Mia gets her NRD!

Mia in practice Saturday
I am thrilled that Mia earned her NRD today (Novice Retrieving Dog)!  She had 2 beautiful retrieves, both on land and in the water.  This makes her now...Ch Grayhart's Special Request, CD, RA, NSD, NRD, V.  Since she has so much retrieving drive and did such a great job this weekend, I'm planning to compete in the retriever hunt tests which are now allowed by the AKC.  Hopefully, she'll be ready for senior hunter next spring. 

Debbie took this picture on her phone Saturday.  The picture was taken from a good distance away so we zoomed in as much as possible, which is why it's a little fuzzy.

We also want to congratulate Debbie Moody and Sky, Grayhart Lightfoot Early Morning Rain, RN, JH, TD, NSD, NRD, V for qualifying today in NRD as well.

And if that's not enough, Mia's brother Mason, Grayhart's Daily Special finished his bench championship on Friday and Mia's sister Trudy, Grayhart's Special Reserve, went WB Friday for 2 points and then went on to win a 3 point major today!  She now just needs 3 singles to finish her bench championship!  It was a grayt weekend for team Grayhart!


  1. Woo hoo! Congratulations! So proud of all our Grayhart dogs and owners!

  2. Awesome job!

    Congratulations :-)
