Tempest first open Q in JWW

On the same day I earned my MACH my little sister Tempest earned her first Q in Open JWW. She has been trying and trying to get a Q and finally did it. Check out how FAST Tempie is. She did her run in just 23 seconds and got first place!

This is MY favorite part of the MACH deal. We made a special trip to McDonalds and Tempie and I got to share our very own McDouble. YUMMY!

MACH run

Here are some photos dad's mom took during my MACH run. The building was dark so they turned out kind of blurry.

Champion!

So as most of you know I have been talking a lot about a thing called a MACH. That is the Master Agility Champion title with AKC. I began my ACK career back in April 2009 when they began letting mixed breeds (AKA All American) dogs run in AKC. I was one of the very first All American dogs to earn an agility title with the AKC. I have had some set backs with hip dyplasia, etc. that kind of slowed me down a bit but thanks to Dr. Carlson and the acupuncture with supplements I was able to keep running agility pain free.

Well....on February 22nd our dream came true and I become an agility champion. So my new official name is now, Sagira, MACH, NF, TNN. Looks nice doesn't it?

Here is video of my run. You can hear momster crying and screaming on the video, BOL. She was shocked I got it on my first attempt. Most people get so nervous they have to do it a couple of times but mom should know that I am a good girl and like to do it right the FIRST time.

I have one more weekend to run in the AKC and that is in Zanesville. After that I will be retiring from AKC and moving over to CPE Agility. In CPE I can jump as low as 12" which will be a lot easier on my joints and we are doing it just for fun over there. Tempest will take over the AKC runs and begin working on her MACH.

Thanks to all who have supported us in this journey. It has been a great one!

Chewy Time!

It is time for our monthly Chewy.Com review. This month we decided to review a toy instead of treats. We love it when they offer toys to review.

We tried out the Nylabone toy. This is how it looks when it arrives.

These are all the details about it

We all got to take a turn with the toy. Starr is the oldest and always gets to go first. She carried it over and dropped it for inspection.

I had to go inspect it as well and see what all the fuss was about once Starr was done with it.

 photo EJWB_0973_zpslffqysyh.jpg

Bokeh is having a lazy Saturday and decided to take the toy to bed with him and chew on it in there.

 photo EJWB_0976_zpsr1iohdze.jpg

Tempie had a turn with it as well. She really liked it and wanted the humans to throw it for her to fetch but it was a little hard for them to be throwing around. Silly Tempest. BOL

 photo EJWB_0971_zpsdkl2anrv.jpg

Momster told us that the package says this is good for cleaning your teeth and getting that icky tarter and stuff off of them. We prefer to chew on Nylabone toys instead of having our teeth brushed, LOL.

Oh...one last thing. Louisville Weimaraner Rescue will receive a $20 donation for any NEW customers at Chewy.com making their first purchase if they just use this LINK HERE

In exchange for our review we did receive a free Nylabone toy to test out.

Zanesville Trial - Sunday

A few weekends ago we went back to Zanesville for day 2 of the trial.

This is my standard run and I did something that I NEVER do. I got off the table before I was supposed to. You can hear mom GASP when I do it. BOL. I love keeping my humans on their toes. But on a good note, look at how fast I was moving. Momster has been on a health kick and she walks me 2 miles every day now and I am feeling better and you can tell because I'm moving faster. I think this is the fastest I have ever done my weave poles at a trial.

Here is Tempie's run from Sunday. She didn't get a Q either but she had lots of fun. She is too fast for dadster and he has a hard time keeping up with her, BOL.
