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!
