Another multi-talented Borzoi at Firebird, Hartly, aka v. raptor, is a beloved addition.  So many thanks to Susan and Sandy, her breeders, for allowing her to come and live here.  Hartly has a wonderful, unique personality that I just love.  She has a gorgeous head, good movement all around, and stunning presence (she knows she is the prettiest!).  She finished her Rally Novice degree at Sammamish Kennel Club on 28 August 2005 with scores of 75, 90, and 91.  She also finished her RA with 89, 90, and a 73; a first and a second placement.  Hartly went to the rainbow bridge on 14 October 2008, due to radial paralysis.  I sorely miss her.
Hartly being the "prettiest" at the Puget Sound Specialty in August of 2005, where she placed third in a large competitive open bitch class under Amy Sorbie, Kirov.
