Supermodel Savi

A behind the scenes shot of Savi and her model friends!
Following in her momma Trixie and sister Jam's pawprints, Savi's modeling career is in full swing.  She was chosen to be in a holiday campaign for Gap Kids and based on the terrific feedback on set, it was the right choice.  Savi absolutely LOVES kids and the feeling was mutual and showed through in the shots of her surrounded by the crew of beautiful boys and girls modeling the clothes.  In fact, Savi garnered more attention from the crew and passersby on the busy Brooklyn street where we were located, than the human models!  We look forward to seeing the final ads to be used for in-store displays, mailers and on the store website sometime in November.

 Getting used to her "wardrobe" while resting up for  her call on set.  I'm always prepared with a towel or bed for her to lounge on, stars shouldn't have to sit or lay down on a dirty sidewalk.
On set, I'm rewarding Savi between shots.  The white stuff is fake snow.

Weimaraner Wednesday

Jam, enthusiastic in the fields!
 Weimaraner Wednesday fun spent field training with our friends and their dogs.  The weather was a bit hot and muggy with little breeze, so challenging scenting conditions for the dogs.
Jam on point
 The girls found the birds and had decent retrieves, especially our little retrieving machine, Savi, who does it with such gusto and retrieved to hand, it brings a smile to everyone who watches her.
Savi, air scenting as scenting as she hunts for birds
The leaves are already beginning to change color, reminding us that fall is upon us.  I just long for some nice cool weather.
 And only in New Jersey would we have such wild distractions in the bird field!  The preserve where we train is said to have one of the best Halloween Hayrides in the state!
 The dogs are so used to these freaky figures that they pay no attention to them.

Happy Hiking Face

Quite the happy girl at the end of a nice hike up at Harriman State Park with Jam.  I'd say she's smiling.

Savi Winner's Bitch at Newton Kennel Club!

At the Newton Kennel Club show, Savi, Grayhart's Shear Genius,JH,NSD,CGC, (Clay x Trixie) went Winner's Bitch from the Bred-By-Exhibitor class for her 7th point towards her AKC show championship!

As a reward, Savi got to go shopping at one or our favorite vendors, Paw Up on Health, and picked out a beef trachea.  I brought Trixie to their booth to pickup a supply of beef knuckle bones, which the dogs go crazy for and Trixie helped herself to a pork twizzle!  You eat it, you buy it!

I was happy to find out that there would be a health clinic at the show and brought all three girls for various services. They had many tests available, a vaccine clinic, a microchip clinic, vaccine titers, SNAP testing, OFA Thyroid testing and others all at discounted prices.  The vet was terrific and it was nice to be able to save a substantial amount of money.
