2 for 2: Mia's trip to Charleston

We met up with Debbie and Sky (Grayhart Lightfoot Early Morning Rain, JH, TD), half-sister to Mia, in Charleston for some shows. Big congrats to Debbie and Sky who won a 4 point major on Saturday!!! Mia also earned the first 2 legs of her novice rally title this weekend. We didn't make it for conformation in time Saturday, but we did make it in time Sunday. Mia didn't win any points but we had a great time, showed well, and can't wait to do it again!

Showing off our rally ribbon!

At the speciality: L to R: Sky, Jessica, Mia, Melissa

My princess and me!

Puppy Sweepstakes (unfortunately, our gaiting was all over the place in the sweepstakes but we made improvements throughout the weekend)

Don't be so serious girls!

A little more stacking practice before we leave. (Thanks Debbie!)

The Adventures of a Weimaraner and a Vizsla

Mia spent the evening with her BFF Remi while her mamma worked at DogTrain.
It doesn't get much better than this!

Well...maybe it does...

Yea, it does

Let me get a little closer...

Mia is scared of the big bad black cat...

But she's too curious to stay away


Best Friends Forever!

Mia goes to work with mom...again

We had another workday today since this is the end of our second grading period so Mia got to spend the day at work with me:)
"I'm bored"

"You have got to be kidding me"

"Fine...I'll just sleep then"

"There is so much I would rather be doing right now"

"I just want to go to sleep on my couch"

Mia's weekend with Remi

Mia spent the weekend with her new best Friend, Remi (vizsla) while I was out of town in Myrtle Beach. Erin, Remi's owner, wants to compete with her so hopefully, we can all train together and maybe even travel to some shows together.
Two peas in a pod!

Mia made herself right at home!

Nice shot!

Mia spent Monday recovering from her busy weekend playing!

Hanging Around

Not much has been happening with Mia lately so I decided to just post some pictures of her hanging out. We are getting ready for a busy weekend in Charleston the last weekend in January. I am showing Mia in a sweepstakes and 2 specialities, followed by 2 days of conformation and rally. We are going to be worn out, that's for sure!

Such a pretty face! No wonder she's spoiled rotten!

Mia likes to grab sticks that are bigger than her and trot around with them. I have to keep a eye on her to make sure she doesn't hurt herself. I keep telling her it's not safe to run with sticks but it doesn't seem to be working:) After all, persistance in a gun dog is a good thing!


We will be moving in a few weeks which is why there are boxes everywhere.

"What do you want??? I'm busy."

Mama and her baby! Notice my shirt - down here, I get a lot of "what is she?" And then I tell people and they look at me like, huh?

Mia loves to get in the recliner with me and sleep in my lap.
