    SIRE: CH MARCHWIND BOLT FROM THE BLUE                                     DAM: CH MARCHWIND ZENITH

          GEMMA is Nicole Griswold's first show dog.  She trained her, socialized her, did her homework and showed her herself.  She is pictured going BEST OF BREED OVER 6 SPECIALS for a 5 point major under Randy Garren.   That weekend Nicole won 11 points and 2 majors with Gemma. She finished with a BW, and 2 BOS.   Nicole is my ROOKIE OF THE YEAR as she will soon start her next Marchwind puppy.

    Violet has consistently displayed to us what an ideal Italian Greyhound should be with her beauty, elegance, movement, athletic ability, pedigree and wonderful temperament.  She started her show career in July 2014 when she was 10 months old and finished her Bronze Grand Championship in April 2016 with limited showing all owner handled, lure coursing, and a maternity break to have her first litter of puppies.  Violet has earned retirement from the show ring, but will continue to do what she loves most and work on more lure coursing titles.  Team Violet is just so proud of our girl!!!
