Well March was a crazy month… we were driving fools! The month started with Chris driving to Tennessee to the legendary Ames Plantation to watch Juno and Clark compete in the AKC Gun Dog Championships. To run in this event, the dogs have to qualify by a great win. Clark qualified with his 2nd place finish in the WCA National Amateur Championship and Juno qualified with her 2nd place finishes in the APC National Championship and National Amateur Championship. We are so proud to have had the run!
While Chris was there, Steph drove to the twin cities for the Northstar Weimaraner Club meeting. Three of the Iris x Eli puppies were there to socialize and it was so fun to see them!
The day after Chris got home – Steph then took Daphne, China and visiting brittany Louie to Kansas City, MO for the 4 days of shows. Was great to see many friends there! China did us proud by winning WB on Sunday to earn her 2nd major!
A few days later we get a call that – yep Juno is looking pregnant now. Chris had seen her the week before at the AKC Gun Dog and decided she wasn’t pregnant, so left her to compete for the spring season. Silly girl…. So Chris drove to Kentucky to pick her up and bring her home. While doing that, Steph drove up to Wisconsin to pick up the whelping box and supplies from Anna and Dustin.
Steph and Anna then traveled to DeWitt, IA for the dog shows with Daphne, China, Louie, Iris and babies Henley and Ivan. Henley started her show career with a bang by winning Best Puppy in Match on Friday. Iris was BOB both days, Daphne SB both days, Louie picked up a major on Sunday and China was WB both days to finish her Championship!
The following Friday, Steph drove Louie to Creston, IA for the Iowa Brittany Specialty. No real successes, but the practice is ALWAYS good for Louie. A quick nigh stop over for the wayward traveler (me) in Des Moines, IA for a visit with John and Kim, then back home for “puppy watch”
April 4th brought with it our new additions! Pointer puppies! We are very excited about their futures… it is a fun adventure for us as this is the first litter we have ever had that wasn’t weimaraners. They are adorable and working on growing 🙂
BB finished up the GREAT month with an All-Breed OGD win at the Fort Detroit GWP trial in Michigan for a 3 pt major toward her FC!
This leaves us looking forward to a great rest of the spring…..
