Tribute to Great Grandma (B) - Madison III


Mrs. Madison III was born on December 21, 1997 to parents Buster Keeton and Allie.

Called Madi for short, this little girl lived happily with her adopted parents Pam and Mark Spurgeon, in Belvidere, Illinois. Inspired by her beauty and natural skill, they started her in competition which led to breeding and finally a business name, Crimson Sky Vizslas.

**If we ever get another vizsla, I would consider getting one from there. They describe Madison III with such love. They have many pictures of her, describe her personality, I get so much more from their website than many others! I have just fallen in love with this family and their beautiful V's.

Now, for Mrs. Madison III's AKC Information:
Madison III SH CGC
SN503415/01 10-00
Golden Rust

This little girl was a SENIOR HUNTER! (AKC says this means qualifying scores at 5 licensed or member tests).

She got her Canine Good Citizenship (CGC) This didn't show on her AKC pedigree, but I think it is wonderful. I have known since before we got Oso that that is a goal for him!

And she has excellent hips! Go Madi!!

And now, let's hear a bit about Madi from the Spurgeons....

"Madi was our foundation bitch and the start of Crimson Sky Vizslas. Ruger and Ariel are her pups. They are full siblings, but not littermates. Madi was our "Queen" and lived the life of royalty! She was the one who got us started with these red dogs. Madison was originally just a companion and casual hunting dog, but turned into much more. Madison's fantastic bloodlines and the help of other vizsla owners soon taught us that these dogs are not just any dog. Her sire was Buster Keeton and her dam was an Askim bitch named Allie. We started competing as way to learn more and spend more time in the field enjoying our dog. We were then quickly hooked by Jim Busch and started enjoying many weekends at dog competitions with good friends who also loved vizslas. Madison was the best hunting dog anyone could want. Her desire and drive would keep you hunting all day long. She had an excellent nose, soft mouth and tremendous stamina. Madison always retrieved wounded birds to hand and never gave up looking for the hard to find ones. Madi learned many tricks and even leanred to retrieve beer from the cooler for Mark.

We will forever miss our Madi

Rest in Peace Madison III

In addition to Oso's Grandpa, Madison III had two other puppies whom continued to breed and stay in the family. One is Ariel, who is supposedly laid back and easy going and the other is Ruger who is the highest nationally titled Vizsla in history.

Now, let's go ahead and see who created the beautiful Ms. Madison III

**And just as a reminder, Mrs. Madison III paired up with Mr. Raany to make Shiloh's Rommel Blitzkrieg who paired up with Shiloh's Happy Go Lucky to make Oso's birth daddy - Union Jack!
