In Honor of OUR Dog

A cute, crazy vizsla puppy dog stole our hearts after living with us for over 12.5 years. We want his presence to live on through our sailing adventures on the lake.

Venture’s Ezekiel “Zeke” was a male, vizsla dog bred by Venture Vizslas in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  He was 1 of 8 adorable puppies in his litter. One of the smallest males (but not quite the runt), Zeke quickly grew up and weighed between 50 – 55 lbs throughout his whole life.

Zeke was our best dog ever!  He taught us unconditional love and loyalty, pure joy, and complete trust – always wagging his tail even at the end of his life.  Zeke was cautiously curious – never wanting to stray too far from us but constantly exploring his surroundings.  Zeke’s energy for life was contagious – he made friends with everyone he came across.

Zeke was a gentle soul who was especially good with children. My nieces would climb all over him, and he never complained. Zeke loved to cuddle and was always happy to see us – no matter how long we were gone. He was a happy dog that would constantly wag his tail, and occasionally when he was really happy, we’d get a helicopter tail from him. Zeke was good-looking with soft fur and silky smooth ears. You couldn’t help but want to reach out to touch him. He frequently received compliments – even from strangers. We loved our time with Zeke, and we still miss him tremendously!

Zeke was such a big presence in our lives that we decided to name our sailboat after him, and we created this site so his memory could live on.
