Another Double Q

Proud of Miss Mia - double Q'd Friday in Excellent Standard for her 2nd leg and her first Master Jumpers leg at the Tarheel Weimaraner Club Trial in Sanford, NC.  We also got a T2B (Time 2 Beat) Q so I guess we really triple Q'd.  This is the trial our local club hosts every year but due to varying circumstances, we have never been able to compete in it.  Great start to our weekend!

Summer = Pack Walks

I love being off work during the summer.  It gives me so much more time to spend with my girl.  And one of our favorite things - Thursday morning pack walks.

A tired weim is a happy weim...and exhausted one is even better :)

Mia earns her Open Agility Jumpers Title!

I am thrilled to announce Mia earned her 3rd OAJ (open agility jumpers leg) and OAJ title with a first place at the Charlotte Dog Training Club Agility Trial in Concord, NC.  She also earned her first excellent jumpers leg with a first place!  We came very close to qualifying on our other runs but Miss Mia is really fast and her handler (me) had some errors that pulled her off jumps.  At the excellent level, no mistakes are allowed which can be difficult when running a fast dog with a lot of drive.  I have to cue Mia right on time: a second too early, and I pull her off course; a second too late and she's off to run her own course :)  Even though we had some mistakes, we also had a ton of fun and I can't wait to do it again!  Pictures below are all from Phyllis Ensley Photography.

Happy 5th Birthday!

Happy Birthday Mia!

"I can run pretty fast, ya know"

Hard to believe my special girl is already 5 years old!  I love having her in my life and look forward to many more years together.

February Beach Day

We've had a fairly cold winter thus far so when I saw temperatures were going to be in the 60's this weekend, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to take Mia to one of our favorite places - the beach!!  Ahhh...vitamin D therapy :)

Snow??? In Wilmington???

Yup, even on the southeastern coast of North Carolina, we still get snow every now and then.  We've had a couple of bad winter storms this year that resulted in mostly ice - not fun at all.  During the lastest storm, we lost power for several days - and it was cold!  Fortunately, Mia works as my own personal electric blanket so we stayed warm at night.

Look closely - there's a weimaraner in there somewhere ;)
