"Val" was the foundation of the breeding program here at Horse And Hound and reigned unchallenged as the Queen of all she surveyed.  Her ability as a brood bitch is unquestioned, having produced the "Irish Litter" when bred to CH. Kyrov-Lereau Dream Machine, the "French Litter" when bred to CH. Sylvan Scotch And Soda JC, and the "Italian Litter" when bred to "CH. Radost White Rock".  These breedings have produced a Dual Champion, several Grand Champions, Champions and Coursing winners, with more point earners accomplishing new titles every day!

It's a great thrill to announce the continued excellence and versatility shown by the Scotty x Val daughter, CGH. Horse And Hound Bretagne at Scheremetjew, as she became an AKC Field Champion, and thus a DUAL CHAMPION on August 19, 2012 (the youngest Borzoi to become both a Grand Champion and a Dual Champion as of that date)!  Under the love and guidance of owners, Karin Johnson and Julia Johnson, MD, "Jolie" continues to shine in all types of competition, and I couldn't be more proud!  Heartfelt Congratulations to Team Jolie!
