Sorry for the long delay in posts but life is very busy at the moment so here’s my round up so far!
14th March Fen was given a general anaesthetic and we X-rayed her hips for the BSAVA hip score scheme her mum and dad have a great score so I was hoping to equally or improve after all that’s what breeding is all about, I am please to say that she has improved and her score is 3/2 which is a total hip score of 5 (moss is 5/3 = 8) so very happy with that. I also made the decision to score her elbows, I didn’t think for a second there would be a problem and the Weimaraner as a breed does not need to have elbow scored as they do not have elbow problems but that was the reason I did it. Fen is my first true Meinweg line so I want to keep an eye on the elbows to ensure I don’t start with the problem. Her results came back with a score of 0/0 which I am very pleased is a total of 0 – yeah Meinweg’s.
The working test season has started and apart from a very few practice sessions (feel very quality that I have not had Fen out more – Bev and Lexi have put me to shame as she is out most days!) I have to say Fen has held her own. We entered her first test on the 1st April and I was so proud that Fen came away with 5th I was even more proud that Bev’s hard work has paid off and she took a place card and got 4th Yeah well done team Meinweg.
A few more training sessions for Fen is now n place and we go out at least three times a week to throw a few dummies.
The puppies turned 15 months on the 10th April – I can’t believe how quick the time has flown by.
I am very pleased with Bev and Lexi as this weekend they have both passed their Bronze good citizen award, so both Fen and Lexi need to start thinking about their silver award!
Hopefully Bev will send her update for Lexi and if the rest of you want to let us know how your getting on please feel free as I love to hear from you.
Sorry it was just a quick one but time pressing and need to get on
Take care and thinking of you all, till next time Marie xxx
