American Weimaraner Nationals 2008

I've had a very busy couple of weeks and have not had time to update my blog ........So here we go. At the end of May a friend and I travelled to the U.S. Weimaraner Nationals in Warwick, Rhode Island.
We arrived a day early and did the "tourist" thing, driving to Providence for the day. Our GPS was NOT in a great mood that day and took us on several journeys that turned out to be very interesting. I am sure we saw parts of that town that otherwise we would never have seen! *S* This is a view of the harbour at Fort Adams.

We spent the week watching the dog show, obedience and agility In this picture is Cooper - our Nevada's sire being shown in Veterans where he placed 2nd. He is such a great dog and very accomplished. I know this is not up to date but his registered name, including titles is:
BIS UCH, Am/Can/Int CH
Grauschattens Ghostly Encore, Am/Can CD, Am CDX, RN, NA, NAJ, MH, SDX, RDX, VX3, CGC, TDI, TT

Cooper is 8 years young now and still strutting his stuff like a youngster.

Here we have Cooper in an Agility run with owner/handler Mary Beth Hall. During this week long show, Cooper took High in Trial in the Weimaraner only trial and the very next day took High Weimaraner in trial in an All Breed Trial. For a veteran that guy can really move!

We had a great week, a great holiday, met up with old friends and acquaintances, met new friends and
generally had a wonderful time.
