It was great to spend sometime with Magda and Kris from Fala Love'a Weimaraners, Kobie and Ronnie and Ginger and to meet so many other breeders everyone was so friendly and so enthusiastic about our wonderful breed.

I thought the dogs where just lovely all the breeders all over Europe are doing a great job so well done.
