And the winner of the Crypton dog bed!!!

Savi enjoying her cool, new Crypton dog bed
Woo hoo!  Crypton Fabrics had a contest on Facebook and we didn't even know that we were entered or had even won until a friend notified us! By liking something on the Crypton Facebook page, they randomly picked four people to each win one of their amazing Crypton Wegman designed fabric dog beds. And they included a copy of Bark magazine in the box, which Crypton has a big ad in and on the back cover was Savi's Swiffer ad!  It was an awesome surprise to say the least!

Along for the ride

 Savi was not entered at the shows last weekend but had fun hanging out ringside with our other Grayhart dogs, Mason and Trudy and other Weim friends.  The best part of shows, everyone has treats in their pockets!
Trudy, Mason and Savi
Yummy Hebrew National hotdogs!
Who could resist those eyes and piercing look of attention???

Maybe they won't notice...

 The nose knows...Savi found the dead bird from an earlier training session and we decided to do some retrieving practice...
It was going well...until...
 The pup with a mind of her own thought....maybe they won't notice if I just steal the bird!

Weimaraner Wednesday - Spring Tease

  After being pounded with snow and ice this winter, we were so excited to finally get back to field training for the first time in almost three months!  Yesterday's temps of almost 50 degrees made it feel like Spring and the dogs couldn't have been happier to be back at the preserve.
  Savi was turned on by all the smells but remembered what she was supposed to do and found her birds and held her point.  She did move when we flushed the bird and she received  a correction with the check cord.  Then she stood solid for the flush.  She is training for Senior and must hold point until the shot.
  Here Savi turned on scent to find her second bird hidden in the grass.  This one she didn't need any reminders and held steady during the flush, shot and until we released her!  We'll start working more on honoring and shooting over her to get her ready to enter in Senior this year.
