About the Author

Gay Gottlieb was born in Gloucestershire and spent her formative years in the country. She went to school in England and Switzerland and lived in Paris for some years. She welcomed her first Vizsla dog, Sh Ch Waidman Remus, in the early 1970s, shortly followed by a bitch, Sh Ch Galfrid Sofia at Russetmantle. Over the following four decades she studied and nurtured the breed dedicating her time and love to this most beautiful animal.
