What a wonderful weekend in Winston-Salem, North Carolina! Two of our Grayhart girls were at the shows competing in conformation and obedience, winning the points everyday plus a 1st place in the obedience ring!
Miabelle, Grayhart's Special Request, RA,NSD, (Zeke x Trixie), competed in conformation and went Winners Bitch Friday and Saturday for two show points, and now has five towards her championship. Miabelle also competed in novice obedience and qualified for her 3rd CD leg with a 1st place and finished her CD, Companion Dog title. Miabelle is the first Trixie pup to earn an obedience title and qualified for all three legs with 1st places! This makes her:

|Savi sporting her new Chilly Dogs Great White North Winter coat. I consider these the Northface of dog coats.|
|The new coats have a new and improved design, a double buckle for a better fit.|
|Jam, wearing a purple Chilly Dogs coat, a color that they discontinued years ago but one we absolutely adore on our dogs. These coats are terrific quality and wear beautifully, even after years and many washings.|
|Trixie started the Pink trend...years ago we requested a coat made in fuchsia fleece and it was such a hit that it was added to the Chilly Dog's line.|

|Jam with her ribbons. There should be one more 1st place ribbon but the club ran out and will mail it to us.|
Jam had a terrific weekend at the Skyline Agility Club's Novice Only trial. She qualified 3 out of her 4 runs, all with top placements. On Saturday, she did well in her Novice Jumpers with Weaves (JWW) run but had a wrong course so didn't qualify even though she was 12 seconds under course time. Her Novice Standard run was super fast, almost 20 seconds under course time with just two little baubles, a wrong course and a table fault, which are allowed in novice and earned her 2nd place for her second Novice Standard leg.
Today was her winning day, finishing both her Novice Standard and Novice JWW titles with 1st places! All of Jam's novice agility legs were earned with placements. This also qualifies Jam for her Weimaraner Club of America Versatility "V" certificate. Her runs were fairly smooth except for her deciding to visit the ring crew for a quick hello which ate up precious time. She needs to get speedier on her teeter and weaves and we will spend the winter working on those skills to get ready for her Open debut at the Spring trials. Three of our four runs were videotaped and I'll be posting those in the next few days.
Jam is now....CH Grayhart's Purple Haze, JH,NA,NAJ,NSD,CGC,V

An innocent nooking session took a turn for the worse...
Death grip on the neck...
Trixie is in a trance-like state...
Notice the hole in the chest, the beginning of the de-stuffing procedure...the rest of the scene was too gruesome to show...
No remorse...annoyed that her eviscerated toy was taken away...

CH Grayhart's Purple Haze, JH,NSD,CGC!!!
Jam won her second 3-point major today at the Northeastern Maryland Kennel Club show, handled by Daddy Parker's owner/breeder, Steve Lane, which was all she needed to finish her AKC show championship. It was a wonderful team effort to earn Jam's championship, me as breeder/owner, able to put seven singles on her and Steve with two singles and those very important two majors. We are very grateful to Steve and Bonnie Lane of Hibourne, for their handling, mentorship and friendship.
Also at the show, Parker, CH Hibourne's It's All About Me, went Best of Opposite and completed his Grand Championship title.
Jam is the 2nd out of our Parker x Trixie litter to earn a championship, is Trixie's 2nd and Parker's 3rd champion get.
Win photo to be posted some time in the future.
