Working girl

Savi did a fabulous high fashion editorial photo shoot Friday for a top international fashion magazine. The studio was located at Chelsea Piers in New York City. While waiting to be called to set, Savi hung out on the gorgeous outdoor roof deck. We look forward to seeing the spread in the August issue of the magazine.

Our agent Nancy from AllTame and the client's representative. You can see Savi adores them!
The diva hard at work!

Field trip

At obedience class Thursday night, we took a field trip to the local train station. What better way to incorporate real life distractions into our training regimen. Above, group stays and below, Savi, practicing her stand for exam, waiting to be examined. We also did off lead recall and Savi nailed them as well held her stays. A bonus was to enjoy the beautiful spring evening during class and walking to and from the train station!

Future Agility Star

Savi, demonstrating her agility skills at the Annual TSWR Picnic. Like her Momma and sisters, she knows how to fly over the jumps. Savi still needs work on her weave poles but loves the contact equipment and is very responsive on course. We hope for her to make her agility debut this summer.

Cinco de Weimo!

Trixie during her demo
 A fun day was had by all at the Tri-State Weimaraner Rescue's 6th Annual Picnic held at the Ironwood Outdoor Center in Lumberton, NJ.  The forecast was for a sunny day in the 80's but that never happened and the temps stayed cool in the high 60's and the day was overcast.  The drab weather did not ruin the day and it was amazing to see dozens of Weims run loose together, playing and socializing, while their owners enjoyed good food and a terrific raffle.
Savi takes a turn
 We volunteered to bring some agility equipment for a demo and to let the other Weims take a try at our favorite sport.
 Trixie sported her new Mod Dog collar for the occasion...
Ha, I'm the Weim Whisperer! This is only about half the dogs that ended up surrounding me and sitting for a treat!
 A mix of gray and blue Weims frolicked in the huge fenced area and the people food was kept in the smaller fenced area by the pool.
 Trying to get a group picture with all those people and dogs was a challenge for sure!
 This was an excellent fundraiser for a great cause.  At the end of the summer, TSWR holds another event at Ironwood where the dogs get to swim in the pools before they are drained for the season.
