News and notes from the dog show trail, Sept. 27, 2017

It’s time for the news and notes summer round-up! There’s been a lot going on the last few months, obviously blogging hasn’t been one of them. Be assured, with the puppies on the way, my posts will likely become more frequent.

For the fall dog shows, Bones has made is way to just needing a major to finish his championship. His sister Hannah picked up a few more singles along the way.  We are off to the nether reaches of South Dakota and Nebraska in search of those now-elusive majors. Bones also took Best in Sweepstakes, and Best of Winners at the Mile High Weimaraner Club specialty show.

Sabine picked up two more JH qualifications at the South Dakota Hunting Club hunt test, the weekend of August 20th. On Sept.23rd she earned her last JH qualification at the Northstar Weimaraner Club hunt test! Congratulations to the Purchase family! Sabine also has a JHR qualification and will be working toward that title as well.

Eliza spent the summer earning novice, intermediate and advanced trick-dog titles, and learning new activities with her owner Christina. She also went to a trick-dog seminar for Kyra Sundance’s, “Do More With Your Dog”.  She recently went to her first agility trial and qualified 4 out of 5 times.

All of these dogs are out of our Oct.4, 2015 litter with Lillian and Rowdy.
