Jersey - Fun in the Field

Jersey, Grayhart's Goin Someplace Special, did just that and spent a day in the field on Wednesday, learning how to retrieve, point birds and play in the water with her BFF, a GSP named Emma.

Awesome retrieve for a 3 month old puppy! Emma and Jersey
Jersey's not yet ready to swim but is quite willing to wait for Emma to get close enough for the big steal...
I know there's a bird in there!

Mason's First Show...visit.

I wanna be a show dog when I grow up!
This stacking business is pretty easy. Mason shown at 12 weeks.
Gaiting...sure I'll follow you anywhere for that liver!
Mason, out of our Trixie-Zeke litter, attended his first show as a spectator and to work with Zeke's breeder, Pat. He loved all the attention and impressed everyone with his outgoing personality.

Maggie & Dexter

Maggie, Grayhart's Special Magic, was thrilled to meet her new brother, Dexter, a two-year old chocolate lab.
Even though she's much smaller, Maggie has already established who's in charge!
They love to play together and having Dexter there made Maggie's transition to her new home seemless. In a year or so, this picture will look quite different when Maggie will be taller than Dexter.
