Hopefully, her win photos with the judge will come out well and I will post them to the blog. Debbie and Sky were also in Winston-Salem and we had a wonderful time visiting with them. And - Sky went Winners Bitch and Best of Opposite today:) Congrats to Debbie and Sky.

After our run Sunday, we met up with Debbie and Sky (whose house we were staying at, of course) and went for a wonderful hike in the NC mountains. The weather was beautiful and the girls had a fabulous time running all over the place.
At first, Mia didn't want to get her feet wet (she is a princess) but after a few trips through the creek, she decided that running through the water was pretty cool!
I love this picture of Mia and Sky looking out over the mountains.
On Saturday, Mia and I went to Lake Junaluska to walk around.
There were geese everywhere and Mia was quite fascinated by them.

In a few weeks, the Tarheel Weim club will have their hunt day and I'm looking forward to taking Mia and seeing if we can continue to improve. If she does well, I will enter her in the shooting ratings the next day and maybe get her novice shooting dog. And if she isn't ready, no big deal, we will keep working on it. One of the biggest lessons I learned this weekend was that you never know when the light bulb will go on for these dogs. It's important not to give up just because they don't get it right the first time. You just have to keep at it and maintain a positive attitude. And if it doesn't happen, that's fine - there are lots of other things we are going to do...and that's what makes this all so much fun - it's all part of the journey you take together.

Not much has been going on in the month of September, and there are several reasons for that. After a truly wonderful summer break, I had to return to work. Mia also came into season and hasn't been able to go to any of her training classes. I also had to take a short break from showing and competing. As much as I love traveling and doing all kinds of neat things with Mia, the costs do begin to add up so it's important to slow things down every now and then, both for Mia and me.
