Seeing that ad in the paper and deciding to go out and meet Rayne (she was called Bess at the time) was one of the best things I ever decided to do. To accept the challenge of a very smart girl who so many people had given up on and watch her learn to trust me and finally know she was in her forever home is something I will always treasure. Mostly I learned how much fun it could be to do dog sports, to work as a team (well most of the time) , to have great runs, and some not so great runs.
Rayne made me totally fall in love with an amazing breed and I can't imagine my life without a Weim or two.and I can't imagine my life without Rayne. Sadly I now have to face that reality. Rayne was one of the kindest sweetest dogs I have ever had the privilege to have in my life, she could be tough and stubborn oh so stubborn but then sweet and snuggly.. I wouldn't change a thing about her..she was perfect and I learned so much from her. I will always remember our first off leash run when I got her and the joy in her face of just running with Bo and enjoying life..
She will always be in my heart and although there will be others there will never be another Rayne.
I am thankful that Julia and Rayne found each other so many years ago, because I think their love and camaraderie is what has fed Julia's 'addiction' for Weimaraners and for that I along with Koping Weimaraners is thankful. Rayne will be missed by all who's lives she touched. PK
