2011 Blue Ribbon Issue: The Grayhart Ads

The most awaited issue of the year, the June Blue Ribbon Issue of The Weimaraner Magazine, (the official publication of the WCA) has arrived.  The Blue Ribbon is the biggest advertising issue for breeders and fanciers and this issue is sent to all AKC Weimaraner judges.  It is the place to showcase your dogs and the issue is kept as a reference book for years to come.  We are very excited to share the Grayhart ads from the 2011 Blue Ribbon which were designed by my extremely talented friend, Sara Beaver of Vbird Photos.  Sara even took all of the photos (except the stack shot) in Jam's ad.  The ad deadline was the end of April and since then, Jam, Bravo's half sister, has earned three new titles: CD, OA and VX.
 We had a total of four pages in the Breeder's Showcase section.  This included the pages for Jam, Bliss (Bravo's littermate), Mia and Bravo.  Mia has earned her 2nd major and now only needs 2 single points to finish her championship.
 It is always so much fun to plan, create and design the ads and of course, to see the finished product.
 Bravo's also had two pages in the New Champion section to celebrate Bravo's finishing.  His photos and ad were done by The Winning Image. Bravo also has new title, Grand Champion or GCH, which was completed after the ad deadline.

Bravo is now a Grand Champion!!!

Hurray for Bravo - the 1st Grayhart Grand Champion!

Congratulations to handler Debbie Hopkins for finishing Bravo's Grand Champion title!  This was accomplished in less than two months after he completed his AKC Championship, with selective specialing and he received GCH points at every show he was shown in, either by going BOB, BOS or Select Dog.

Bravo, (Clay x Trixie), is only 17 months old and is now...GCH Grayhart Crescent's Bravo!

We are very proud of this young dog and look forward to watching him continue in the show ring.
