… Dogs who live at Barrett headquarters …
The below-listed Weimaraners are my personal dogs and, when they’re not on the road in training, they live with me in my (super small, cozy, city) home. As of this writing, there are five of them on the books.
Britta | Barrett’s Master of the House
DOB: March 17, 2009
Britta is a Weimaraner. Maybe. No one really knows. The truth is, she was purchased from a newspaper ad and the “breeder” promised to send the AKC registration in the mail. This was long before we knew how to properly buy a dog. Of course, the papers never came. (A few months later, the phone was disconnected.) But she looks, walks, and talks like a Weimaraner, so we’re sticking to it! Britta is spayed. She has no offspring. Her tail’s too long. Her coat’s too short. She has a good dose of anxiety and broke a tooth once eating her crate. We’re also on kitchen door # 2 because once upon a time, she ran through kitchen door # 1 at full speed. But she is our resident queen and has no problem taking the Auntie Britta role when it comes to raising Friday’s babies. She’ll also play with them, because, you know, Friday is too snotty to entertain her own children. #truestory Seriously though, this is the lady that hooked us into the breed, and the first-born will always hold a special place in our hearts. Britta currently spends her day sunbathing, snoozing, and bossing the others around. Life is good for the resident top dawg.
Friday | GCH Axel’s Reiteralm n’ Gun Run Gal Friday JH
DOB:August 15, 2008
Friday is the matriarch of the Barrett family and came to me from the estate of Virginia Alexander. Friday is also the little devil who is responsible for luring me into Weimaraner competition. [The back-story is that I was just looking for another pet and sister for Britta, and I somehow got talked into taking Friday on the condition that I showed her and then considered breeding her.] In three litters, Friday has blessed me with 23 beautiful puppies that have or will grow up to be just as special as she is. Nowaways, she’s retired and enjoys sunbathing on the deck outside, or snoozing on the sofa while waiting for her next meal. In her spare time, she’s writing a letter to Congress to lobby for a change in standardized dinner-time from 6:00 PM to 2:00 PM. Friday is my heart dog; I can’t begin to tell you how hard I love her, but that’s another story for another day. In the meantime, let me just state for the record that I will forever be thankful to Holly McKnight and Anne Taguchi for allowing my gal Friday to come live with me, and also to Louise Brady, for gracefully handling and finishing Friday’s show career. Friday’s pedigree can be viewed here.
Boulder | BIM GCH CH Knight n’ Barrett’s Pioneer Mountain Man
DOB: June 2, 2013
Career highlights: Best Dog at 2016 WCA Western Maturity, First Place Senior Futurity Dog at 2015 WCA Western Show Futurity, Third Place at 2015 WCA National Field Futurity.
Boulder Man Barrett was my Pick Dog out of the 2013 Max x Friday litter. From the time he was four weeks old, I knew this kid was special. In 2014, he earned his show Championship with three Majors in just six weekends out. A day shy of his first birthday, Boulder went off to Summer Camp with Terry Chandler, Sr. In May 2015, Boulder came home for awhile to make an appearance at his show Futurity. One week before his second birthday, he picked up his first BEST OF BREED ribbon at the Mission Circuit under Judge Clay Coady. In July 2015 Boulder earned his bench Grand Championship as well the First Place Senior Futurity Dog ribbon at the Western Futurity and Maturity in Portland, Oregon. In August 2015, with six breed wins under his belt in 2.5 months, Canine Chronicle had him listed as the #18 show Weimaraner. In September 2015 Boulder was ranked # 5 on the WCA Continuous Derby list, and then in December 2015, Boulder picked up a nice Third Place ribbon at the WCA National Field Futurity in Ardmore, OK. In July 2016, Boulder WON the 2016 WCA Western Best Dog in Maturity ribbon. In September 2017, Boulder earned a very nice Second Place ribbon in the Open Gun Dog class (with 21 starters) at the Sahuaro Brittany Club Field Trial. This was only his second weekend out as a broke dog! Boulder is owned and loved by me when he is at home. At the shows, he is exclusively handled by Robert Scott. When on the road running the field trial circuit, he’s on the Rugerheim string. Note: Boulder is currently on the road with Terry Chandler/Rugerheim Kennels. We expect to see him again this spring in California City, CA at the 2018 WCA Western Classic and Field Futurity. Boulder has his own page here, and his pedigree can be viewed here.
Luna | Touchstone n’ Barrett’s Autobot Moonracer JH NAVHDA NA PRIZE 1 (112)
DOB: August 8, 2015
LunaBot was Purple Girl out of the 2015 Project Mika Autobot litter. In October, I sent her to live with Carlos and Jana so she could “get away from the nest” for a little bit. A few weeks later, Luna was invited by Fox Studios to shoot a scene in a television mini-series, and in February, we caught a glimpse of her onscreen in the final episode of “American Crime Story,” featuring Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson. (We also met Mr. Gooding, and can say with certainty that he’s a very, very nice guy.) In December 2015, Luna traveled over 2,500 miles (with littermate brother Turbo) to see her biological dad (2xNFC/FC ERBENHOF SnS BOOGIE WOOGIE BO) compete in Ardmore, OK at the 2015 WCA NAtional Field Trial. In April 2016, while still under the car of Carlos and Jana, Luna earned a perfect score in her NAVHDA Natural Ability test with Carlos. So far, Luna’s biggest asset is that she has a lot of point. Now, we’re looking to see if she has any run. This winter, Luna is in training with Firestorm Bird Dogs/Warren Eizman in Anza, CA. Luna’s pedigree can be viewed here.
Mango | Smokey Topaz n’ Barrett’s Santa Margarita Peak, Major show pointed
DOB: May 1, 2017
The latest addition to the Barrett gang, Mango was my stud fee puppy out of Jim and Debbie Ebert’s 2017 Boulder x Lenka Mountain Peak Nine litter. So far, we know she’s beautiful, willful, spunky, playful, likes to climb out of xpens, and LOVES her pigeon and quail. I’m absolutely tickled that Mango also displays some “classic Barrett traits” such as flopping her head over her people, nooking, and crossing her paws. She also displays her biological father’s trademark cowlick, which runs vertically between her eyes. As of this writing, we have no idea what her future holds. Show? Hunt? Field? NAVHDA? Maybe all of the above? In December 2017, Mango competed at her very first dog show at the Winter Specialty in Ardmore, Oklahoma, and walked away with a very nice Reserve Winners Bitch ribbon. (Yay baby girl!!!) By mid-February 2018, she had earned both Major wins. More to come from this little youngster!
… The Kids …
At the moment, we’re also growing out a trio of youngsters with the hopes that they’ll become outstanding examples of the Weimaraner breed.
Blaise Pascal | CH Trax Blaise Pascal JH
DOB: November 8, 2016
Blaise Pascal (GCH Camelot’s I’m a Travelin’ Man x Trax Jet Stream FDJ) is one of my young Dual Champion-prospect boys from Shirley/Trax Weimaraners. In June 2017, he made his debut as a show dog at the Southland Weimaraner Club Show Specialty in Ventura, CA, and came home from the weekend with both of his Majors, a Best of Opposite Sex in Puppy Sweepstakes ribbon, and two Best Puppy rosettes. Over the summer, he spent a bit of time at Terry Chandler’s Camp Snoopy, but then came home in the fall for a little bit of a break. By Spring 2018, BP had earned his bench championship and is now back at Camp Snoopy for Round 2 of Bird Dog Camp. Blaise Pascal has his own page, here.
Even Steven | Trax Even Steven, field pointed
DOB: November 26, 2016
Even Steven (CH Trax Edenrock One Night Stand x Reiteralm Legacy Von Trax) is my other young boy from Shirley/Trax Weimaraners. I knew immediately that when I saw his mother, Feist, running at the field trials that someday, I wanted to own one of her kids. I spent the next year pretty much BEGGING Shirley Nilsson in Canada for one of these puppies, and eventually, down came Steven!!! Spring 2017 found us many-a-times at the local Prado Regional Park swimming in the pond (this kid’s a natural swimmer), or training with birds in one of the fields. In September 2017, Steven made his Field Trial debut and came home with a Third Place ribbon in Open Puppy from the Sahuaro Brittany Club, and a Fourth Place ribbon in Open Puppy from the Desert GSP Club. Two months later, he WON the Open Puppy stake at the Las Cruces field trial. Yay Steven!!! In December 2017, Steven made an appearance in the Open Puppy stake at the WCA National Field Trial in Ardmore, Oklahoma. He had a great time, but fell out of the ribbons. In 2018 at the WCA Field Futurity, he had an amazing run but, unfortunately, went birdless. After another successful Summer Camp under his belt, Steven will be running in Open Derby stakes this fall while he prepares to run in the National Futurity in Ardmore, Oklahoma.
Tearin | Barrett Tearin’ offtha Two Trax
DOB: April 5, 2018
Tearin is our stud fee puppy out of a litter sired by Trax Blaise Pascal. Bred for both show and field, we’re going to grow her out a bit and see if that’s really her path.
This girl knows her name, has excellent recall (treat or no treat), loads, crates, has an on and an off switch, redirects easily, knows how to keep herself busy (doesn’t need us to entertain herself), she’s happy to sit in her crate quietly when she wakes up from a nap and just “chill” until someone notices to let her out, sleeps overnight, isn’t inclined to talk, eats like she’s a contestant in a pie-eating contest, enjoys taking herself on solo adventures on and off the property (at nearby trails and open spaces), but still knows where home base or her humans are, and is quick to recover from bad experiences, like the time she stepped on cactus and got pricked on her feet, and then shrugged it off as soon as we un-stuck her. Look forward to leaning more about this little lady. 😍 Thank you Team Trax for this little bugger!!!
… Team Barrett Weimaraners …
Since I live in a small house in the city, it’s not ideal/smart/possible for me to “keep a puppy” out of ever litter I produce. That’s where “Team Barrett” comes in. Team Barrett consists of people who own Barrett dogs and either do great things with them, or they allow me to borrow the dogs back and do great things on their behalf, all in the name of proving how outstanding these Weimaraners are. As adults, these dogs are evaluated for health, structure and temperament, and in some (but not all) cases, they’ll contribute to the overall Barrett breeding program, their owners’ breeding programs, or both.
Gracie | Ch Barrett’s Lady Grey (4 pts towards Field CH)
DOB: April 15, 2014
Owner: Erin Smith
Gracie was “Lilac” out of the 2014 Max x Friday litter and, when at home, lives with her mamma Erin and sister Bug. When on the road, she hangs out with Terry Chandler, Sr. and her brother, Boulder. In April 2015, Gracie became the first-ever Barrett dog to be field pointed by winning an Open Puppy stake at a Northern New Mexico Brittany Trial. In April 2015, Gracie picked up another Puppy Point with her First Place ribbon at the WCA Western Classic in Madras, Oregon. By June 2015, Gracie had also picked up a few show points, once even going Best of Opposite Sex over Specials for her first Major (at the Del Monte Kennel Club shows in Carmel, CA). In July 2015, Gracie earned the Second Place Junior Futurity Bitch ribbon at the Western Futurity and Maturity in Portland, Oregon. In December 2015, she picked up a nice Second Place ribbon in the Open Derby stake at the WCA National Field Trial in Ardmore, OK. In June 2016, Gracie picked up her Third Major and finished her show career. Currently the only show- and field- pointed Barrett dog, Erin and I have very high expectations for little Miss Gracie, who is currently with Terry Chandler/Rugerheim Kennels in New Mexico. Gracie has her own page here, and her pedigree can be viewed here.
Bug | GGH Barrett n’ Star’s Flying Spectacle NSD
DOB: October 8, 2014
Owner: Erin Smith
Bug was “LadyBug” out of the 2014 Torque x Friday litter (yeah, we really did go there), and lives with Erin and Gracie. I have a special place in my heart for this one because not only is she the spitting image of Mamma Friday in the face, but she has Friday’s dark coat, too (which I really like). In September 2015, Bug and Erin made their debut in the ring together. In November 2015, Bug earned her Novice Shooting Ratings title! In December 2015, we took her to Ardmore, and Bug competed in the first-ever Walking Puppy stake at the WCA Field Trial. No ribbons, but lots of applause for being part of the inaugural group. In February 2016, Bug WON the 2016 WCA Western Classic Field Futurity, and in July, she followed that up with a Fourth Place in Intermediate Bitch ribbon in the 2016 WCA Western Futurity/Maturity. In Spring 2017, Bug was leased out to Louise Brady of Star Weimaraners and delivered three healthy, beautiful girls. Next up for Bug: Expecting her next litter in Summer/Autumn 2018! Bug has her own page here, and her pedigree can be viewed here.
Jaeger | Ch Barrett’s Star Zirkusdirector
DOB: October 8, 2014
Owner: Alex Bolewski
Jaeger was “Froggie” out of the 2014 Torque x Friday litter, and serves as a personal service dog for owner Alex in Tennessee. At 6 months and 10 days old, Jaeger picked up a Winners dog AND Best of Opposite Sex ribbon over three Specials under Judge Terry Stacey for his first Major. By July 2015, Jaeger had easily finished his bench championship under only eight judges and with FOUR MAJORs. Nowadays, Jaeger is his dad’s best kickaround buddy, getting to come to work with him in Tennessee. Jaeger’s pedigree can be viewed here.
Stark | Ch Barrett N Touchstone’s Star Circus Monkey JH
DOB: October 8, 2014
Owner: Carlos and Jana DeTevis
Stark was “Monkey” out of the 2014 Torque x Friday litter, and lives with Carlos, Jana, and his canine sisters, Hannah and Sage in Chino, CA. In September 2015, Stark finished his bench championship in Primm, Nevada, and just a couple of months later in December 2015, passed all four legs at the Vizsla Club’s double double hunt test to earn his Junior Hunter title. In July 2016, Stark earned a Fourth Place Intermediate Futurity Dog at the 2016 WCA Western Futurty/Maturity. These days, Stark’s in training with his pappa Carlos to become a fine hunting companion. When not training, they also go “hiking” for quail in the local desert. Next, maybe we’ll see him earn a SH or MH title?! Stark’s pedigree can be viewed here.
Ticon | Touchstone n’ Barrett’s Autobot Villain, NAVHDA PA PRIZE I (110)
DOB: August 8, 2015
Owner: Halit Akgun
Ticon was Orange Boy out of the 2015 Project Mika Autobot litter. At 8 weeks of age, he was placed with Halit in Orange County. By October, Ticon was out rock-climbing his with his dad, in November, he saw his first snow, and in December, he had his first big road trip to Utah. In January 2016, we began putting him on birds to get him ready for Puppy Stakes at the local field trials. In February 2016, Ticon was entered in his first field trial stake and did a respectable job. A couple months later, he earned a Prize I (110) in the NAVHDA Natural Ability test with Halit. In Summer 2016, Ticon spent Summer Camp with Kim Sampson in Utah. In late Autumn, Ticon was sent to Diane/AlphaDog and made an appearance at the 2016 National Field Trial in Ardmore. Ticon came home with a Third Place ribbon in the Open Derby! In January 2017, Diane steered him to a First Place ribbon in the Open Derby stake at the Grand Canyon Brittany Club in Arizona. A month later, Ticon earned a Fourth Place ribbon in the Open Derby stake at the 2017 WCA Western Classic. He also picked up a Second Place in his Field Futurity. These days, he’s at home with Halit enjoying his daily off-leash hikes and adventures in the great outdoors. Ticon’s pedigree can be viewed here.
Turbo | Touchstone n’ Barrett’s Autobot Smokescreen, NAVHDA NA PRIZE 3 (102)
DOB: August 8, 2015
Owner: Diane Vater
Turbo was Yellow Boy out of the 2015 Project Mika Autobot litter. It was clear from the get-go that this boy was special. In October, he left the nest to stay with Erin and Bug up in the mountains. In December, he traveled over 2,500 miles (with littermate sister Luna) to see his biological dad (2xNFC/FC ERBENHOF SnS BOOGIE WOOGIE BO) compete in Ardmore, OK at the 2015 WCA NAtional Field Trial. In April 2016, he earned a Prize III in the NAVHDA Natural Ability test with Garret. Turbo is a two-time NWA Open Derby winner, and is also Winner of the 2016 WCA Western Field Futurity. Ticon is being exclusively trained and handled by Diane Vater of Alpha Dog Kennels in PA. Turbo’s pedigree can be viewed here.
Riley | Ch Barrett’s Love Bug
DOB: February 15, 2016
Owner: Ric Zappala and Anthony Rojas
Riley was Black Boy out of the 2016 Royce x Seren litter holds the Barrett record for QUICKEST dog to earn his Show Championship. In just about four weekends, Riley finished with THREE majors, out of the 9-12 class. In June 2017, we brought him out for the first time as a Special at the Pasadena Kennel Club shows, and he earned a GROUP 4 with his BFF handler, Robert Scott. This also makes him the first group-placing Barrett dog. Riley is currently taking the spring off, but we’ll be bringing him back out in the summer for a series of shows.
Graham | Barrett’s Love is a Happy Home, Major show pointed
DOB: February 15, 2016
Owner: Joel and Kamie Hendricks
As a youngster, Graham was the Blue Boy out of the 2016 Royce x Seren litter and known online as “The Jumbo Jet.” When the time came to send everyone home at eight weeks, I just couldn’t part with this little guy. In the spring, Graham went to stay with Mara (Ellie’s owner) while I had Ellie at my house for a string of shows. With Mara’s report that Graham was a lovely lovely boy, the search was ON to find him a forever home that would let me borrow him back for a string of dog shows if he grew up to be a beautiful boy. Graham was eventually placed with the Hendricks family in Huntington Beach. In March 2017, Graham made his show debut in Vallejo, CA, and came home with a Major win and a few single points. We’ll bring him back out in Summer 2018 to see if we can finish his show career.
Tennessee | CH HighPoint’s Shotgun Boogie to Barrett
DOB: May 4, 2016
Owner: Garret Andersen
I’ve waited a long time for this baby girl to join the Barrett gang. Tennessee, or “TennTenn,” is an incredibly sweet girl who comes to me from friend and breeder, Lani Jones of HighPoint Weimaraners. A beautiful girl, Tenn finished her show career with THREE Major wins!! We’re hopeful that Tenn will someday contribute beauty, size and structure to the overall Barrett breeding program. Her favorite thing at home is to go on her twice daily runs with her dad and brother Blue. Next up, maybe a couple of tries at getting her AKC Junior Hunter legs. Tennessee’s pedigree can be viewed here.
Sookie | Barrett’s Independence Inn (field pointed)
DOB: July 2, 2016
Owner: Jason and Sasha Robertson
Sookie was “Pink Girl” out of the 2016 Rossi x Mika litter. My “pick of the litter” ended up with friends and neighbors, the Robertson family, who also own Marshall out of the 2016 Royce x Seren litter. Although still young, it’s CLEAR to everyone who’s met her that this girl is sum’n special. With zero training, Sookie easily stands her birds from 30 yards out, all day long, and with a 12 o’clock tail. Sookie is exclusively trained by Terry Chandler/Rugerheim Kennels, and currently has an Open Derby win under her belt from the 2018 Desert GSP Field Trial. Sookie’s pedigree can be viewed here.
Baja | Barrett’s Stars n’ Stripes JH NSD
DOB: July 2, 2016
Owner: Charles and Kristi Salse
Baja was “Orange Boy/Arnold” out of the 2016 Rossi x Mika litter. From Day ONE, Baja’s parents were committed to training him and handling him. In just a couple of weekends in February 2017, Baja earned his Junior Hunter title. He also has his Novice Shooting Dog title from a WCA ratings test. In Spring 2017, Baja also earned a perfect FOUR score in every single NAVHDA NA test category… except the pointing one, in which he didn’t earn a score. (Bummer!!!) But that’s okay, he eventually earned a Prize II a few months later. In February 2018, with hardly any training at all, Baja and his dad came out to the WCA Western Classic and Field Futurity, and WON!!! Next up is formal training to see if we can unlock some of that hidden talent. As time permits, Baja will also be making a few laps around the local show rings. Baja’s pedigree can be viewed here.
Ronin | Barrett’s American Patriot JH (Show pointed)
DOB: July 2, 2016
Owner: Brian and Trinity Osborn
Ronin was “Blue Boy” out of the 2016 Rossi x Mika litter. This kid has it all. Parents who are devoted to him, a community who supports him, a nose that directs him, and legs that move him. Passing four legs to get his Junior Hunter title was easy. Evidently, so was running at the field trial in the Open Puppy Stakes… all with his mom, Trinity. Because that’s not enough, Ronin also plays in the show ring, and has show/bench points to boot!! Late this year, we’ll get him geared up to participate in his National Field Futurity. Ronin’s pedigree can be viewed here.
Cowboy | CH Barrett’s Knight-Time Rock n’ Roll Cowboy
DOB: August 17, 2016
Owner: Holly McKnight and John Nelssen
Cowboy was “Orange Boy” out of the 2016 Boulder x Seren litter. My “pick of the litter,” I sent him to Holly in Autumn 2017, so I could buy myself some more to figure out where I wanted to put him. Well, whaddayaknow?! It turns out that Holly and John’s house was where he belonged. 🙂 In Spring 2017, Cowboy made his show debut, and by September had finished his bench championship by going Best of Breed over Specials (!!!). In true dual form, Cowboy also has some juvenile field trial placements to his credit. Next up is gearing up for his National Field Futurity in Ardmore, Oklahoma. Cowboy’s pedigree can be viewed here.
Elleven | CH Barrett’s Primorial Princess
DOB: August 17, 2016
Owner: Brent and Amanda Saxton
Elleven was Navy Girl out of the 2016 Boulder x Seren litter. I knew early on the girl was special, so I “kept her close.” Elleven spent a lot of time in her younger months bunking with different friends while I sorted out an insane work schedule, other dogs, field trial season, and a (big) move.
Over the winter, I sent Elleven to crash with Brent and his family for a bit while I worked on finding him a Barrett puppy. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans so after we learned Bug wasn’t pregnant, it took me awhile to find that right puppy for Brent. When I thought I finally did, Brent pretty much said, “the right puppy already lives here…” so Elleven never came back.
Elleven finished her Show Championship in just seven weekends out, and with a total of FOUR MAJORS (Coyote Hills 3pt, SWC Specialty 3pt, Los Encinos Kennel Club 4pt, and Antelope Valley Kennel Club 4pt). This won’t be the last we see of Miss Elleven as Brent and his family have some exciting plans for her. Elleven sports a beautiful headpiece, and has one of the sweetest personalities out of all my Boulder kids. Her pedigree can be viewed here.
Kelibek | PM’s Knight of the Butterfly
DOB: March 2017
Owner: Jeanette Akcayoglu
Kelibek (PM and Knights breeding of 2017 Timber x Sophie) was bred by Dawna/PM Weimaraners and Holly/Knights Weimaraners and comes to the greater Barrett family as a prospective hunting specialist.
Owner Jeannette is a friend I originally met through CalWEAR. Once upon a time, she adopted a stray Weimaraner (fun fact: this was FIRST dog CalWEAR ever placed) and loved him until the day he crossed the rainbow bridge. After Kopek, Jeannette asked me to find her a Barrett dog. Since I didn’t have any litters of my own last year, I trusted Holly to find Jeannette a puppy for me. Enter Kelibek! Her parents are proven hunting dogs, so I suspected this girl might have some natural bird-sense. I didn’t, however, expect to see so much drive, desire, and RUN on her first day out on birds. The Garmin had her tracked over 850 yards, chasing after pigeon.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that maybe this isn’t a fluke, and that sometime in the near-term future, we can run her off of horseback.
Mattie | Smokey Topaz N Barrett’s Epic Matterhorn Adventure (Show Pointed)
DOB: May 1, 2017
Owner: Tom and Kelly Feore
Mattie came out of Jim and Debbie Ebert’s 2017 Boulder x Lenka Mountain Peak Nine litter. Litter-mate sister to Mango, Mattie lives with her half-brother, Barkley in Glendale, Arizona. In June 2018, Mattie traveled up to the 2018 WCA National Specialty Show and earned a very nice Best of Opposite Sex in Puppy Sweepstakes ribbon in a very large entry. Still a youngster, Mattie is just getting started; we’ll be hitting up the local Arizona and California show circuit in Autumn 2018 and Spring 2019.
Ruby | Smokey Topaz n’ Barrett’s Ruby Mountain
DOB: May 1, 2017
Owner: Mark and Kim Urbani
Ruby came out of Jim and Debbie Ebert’s 2017 Boulder x Lenka Mountain Peak Nine litter. Litter-mate sister to Mango,Ruby lives with her human parents in Chowchilla, California. Ever a social butterfly, Ruby spends her day knocking on doors of neighbors up and down the street to see if her dog friends can come out and play. With her dad as an avid gardener, Ruby has also taken to eating all the berries in the yard. In June 2018, Ruby traveled up to the 2018 WCA National Specialty Show and got as far as a First Place ribbon in the 12-18 Bitch class in a nice-sized entry. Still a youngster, Ruby is just getting started; we’ll be hitting up the local California show circuit in Autumn 2018 and Spring 2019.
Zane | Smokey Topaz n’ Barrett’s Mongollon Rim JH (Major Show Pointed)
DOB: May 1, 2017
Owner: Lance Larson
Zane came out of Jim and Debbie Ebert’s 2017 Boulder x Lenka Mountain Peak Nine litter. At just six months of age, Zane and his dad earned their AKC Junior Hunter title in Buckeye, Arizona, with four straight passes!!! His scores were also mostly in the 9s with a couple of 10s. At 6 months and 19 days of age, Zane is also the youngest-ever Barrett dog to have earned the Junior Hunter title. A special THANK YOU to owner Lance Larson for committing to do “lots of fun stuff” with his puppy. In his first six months, Zane had been out hunting for pigeon, quail, and pheasant. In May 2018, Zane earned a Best in Puppy Sweepstakes ribbon at the Albuquerque Weimaraner Specialty. We have no doubt this is just the beginning of his very bright future!
Soba | Trax Barrett Call Me Buckwheat
DOB: February 17, 2018
Owner: Beth Worrell
Soba is our stud fee puppy out of a litter sired by Trax Blaise Pascal. His mom, Reese, is a bold, adventuresome, agile, sweet, and high drive in equal measure. A good looker too, she won Best Puppy in Sporting Group at 6 months old her first time in the ring and finished her AKC Championship with a Best of Breed win. Reese has simply tremendous talent in the field with high style on birds leading her to easily complete the requirements for a Field Championship thereby becoming the first AKC Dual Champion Weimaraner in quite some years. We’re hoping that little Soba will be just as successful as his mom. Soba lives with Bob and Beth Worrell in Lancaster, CA and will primarily be an agility dog. Of course, we’ll also play the conformation, NAVHDA, hunt test and field trial game as well!
Gemma | Trax N Barrett’s Emerald Rock Star
DOB: May 16, 2018
Owner: Kristina R. Rihela
Little Emerald is our stud fee puppy out of a litter sired by Trax Blaise Pascal. Her mom is Sparkle, a spunky, bold and clever girl who would retrieve all day long if you let her. Sparkle competes in a variety of performance events, has a very strong pointing instinct with simply tremendous style on point and she has been steadied to wing and shot in preparation for senior level field events. We’re hopeful that Gemma will be just as successful as her mom!
Gemma lives with Kristina and her family in Phoenix, AZ. First and foremost, she’s going to be the family dog. She will enjoy swimming and playing with her human sister (13) and brother (11). In her spare time, she’ll take a few laps around the show ring and maybe a few passes at the local hunt tests. In the fall, she’ll also accompany her dad on local bird hunts. Eventually she will join her Mom on desert hikes and runs.
