Keira has lovely movement (fabulous reach and drive and moves straight), gorgeous colour, dark eyes, and a very pretty head with a lively personality.  She is a natural backer in the field and is turning out to be a fabulous working dog in obedience and agility, exhibiting a tremendous desire to please just like her mom, Nekah, a Vizsla I just adored.   Plus, she's an incredibly happy dog with her tail wagging all the time!

Keira's got tremendous attitude and personality oozing out of her pores.  In fact, we say "she's more Nekah than Nekah!". Her attitude is very fun loving and highly energized.  She wags her entire backside rather than just her tail.  When she was little, I noticed that she and her sister wagged with their tails pointing down.  They did this because they were wagging their tails so fast!  To have their tails up and wagging would have resulted in far fewer wags per minute.  Because of her waggy bum, we nicknamed her "waggy-bumski".  Now, she's affectionately called "Keira Bumski". 

Keira loves to greet me with something in her mouth.  With her mouth full, she can't kiss me so instead, she and I rub noses! When I say, "nose" now, she'll rub my nose.

Keira was my first fully-trained "clicker" dog.  Clicker training is fun, very easy to learn and results in a "thinking" dog. I started off by clicking and giving her a treat every time she licked my face instead of biting it when she was an 8-week old puppy.  This quickly lessened her tendency to bite which all puppies do.  Then, I started reinforcing her stretch when she came out of her crate.  After adding a signal, this has turned into a "bow" command which Keira just loved to do.  After receiving a ribbon in the obedience ring, Keira bowed to the crowd and judge which always got smiles from the crowds. 

Keira became my first agility titled dog. She was so much better at it than I was at the time.
