Mia wins a 5-pt Specialty Major!!!

 We are beyond thrilled that Mia, Grayhart's American Woman, CGC, (Parker x Trixie), owned by Michele Gravlin and myself, was Winner's Bitch and Best of Winner's at today's Garden State Weimaraner Club Independent Specialty show.  Mia won beautiful ribbons and fabulous trophies including a Weimstopper, shown above, and a metal dog sculpture wine holder.
 Huge thanks to Steve Lane for showing Mia to this wonderful win. Once Steve showed Mia in the Winner's Bitch class, I had to take over handling duties so Steve could show daddy Parker in breed.  Mia hasn't seen me in months, which meant I was hiding from her until she finished showing  As soon as Steve left the ring, I took Mia while Steve got ready to show Parker.  Mia covered me in kisses and mud and then it was back to business when it was time to go into the ring and compete for Best of Winners.  We were successful going Best of Winners and Parker was awarded Select Dog!

Many thanks go out to the Garden State Weimaraner Club members for putting on another fabulous independent specialty with wonderful hospitality, famous hot/cold buffet lunch, wonderful raffle and friendship.  I am a member of this club and it was an honor for us to win at our own club's event.
