NZ Ch/Eng Sh Ch/Irish Ch Carnmellis Hot Dikkety Dog At Gunalt wins 2011 UK WEIMARANER OF THE YEAR.


In The Beginning
Tikka, our first Weimaraner was purchased in 1982 as a pet and it wasn't until 1983 that Tikka was taken to a ribbon parade at which she won a ribbon.  With this, I was hooked and in next to no time Tikka became Ch Lady Tikka of Nimbus.  Tikka won a Reserve of Group.  From her first litter she produced a lovely boy Ch Carnmellis Acclaim (Ben) who became our first home bred champion and did extremely well in the ring being one of the early Weimaraners to gain a group placement.  We had a go at agility and field trialling with Ben and he enjoyed both of these activities.

The Growing Years
In 1987 we purchased Aust Ch Bromhund Ellice from the Mayhews.  Gretal went on to make breed history in being the first Weimaraner in New Zealand to win an All Breeds Best In Show at a Championship Show.  She won three Best In Shows, thus becoming the first Weimaraner to be come a Grand Champion.  At the age of 8 she also passed her Qualifying Certificate in the field.  She was graded Excellent by Dr Werner Petrie and after seeing her working in the field, he said of all the dogs he had seen working on the day that Gretal was the one he would take home.

Where We are Going
In our endeavour to improve on what we already have, we will be using some of the semen that we have had stored away for many years.  Our current puppies are from the well performed BIS/BISS Ch Carnmellis Loads A Fun who is a Gretal son.

We will be using more of our stored semen in the future.
