Off to bird camp!

Savi was quite sad to see her brother Memphis go home yesterday. What she didn't know was that we had a big trip planned and she was going to bird heaven. Off we went for a long, nine hour drive to Ohio, where Savi will be going for field training to work on Senior and Master Hunter. Savi will learn to steady, hold until released for the retrieve, retrieve to hand and honor her bracemate on point.

Savi showed her new trainer what she's made of and impressed him with her intense points and drive, finding every bird he planted with style and attitude. It is a wonderful opportunity for Savi to be able to fulfill her potential and spend days doing what she loves - running in the field and hunting and retrieving birds. We'll be busy at home with pups, so the perfect time for Savi to be at bird camp.

We'll be posting pictures and videos as we get updates from her trainer

Savi soaring!

We were thrilled that on our Grayhart Southern Adventure (GSA), at the Tarheel Weimaraner Club Agility Trial, Savi made her agility debut and qualified for her Novice Standard and Novice Jumper with Weaves legs with 1st and 2nd placements! The TWC requested agility pictures of all the Weims who were entered for their newsletter and since it was Savi's first trial, we didn't have any agility shots to send in beforehand. Thanks to our pupparazzi, KellyAnn, we did an impromptu photoshoot at Debbie's house. The shot above is my favorite, showing off Savi's perfect jumping form and focus.
More great shots of our girl...

and sometimes, the funniest things appear...
Tongue anyone?
All ears!
