TDX Component Training Seminar-Snow Camp, NC

Sky is showing off her new Carolina Blue harness we used at the Ed Presnell/Gretchen Stephenson TDX Component training seminar we attended this past weekend. It was two days of intense tracking training for handlers and dogs, Sky and I were both mentally exhausted by the end, but learned so much (including knowing we can track in a horse/cow pasture and not get too distracted, and no, that bunny that jumped up 5 ft from our track was not put there to chase! I would recommend anyone desiring to go to advanced levels in tracking attend this seminar. We hope to have more pictures available from this weekend at a later date.
Two more participants, Merita and Talon, a lovely 3 yrs old GSD, and my friend and tracking partner, Margo with her very talented GSD bitch, Nikita.

Trixie had her litter right on schedule on January 14th, mom and pups are all doing great. For more pics, check out . There is nothing nicer than a healthy and happy litters of Weim puppies, and Linda does a great job of making certain they have every advantage .

Trixie Waiting for the Big Day

Trixie relaxing before the big event next week. Sky can't wait to see pictures of her half siblings by Clay, BIS/BISS CH Bzyfeet American Idol.
CH Graytsky's I'm Not Really A Waitress CD, NA, NAJ, RN, V, aka Trixie , is Sky's dam and is expecting her 3rd and final litter on Jan 14th. A trip to the vet today reveals all well with the pups and if history tells us anything, Trixie will resume her girlish figure soon after the pups are weaned. But for now, we all know where the watermelon went. . .

Happy New Year - Jan 1, 2010

Lightfoot Weimaraners wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year, whatever form that may take. Joe and I took no chances and have had a traditional southern meal of black eye peas, mustard greens and cornbread to bring us good luck and fortune! Sky will probably opt for her kibble and some yummy left over steak from last night's dinner!

Grayhart Lightfoot Early Morning Rain after tracking a full length practice track on New Years Day, we used a field that was partially pasture and part dirt/mud to work on different surfaces that hold scent differently. Sky did a great job and as a reward got to play not only with the glove at the end but her favorite throw toy that we save just for these occasions.

Snow Hiking at East Fork

The day after Christmas Sky and Debbie searched out a place to hike and work off some energy, nature provided a winter wonderland and we tried out a new trail, looking forward to going back when the snow melts.
