July 2014 RSVC Newsletter

 The July 2014 RSVC Newsletter is available here.

 Archived copies of past newsletters can be found here.

Please enjoy the July issue of the Rio Salado Vizsla Club Newsletter. This month's edition features several interesting articles including xylitol toxicity in dogs, the art of good sportsmanship, an introduction to the Wirehaired Vizsla, a review of the VCA's Field Versatility Test, and a very funny article on what your dog would text you if he/she could! The Newsletter also includes the results of the CGC tests administered in May, the results of our Specialty in June, and a write up of the RSVC Awards Banquet and Silent Auction. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this month's Newsletter, including those of you who submitted photos and brags for "That's My Vizsla" and "Brags and Cries."
    Please send in your submissions to "That's My Vizsla" and "Brags and Cries" at any time. The deadline for the next newsletter is October 20th, 2014. If you take photos at an RSVC event, please consider emailing them to me at for inclusion in an upcoming issue. Suggestions for articles are always welcome.
