AKC Meet the Breeds - Part 2

 I wanted to share more fun shots of Savi and Parker at the AKC Meet the Breeds on November 19th.  Here they are vying for a treat from both sides of the table at the Weimaraner booth.
Savi was just awesome dealing with all the people as there were literally thousands of people there.  She seemed to be a magnet and drew the crowds in to see the Weim booth.  
Parker greeted people and of course, expected Jo to share her snack with him...who could resist that sweet face!

 It was a long afternoon and we were all pooped...
 Savi found the table to be a comfy spot to hang out as we cleaned up for the day.
We were very proud of the great job Parker and Savi did representing our breed.  The only catch is that everyone assumed that all Weims are as laid back and well trained as our crew...unfortunately that isn't the case.  We spent a lot of time educating people on the characteristics of the breed (high energy, need for a tremendous amount of exercise, very intelligent) and what a huge commitment it is to own, train and socialize a Weim or else they can be destructive, skittish, wild and even aggressive.  Yes, they are a beautiful breed but much more and not the right dog for most people.

AKC Meet the Breeds - Part 1

Savi & Jo posing by a cool dog sculpture that was in the lobby on our way in - it was on sale for $3500!
 Yesterday was a super busy day as we had volunteered to man the Weimaraner booth in the afternoon, at the 3rd Annual AKC Meet the Breeds event held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.  This is a huge event with over 200 breeds of dogs and cats plus demos and vendors.
 The ambassadogs for the WCA - were Parker, BISS GCH HiBourne's It's All About Me, BROM, with owner/breeder, Bonnie Lane and our Savi, Grayhart's Shear Genius,JH,NSD,NRD,CGC, with my daughter, who did an awesome job handling her all day.  My hubby was also there to help and spoke to many people, education them on the breed.  A real family day!
 The event was very crowded and everyone who walked by wanted a chance to pet, kiss and hug Savi.
 And it was nonstop flashbulbs as too many people to count, wanted a photo op with our supermodel, Savi.

Savi turned on the charm and was an awesome representative for our breed, impressing everyone she met with her sweet disposition, stable temperament and terrific training.

The Weimaraner booth, representing the Weimaraner Club of America, Garden State and Long Island Weimaraner Clubs, was decorated with photos of Weims doing everything from agility, obedience, swimming, hunting, showing, etc.  There were also informational handouts on the breed and books for people to peruse.

And the best part for Savi - all the yummy treats she got!
