Our hearts are breaking over the sudden and unexpected passing of Tango.

Not only did Tango finish his ASFA Field Championship on October 10th, on Sunday, the 11th he was first place in his class of Field Champions! 

Tango goes lure coursing for the first time!

Doesn't he look like a talk show host?

We had been considering a second breed for a long time when we were introduced to an Ibizan (pronounced ĭ-bee-than) Hound, named
Bunny (BIS BISS Luxor's Playmate of the Year).  It was love at first sight!  Years later, hoping for a Bunny puppy that didn't materialize, we contacted
Lisa Puskas, Paradise Ibizan Hounds, for a pup.  The next week Tango flew in!  Thank you Lisa for trusting this gorgeous 'little' man to us!
