We are always excited to see what a new year will bring and this year is no exception. So many fun things are ahead of us this year in the show ring and in the field. We look forward to sharing them with you. 2017 started with a bang and we hope to see it continue!
The first weekend of the year is always one of our favorite shows, the Northstar Weimaraner Club Specialty and Land O Lakes KC show in St. Paul, MN:
Iris – BISS GChS Doc’s Crosswind Starry Eyed Jewel of Acadia (Tonka x Zoe)- won Best in Specialty! She also picked up some SB awards over the weekend.
Henley – Ch Jewel’s Now You See Me (Eli x Iris) – won Best Bitch in Sweepstakes
Ivan – Ch Jewel’s Knock Out Punch (Eli x Iris)- won Best Dog in Sweepstakes and Best of Opposite Sex at the specialty
Jay – BISSx4 Ch Jewel’s Heartland Flyer JH CD RE BN NSD NRD V (Davor x Halley)- showed that age is just a number and it’s in your heart that carries you. At almost 12 years old, he was so happy and proud to strut his stuff in the show ring once again.
Rowdy’s girls also showed their stuff with Sabine (Rowdy x Lillian 2) winning WB all 4 shows that weekend and CeCePink (Rowdy x Lucy) picked up a SB on her way to her Grand Champion title.
The last weekend in January we traveled to Grayslake, IL for the Weimaraner Club of Illinois Specialties and the Cool Cluster of dog shows:
Ivan – Ch Jewel’s Knock Out Punch (Eli x Iris) won Best of Opposite Sex at the specialty
Cash – Jewel’s Walk The Line (Eli x Iris) won Best Dog in Sweepstakes and Winners Dog for his first point
On the field side of things, it has been fun to see our Mike x Juno pointer puppies get started in their field careers. Chance had his debut and showed good things, but definitely needed to step out to learn some obedience! Archie, owned by Mike and Andrea Northwood earned himself a placement in his first puppy stake and is showing great things. They follow in their brother Mikey’s , owned by Meredith Mays, footsteps who earned his first placements last fall! We are so excited about the future with these boys!
Bring on February 2017!
