And while Trixie and Jam were home relaxing with the petsitter, we were off having a great family vacation at the happiest place on Earth - Disney! A whirlwind trip to Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom was the perfect way to spend Thanksgiving.

Savi was just awesome dealing with all the people as there were literally thousands of people there. She seemed to be a magnet and drew the crowds in to see the Weim booth.
Parker greeted people and of course, expected Jo to share her snack with him...who could resist that sweet face!
It was a long afternoon and we were all pooped...
Savi found the table to be a comfy spot to hang out as we cleaned up for the day.

|Savi & Jo posing by a cool dog sculpture that was in the lobby on our way in - it was on sale for $3500!|
Savi turned on the charm and was an awesome representative for our breed, impressing everyone she met with her sweet disposition, stable temperament and terrific training.
The Weimaraner booth, representing the Weimaraner Club of America, Garden State and Long Island Weimaraner Clubs, was decorated with photos of Weims doing everything from agility, obedience, swimming, hunting, showing, etc. There were also informational handouts on the breed and books for people to peruse.
And the best part for Savi - all the yummy treats she got!

She came very close to qualifying on Friday in JWW, with a terrific run but slipped on the mud and missed the tunnel entrance at the end of the course. The standard courses were a challenge for us with a very difficult weave pole entry on Friday, that wasn't doable for us and on Saturday, Jam slipped off the teeter. She did manage to nail her weaves in three of our four runs and had awesome start line stays. We'll be working on speeding up her weaves as well as teaching independent weaves and difficult entries; important skills at the excellent level, especially if we want to be competitive. I also tried to apply some of what we learned at the Tracy Sklenar seminar and I feel that although we are a work in progress, Jam was more responsive and my handling was improved.
A highlight of the trial was seeing many friends that I have not seen for awhile since we have not trialed locally in a long time. It was exciting to see how well their dogs ran and cheer them on.

Not everyone was upset by the freak snowstorm that enveloped the Northeast at the end of October. Whitmore, Grayhart's Millionaire Matchmaker, (Clay x Trixie), had a blast playing in the snow. Thanks to his owner, Chris McNeil, for taking these amazing shots.
