Talking My Gift From Italy - Tizzy

As some of you may know I own and show 2 American Show line girls but I have a deep appreciation for other styles. Also, health is a huge focus for me and genetic diversity is a very good thing.

It is with these ideas in mind that I have been carefully and quietly building relationships with breeders I respect who have lines that I would love to work with over that last few years. I am proud to say that several of these breeders who have never sent a dog the US or only very rarely have considered me as a potential future home for a Show puppy.

A few months ago a very exciting litter was announced and I was giving the amazing opportunity to have a top pick show girl from a great breeder in Italy. So, we started making plans to go. I was fortunate that my father was able to come with and we visited Pompeii, Florence and Lecco (lake Como) before picking up our precious cargo and returning to the US. It was a truly amazing adventure and a once in a lifetime trip.


So, with out further ado, welcome Rizonhills My Country Tis of Thee. Commonly known as Tizzy.
Pedigree: Rizonhills My Country Tis of Thee

She was such a good girl, taking an 8.5 hour transatlantic flight, going through customs, and then another 5.5 hour flight before making it to Arizona. As you can imagine, a very long day. She did not make a mess on either flight (though we were prepared) and made hardly a sound. In fact disembarking from the huge transatlaic plane several of the forward cabin attendants remarked that they did not know there was a puppy on the flight until they could see me carrying her out.

Carina . Congratulations. Best souvenir ever!!! Sounds like a wonderful trip. By chance did you get to Varenna on Lake Come? One of my favorite places. Enjoy

No, we only got a chance to see Lecco. Tizzy's breeder lives near there so we stayed in that area. They were lovely and acted as a tour guide sharing the best local spots with us. It is not generally a tourist spot but it was lovely and a nice change of pace from Florence's masses of people.
