I would like to thank the Wendel family for allowing another Britfeld Weimaraner into their lives and to give Kye, as they are giving to Brit, every opportunity to shine so brightly. I truly feel blessed to know Dan, Kim, Jeremy and Jordan Wendel.
My appreciation to Dustin Brunning for his handling of Kye at select shows.
And last but not least, I extend my appreciation to all the judges who have recognized Kye's true Weimaraner qualities.
News from Dan and Kim -
FANTASTIC news about Kye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were in Wisc these last few days for a Field Trial & Kye got 1st place in the Amateur Walking Derby. Dan ran him & thought he had an excellent run but didn't expect 1st. :) Kye ran against 13 other dogs (14 total). The best news is that it was an All Breed run & it is really hard for weims to win. There were GSPs, Pointers, Vizslas & KYE GOT 1ST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We can't wait to see what he can do when he is older. He ran against older dogs & he is only 16 months old!!
A few words from Debra Meifert of Westend Kennels 31 August 2005 -
Well Kye ran really nice and big. Worked his objectives, even came into experience a big old bull. His point was a bit short. The bird was right in the open and when Kye hit the scent and started to stop he seen the bird, bird flew and Kye took off. I know that if he had pointed nice like we know he does he would have won. Hands down. It was a very large all breed stake, 20 dogs. Fortunately we had the top two dogs, only two Weim's in there, and Zima who would have gone second, went first. She now has her derby points and out of the Weim only derby. It was 8:00 last night when they finally finished and too late to call.
Every one was raving over Kye and how awesome he was to watch. I commented think about how he is going to run once we start working off of horseback.
We are going up this week to do just that. Kye will be running in all of the Weim only derby trials. That boy can run. I think that Dan just lost his hunting dog. Hopefully we will do well in the shows, Myron has got him muscled up and in condition. So I will go to work on him for showing this week in between the field stuff. Poor guy he is really working.
7th on the Top 10 Derby List 2005.
Who knows where he would have finished if he hadn't give the other dogs a 6 month head start . . .
There are exciting plans for Kye and his future. If you would like to know more about this shining star, Stud work or what's in store, please write to Dan and Kim Wendel by e-mail. Or visit their website Winsome Weimaraners.
Foot Note: Sadly Kye's hip results failed despite his Sire and Dam having passing hip results, and he has been neutered.
