Jessica & Mia and Debbie & Sky - new NRDs!!!
Our weekend began on a high note with Mason finishing his championship and littermate Trudy, going Winner's Bitch/Best of Winners/Best of Opposite at the same show.  Well today, at the Tarheel Weimaraner Club WCA Ratings test, both of our Southern girls earned their Novice Retrieving Dog titles.  Congratulations to Debbie Moody & Sky, Grayhart Lightfoot Early Morning Rain, RN,JH,TD,NSD,NRD,V (Trixie x Parker) & Jessica Scharff & Mia, CH Grayhart's Special Request,CD,RA,NSD,NRD,V (Trixie x Zeke)!

From the WCA website, here is what is required for a dog to earn an NRD:

NRD—Novice Retrieving Dog 
A. Requirements for dogs competing for NRDs shall be as follows: 
1. Land Retrieve 
a. Dog is required to retrieve a single dead bird on land, a shot will be fired. 
b. Retrieve shall be a minimum of 20 yards, but shall not exceed 40 yards. 
2. Water Retrieve

At the Long Island New York shows, Trudy, Grayhart's Special Reserve (Trixie x Zeke), handled by me, her breeder and co-owner was WB/BOS for a 3 pt major! Trudy now only needs three single points to complete her AKC show championship! Trudy's win photo to be posted at a later date.
