Got you Marilyn

There has been a blonde bunny at bunny central for the last 6 months and try as we might we have not been able to nail her. It's odd, as we usually nail blondes on the first night!  ROFL But Marilyn had thus far evaded us. We had tried with the bow and got close, but missed. We had tried with the little HMR but been busted several times before we could even shoulder the rifle. But today, we snuck up to bunny central and dropped in to say hi to Marilyn impromptu. 

She was caught unawares as we snuck up on her through the thick ti tree. She was out in the open, about 15 metres from the nearest cover which was some more Ti tree. As we snuck out from our cover, she spotted us and made a bolt to our left slightly down the hill trying to get to a burrow underneath the Ti tree. I shouldered the old SxS, clicked the safety forwards, checked to make sure the pups hadn't broken point and unleashed a dirty old Federal #4 load on her......

  1. Hi there, great blog you have here!

    I was referred to it by one of our fellow Vizsla lovers on the forums. I'm just wondering if you could tell me something, seeing as you're a fellow Melburnian? Namely, I know being the amazing dogs that they are, that I can expect to pay a pretty hefty price for a pup, but do you happen to know a ballpark range for how much a Vizsla pup might be? I just would like to have an idea of what kind of money I'm up for, you know what I mean?

    Thanks in Advance! :D

  2. Hi Jess. An average investment for a Vizsla is about $1600. Just make sure you do you research in Vizslas before heading down that path. They are a lot of work and not the sort of pup that can be left alone in a back yard by themselves. They thrive on human interaction, but become destructive if they are not met with a good long physical and mental challenge daily.

    Best of luck.
