Pack walk Weimstyle!

Memorial Day was a perfect weather day and my friend, KellyAnn and I enjoyed taking the girls, Trixie, Jam and Savi plus visitors CeCe and Presley on a 3-mile walk in the neighborhood.  It was quite a sight!

Dynamite Debut for CeCe!

What an exciting weekend on Long Island, where CeCe, Grayhart's Almost Famous, (Parker x Savi) owned by KellyAnn and Chris Kwiatek and me, made her show debut and came away a winner, not once but twice, earning 3 points towards her AKC Championship! A big thank you to Steve and Bonnie Lane, owner of Parker, CeCe's sire, for showing CeCe to these wins.  CeCe is off to a wonderful start to her show career.

We also showed Jam, CH Grayhart's Purple Haze, CD, JH, AX, AXJ, SD, VX, (Parker x Trixie), for the first time in months, and she was awarded Select Bitch for 2 Grand Championship (GCH) points!  Jam only needs 2 more single GCH points to earn the GCH title.

Great weekend for littermates Sky & Marshall

 A super Mother's Day weekend for littermates Marshall and Sky from our Hendrix litter (Parker x Trixie).  Laura and Marshall, CH Grayhart's In From the Storm, RN, CGC, made their debut in the Rally Advanced ring and qualified two day in a row to earn two of the three required legs towards the Rally Advanced title.  The Rally Advanced course is done entirely off lead and Marshall showed nice attention and worked happily with Laura.  Although Laura has shown Weims in the conformation ring for years, Marshall is Laura's first rally/obedience dog and she is doing a great job and more importantly, have lots of fun!
 Debbie and Sky, CH Grayhart Lightfoot Early Morning Rain,RN,TD, JH,AX, MXJ, CAT, NSD, NRD,CGC, VX2 showed in agility down in South Carolina at the Masters level and double Q'd (qualified)!!!  That means that in the same day, Sky qualified in both Masters Standard and Masters Jumpers.  

We are very proud of Debbie and Laura and their dogs!

New NRD title for Mica!

 Congratulations to Debbie Moody and Mica, Grayhart Lightfoot River of Light, (Parker x Savi) for earning her WCA NRD (Novice Retrieving Dog) title at the Tarheel Weimaraner Club Retrieving Ratings test.  Mica is the first pup from our Fast Times litter to earn a title and we are so proud of this team.  
To earn the NRD title, a dog must retrieve birds both on land and then in the water.  The handler must stand in a circle, usually made of hose or rope, and cannot leave that spot, the dog must bring the bird back into the circle.

 Nice retrieve to hand!
 At the Novice level (NRD), the handler is allowed to hold the dog until they are released for the retrieve.  You can see Mica is straining with excitement.
Mica is a natural retriever like her Momma Savi and loves to swim like both her parents!
