Vizsla Flashback with addendum - Seriously Mother Nature?

Hi.  Welcome to Flashback Sunday, the day of the week when we typically reprint an old column in a crass attempt to do as little as possible with the day.

However, it's also Mothers Day, which led me to think that it would be nice to reprint some Mother-related column from the past, thereby checking both boxes.

Unfortunately, a search of the site has led me to discover that I've never actually written about Mothers, which puts an unfortunate hitch in my giddy-up.

In fact, the following column seems to be the only one that even features the word Mother in the title.  This is obviously a serious oversight and shall be corrected.  On another day.  For now however we're rolling with this one from April 2013, since it does at least mention the word 'Mother' and the weather has been equally ass this year is it was then, so the point still stands.

Plus some fun facts about Hungary!

Happy Mothers Day, world.


Seriously, Mother Nature?

Note:  As I type this (which is harder than you might imagine, in that I have no opposable thumbs thank you very much) it is currently snowing.  6-10 inches.  On April 19th: A day in which your average domestic breed might expect sunny weather and possibly bunnies to chase.

Now, as a sporting breed I actually like snow.  Plus I'm Hungarian, which means that I'm totally down with both  A: being cold for most of the year, and B: being  intermittently invaded from either side.

But still... SERIOUSLY?

And while we're talking about Hungary-  Were you aware that ownership of a Vizsla in Hungary was at one time a sign of being nobility?

Which is all very flattering and all that... until the revolution comes and the peasants rise up.  You know what happens then?   Nothing good for the Vizlsas, that's what!

Which is just my roundabout way of saying- haven't we, the Vizslas suffered enough?

Knock it off already!

Vizsla out.
