March 2016 – A League of Her Own

History was made this month when Annie became the first Weimaraner ever to earn an AKC Grand Field Championship title. Annie finished the requirements for that title in fine style too by going runner up out of a field of 77 competitors of all pointing breeds in the AKC National Gun Dog Championship held at the venerable Ames plantation in Tennessee. Annie’s placement there also marks the best performance by a Weimaraner ever at that event. Annie is no stranger to championships, she has also previously twice won the National Weimaraner Association National Championship and has also won both Weimaraner Club of America National and Amateur National Championships. Annie is trained and handled in Open events by trainer Diane Vater and in Amateur events by one of her owners, Frank Sommer. Congratulations to everyone on Team Annie!
