Dog of The Month
April 2014
             















       Filson (Anderson's Wild Wing Citori

Meet Filson! Why is he all dressed up in a costume? Well, Filson was
asked to be a calendar dog for a photo shoot to benefit the Tri-cities
Opera in Binghamton, NY. Proceeds from the calendar not only
support the performing arts but also local pet rescue agencies.
Filson is portraying the Russian Prince Orlofsky from Strauss's
Opera, Die Fledermaus. More great pictures of local pets in opera
roles and photographed by Randy Cummings of Bunn Hill
Photography are available at: www.tricitiesopera.com The website
also allows people to vote for their favorite calendar dog (or Filson!)
until 4/15/14, with all proceeds supporting the local performing arts.

Filson is currently 16 months old. At 9 months old, he earned his first
AKC points in the show ring and 3 legs of his Junior Hunter were
completed in the Fall of 2013. Many thanks to his breeders: Chet and
Nancy Anderson (Anderson's Vizslas) for this beautiful birdie boy out
of Summer and Cazador (Celtic Essence Vizslas). Filson is owned,
handled and loved by Lynda Ruffini.
