Re: Random question on pronunciation?

Flint14, what an experience! I think I once read about the "company" you mentioned. There are many similar companies like that in the US...

P.S. I sent you PM

Redbirddog- Thanks so much for sharing my post about Europuppy. I hope that someone can learn from my mistake.

My puppy seems to be doing a little better, no diarrhea at all today!!

Re: Random question on pronunciation?

Please don't take this the wrong way but vizsla is vizsla.
Zs should sound exactly like measure and the 'i' should be quick and short.

Flint14, I do hope your little Vizsla guy is going to be well soon! Poor little guy... It's certainly not his fault.

Regarding pronunciation: I think the "zs" in Vizsla is pronounced like the "zs" in Zsa Zsa. Another way to think of it is to think of the last consonant sound in the word "garage". It isn't a very common sound in many English words.

Now this is a right pronunciation "Veeeeeeejjjlah!!
I mean even this one isn't correct 100%.
ZS in Hungarian is a very complex letter i would put an "s" in front the L.

Europuppies sounds bad, hope the little one gets better soon.

Flint14. Placed on RBD to shine light into the shadows.

This does require it's own post about "Europuppy." Puppy mills flourish in the shadows. You could be a light to shine into the darkness.

I know of Puppy mills here in the U.S. and in the U.K. but I haven't heard much about them on the Continent.

Re: Random question on pronunciation?

Suliko - I live very near Pordenone!!! =) I'm sure you've heard of Aviano AFB, we are here because my husband works there. We've got two years left!

We got our pup from the company "europuppy". In all honesty, I'd never do it again, I now know how shady they are and I'm upset I was never able to contact the breeder myself. It's basically a third party that sets breeders up with buyers. A lot of people on base recommended it to us, but I'm pretty miffed at them. I'm actually trying to find a way to get it out that nobody should ever do business with these people. My puppy is beautiful and I love him, but he was not very healthy when I picked him up, which makes me believe that these people care more about the money than the dogs. =(

They met me at the border between Slovenia and Hungary, because I was vacationing in Slovenia. They were four hours late, and when they arrived, my puppy had been sitting in his own poo and pee for WHO knows how long. He was the only dog in the car, so I can't imagine why he wasn't clean. It was only an hour's drive from Budapest, where the breeder was. He's had an intestinal parasite from day one and was quite thin when I picked him up. We're going on two weeks with him here, and he's been sick every single day. The vet has high hopes that he should be fine by next week, though.

All in all, I feel very stupid for doing business with these people and I hope that at least one person will read this and NEVER use that company. Go directly to a breeder yourself!!!!!!! I didn't, because I was having a tough time finding one and it was so easy to go through the third party company. BAD IDEA.

Re: Random question on pronunciation?

Hi Flint14, I was trying to find a word in Italian containing a "zs" similar-sounding letter in it... can't think of one!

Where in Italy do you live? I used to live in Livorno and then moved up North near Pordenone. Now I'm in the US and miss Italy a lot.
What breeder did you get your V from? I imported my youngest V. from HU, too Sorry... offtopic... :-[

Re: Random question on pronunciation?

Got my boy directly from Hungary =) Picked him up there myself. It's "veeshla". There's actually a little bit of a 'J' sound in there. like "Veeshjla"

Funny thing, though, I live in Italy, and they call him the generic word for "gun dog" in Italian.

My vet called him a "veeshla" in English, when talking to me (He's American, but speaks Italian and works for mostly Italians), but when he told his wife, who it Italian, what breed my pup is, he pronounced it "veeesla".
