Following a bit of a break, Papa was back in the ring and raring to go, on 6/13/08 (who says Friday the 13th is bad luck?!)...and go he did. Under Judge Beth Speich Papa won the breed, and again under Judge Speich, Papa won the Sporting Group. 6/14 and 6/15, Papa again won the breed, under Judges Don Evans and Linda More, respectively. No such luck in the Group ring, however.

Well, the week of Weimaraner Nationals has come and gone. It was great to visit with some old friends and to make some new ones!

For us, the week started off with the Nutmeg Weimaraner Club Specialty Show. Paparazzi was recognized as Best of Opposite Sex under Judge Douglas Johnson. Congrats to all who participated!

Our next show was the Yankee Weimaraner Club Specialty. Paparazzi, again was recognized as Best of Opposite Sex, this time under Judge Sam Houston McDonald. The field looked great.

Wednesday evening culminated with the 2007 Top 20 Competition. Papa was lucky enough to squeek in, finishing 2007 at #10 in Breed Points and #15 in All Breed Points. What a difference a few months makes! Our three Judges for the evening were Ellen Grevatt, Kaki Fisher and Christine Pollender. After extensive examinations, the weims were scored, 125 ponts from each judge accross multiple characteristics, totalling 375 points. Our boy did well. He finished second, and lost by 0.5 points! Great job by all, but I have to wonder how he was scored a 7/10 for his topline by one judge...I could go on, but it will just sound like sour grapes! Suffice to say, we are very proud of Paparazzi, and so pleased he can serve as an ambassador for the breed.

Friday saw our week come to a crescendo, with the Weimaraner Club of America National Specialty Show. Another beautiful day welcomed the exhibitors and participants. Judge Keke Kahn was charged with assessing the field of the nations best. Paparazzi was again recognized as the Best of Opposite Sex. We may just change his name to "Boss".

Thanks to all who cheered on he and Stacy! A special Thanks to all the judges who were charged with the arduous task of evaluating all of our dogs!!!

Photos forthcoming.

Picking up where he had left off, he won the breed both Saturday (Judge Tom Hale) and Sunday (Judge Bettyann Hale) in Warwick, RI. Sunday, he was recognized as the Group 1 (Judge B. Hale). Thanks to both Judges for their recognition and all the ring-side support!!!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

This past weekend, in York, PA, Paparazzi went B.O.B. on 3/13 under judge B. Nolan Dale, B.O.B. on 3/14 under judge James R. White and closed out the weekend with a 3rd B.O.B. 3/16, under the discerning eye of judge Nancy S. Cowley. Appreciation goes out to each of the judges for their recognition...check the "Show Shots" for some pictures - particularly Papa's Mom (and Mom to be) handling him in the group ring on 3/14!!! Great job, Lynn!

Proud Owner Note: Although he didn't receive a Group Placement on 3/16, I believe it is the best he has looked to date (and I'm typing this after his most recent GRP 1 of 4/5)...See "Show Shots".

 

****AKC STANDINGS****

Paparazzi may have started out slowly, but he appears to be gaining momentum!!! Presently (results through 3-1-08) he is the #1 Weimaraner Dog in the Country in both Breed and All Breed totals!!!!

Hmmm, what to say about the Florida circuit? It was "interesting", to say the least. Long story short, there is a movement afoot to change Papa's name to "B.O.S.s". Congrats to all the winners!!!

We did make some wonderful friends (Donna (Papa's god-mother), Chris, Pat) and fostered Papa's bond with Stacy and Michael! Pictures should be up soon.
