Chelsea finished with four majors, and a Specialty Best in Sweeps at BCGNY in an entry of 74, a number that has never been topped. She was a multiple BOB winner, every time over Group-winning male specials.
Chani graced our lives for almost 13 years and was a real favorite here. She was inducted into the Borzoi Club of America's Versatility Hall of Fame in 1997 for her accomplishments in the conformation ring, the obedience ring and on the lure coursing field.
Chevy was a Specialty Best in Sweepstakes winner who finished with four majors and several Breed wins from Bred-By class by the time he was 14 months old, making him the first homebred Sylvan Champion. He earned his CD with a class placement and placed in the Hound group.
China completed her Championship by going BOB over four Specials with a four point entry in both sexes. She was shown as half of a successful brace with her sister Chana at several Specialties and was co-owned with Stephanie Bryan.
