P!nk in Belton, Texas!!!

Pat and P!nk traveled to Belton, Texas and attended the Stephenville Show Cluster that included the Lone Star Weimaraner Specialties as well as an all breed agility trial. P!nk not only picked up Select points in the breed ring toward working on her Grand Championship, but she completed her Rally Novice title and picked up a Novice FAST Q and Novice Standard Q. P!nk was a delightful little girl to travel with and so proud and pleased with her accomplishments in all of the disciplines she competed in!! Pat also got to hang out and visit with Dana, Susan and a bunch of Win'Weim dogs and owners. Goose as always was delightful to visit with and STUNNING to watch in the show ring!! The Lone Star Weim Club will be hosting the WCA Nationals at this same show site in October 2012 --- it should be tons of fun for all that attend!!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know?
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer).
In 2011, an estimated 23,400 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 5,100 will die of it.
An estimated 190 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 55 will die of it.
On average, 64 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer every day.
Breast cancer incidence rose steadily from 1980 to the early 1990s, partly because of increased mammography screening. Breast cancer death rates have declined in every age group since at least the mid 1980s
