. Gorbie for starters). She was the quintessential vizsla bitch. We were new and showed her when she was immature and way too young and took some hits; when she matured at age 2 years she finished quickly and easily and became our second homebred champion. Raisa's prowess in the field was fantastic - she never met a bird who liked her! Ripping a nipple off on barbed wire, Raisa never missed a beat. We feel so blessed to have had the honor of living with Raisa - she was quite amazing and passed her wonderful qualities on down.
