Featured Weimaraner — Willow
Willow is only one competition win (“major”) away from her UKC CH, so she will get that in time. She is a silly, wiggly puppy and I love that about her, she makes me laugh repeatedly on a daily basis! She will settle into herself, mentally and physically, within the next year, so I am confident she will get her UKC CH in 2013.
I just started a breed ring handling class with her this week, it runs for two months, so she and I will both get good ring practice there; we have a Wheaton Terrier, a Shiba, an Akita, a Cavalier, and my friend Kathy the instructor has Belgian Shepherds, so it is a good mix. Willow stacks herself nicely, we just need more work on holding her stand-stay (I don’t want to be too firm with her as I want her to enjoy showing) and her gaiting, as she gets overly excited when we trot, she wants to “boing” through the air, LOL! She is such a character!
! My doctor told me last week that a doctor friend of hers lost her old Weimar recently and wants to get another but is not ready yet- I told her all about Willow and to contact me when she is ready so I can send her your way!
Breeder’s Note: OwyheeStar thanks Jan for keeping us updated on Willow’s progress. A puppy grows so quickly that is hard to believe this was Willow last January. She was still at OwyheeStar. The photo to the left was her at three weeks. The second photo was taken at five weeks. Finally, we thank Jan, for her referrals. A lot of our placements are to repeat clients, and referrals. Our success has grown due to a lot of hard work, but also because of our fan base. Thank you, each and everyone!
