Puppy on Saturday with his sister Dory going WB/BOS the same day.

- March 2019
- Wheeler, Grayson and I went to the Louisville, KY shows for the
weekend. Each boy was entered 1 day, Wheeler showed well on
Saturday but didn't receive any love from the judge. Grayson on Sunday
was a different story. We had several "chats" that morning in the motel
room and on the way to the show about how he needed to listen to me
and give it his all for the win. Well it paid off big time! He started by
winning the 4 dog open class and then going on to capture WD for the 5
pt. major. But he wasn't done yet, we also went BOW! What a great day,
one of those days that makes all the work worthwhile.
- Took a weekend trip with no dogs to visit friends in Cleveland, OH. I had
a great time with my human and canine friends visiting Foster (Tate X
Ava) and Beau Dee (Gauge X Gracie.) In true Cleveland style, I woke up
to 3 inches of snow Sunday morning.

- Corey, Grayson and I attended the fall Miami Valley Vizsla speciality and
supported entry weekend in Wilmington, Ohio. Friday at the specialty,
Corey was 2nd out of 5 in a nice Veteran 7-9 yr. Sweeps Class. Grayson
and I had an awesome day with him taking WD for a 4 pt. major and
finishing his championship under judge Charles Olvis. He was also BOB
Owner Handler. Corey's daughter Dory had a good day also going BOS
in sweeps and reserve to the major in bitches. Benz and Grayson both
showed lovely on Saturday and Sunday but no love from the judges
except Benz was BOB Owner handler on Saturday. Reuben, Grayson's
brother, was WD on Sunday for 2 pts.
- Wheeler is off for some bird work / field training with Jean Webb (Trainer
/ Handler.) For the rest of the year, I plan to maybe show Grayson 1
day@Columbus Cluster in November. It will be nice to have some down
time from showing at the end of the year to spend at home and focus on
starting a new job.
- Look forward to more FAST CAT, obedience, field and confirmation in
