  1. Now that's a gorgeous kuvasz! Love her wavy coat, dark eye and sparkling personality. Great job, Tezla!

  2. What a wonderful line up of BIS! I love that Maltese, being a Toy breeder myself. But I have to say, I got a chance to see the Kuvasz, Mattiaci High Voltage At Glacier Creek in person and what a beautiful bitch! She is a wonderful example of the Kuvasz breed and kudos to the judges that recognize her! And that Fire and Ice IWS, to die for! I also saw her in person last month, she is spectacular!!
