April was a busy month here in Colorado. We enjoyed some of the crazy spring weather Colorado has to offer. We have a saying here, “if you don’t like the weather, just wait ten minutes”. Thankfully we were able to spend some time outdoors burning off some of the winter blubber.
The weekend of the 11th we attended the Terry-All Kennel Club dog show in Brighton, Colorado. Jean won Best of Breed on Saturday and GCH Select on Sunday. This gave her 6 more grand championship points, giving her 15 total and all of her grand champion majors.
Frankie took Winners on Saturday and Reserve Winners on Sunday. She now has 3 majors toward her championship title and just needs 2 points to finish!
Jean also picked up a leg toward her Junior Hunter title at the Mile High Weimaraner Club’s spring hunt test. We may have managed two qualifications but handler error is a real thing when you’re learning the ropes. I appreciate everyone’s patience and advice. We’ll be back at it next fall with the hope of a higher success rate.
