Pedigree

The top-winning breeder-owner-handled bitch in breed history.

The Number 1 Borzoi in All-Breed competition in 2002, 2003 and 2004.

The Number 1 Borzoi in Breed competition in 2003 and 2004.

Her record in the show ring - always breeder-owner handled - is breathtaking:

Lacey enjoyed the plaudits of judges ever since her debut.  She was Specialty Best In Sweeps under breeder-judge Barbara Skinner at the Midwest Borzoi Club Chicago Specialty in December, 1998 and again went Best in Sweeps at the 1999 BCOA National Specialty in Denver.  Lacey capped that by going Winners Bitch and Award of Merit to finish at the 2000 BCOA National Specialty in Portland under breeder-judge Christina Rafton.   All her points - including three 5-point majors - were from the Bred By Exhibitor class.

In her last four shows in 2004 she had three Group 1's and a Group 2 while pregnant.  In her final all-breed show, as a veteran, she got a Group 3.  In her very last show, 8-year-old Lacey came off the sofa to win the 2006 National Specialty from the Veteran Bitch class under Espen Engh.

From her breeding to Titan, on December 27, 2004 Lacey added motherhood to her accomplishments, giving us a beautiful litter of six vigorous boys and one lovely girl.

Her morning was silver, her noontime golden and her evening bronze.  But they were all solid and each was polished until it shone after its fashion.

Lacey was our heart.  She was magic.
