AKC Meet the Breeds - Part 1

Savi & Jo posing by a cool dog sculpture that was in the lobby on our way in - it was on sale for $3500!
 Yesterday was a super busy day as we had volunteered to man the Weimaraner booth in the afternoon, at the 3rd Annual AKC Meet the Breeds event held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.  This is a huge event with over 200 breeds of dogs and cats plus demos and vendors.
 The ambassadogs for the WCA - were Parker, BISS GCH HiBourne's It's All About Me, BROM, with owner/breeder, Bonnie Lane and our Savi, Grayhart's Shear Genius,JH,NSD,NRD,CGC, with my daughter, who did an awesome job handling her all day.  My hubby was also there to help and spoke to many people, educating them on the breed.  A real family day!
 The event was very crowded and everyone who walked by wanted a chance to pet, kiss and hug Savi.
 And it was nonstop flashbulbs as too many people to count, wanted a photo op with our supermodel, Savi.

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!
