Kaiya's Structure and Conformation
To the left: Shown placing Winners Bitch, Best of Winners, and Best of
Opposite Sex for her first major.
To the right: A lovely shot at full extension. Note her muscle tone.
In a word, Petite. Kaiya is a well balanced, elegant, very feminine dog.
Her coat is medium grey with no white or "dobe markings." It is dense,
short, and thoroughly protects her chest and belly. She doesn't generally
carry an undercoat. Kaiya has a feminine head with a sloping stop. Her
eyes are well spaced, almond shaped, and medium yellow. Kaiya's chest is
a nice combination of show and field types. It is deep, yet better sprung
than more typical show lines. Conformationally, Kaiya is more of the show
type than the field type.
Kaiya's Temperament and Health
In a word, Affectionate. Kaiya is an affectionate, intelligent dog. She
is particular about whom she shows this affection. Win her heart and she's
in your lap. If you are a stranger she's a typical Weimaraner, polite,
yet standoffish. A dominant Weimaraner bitch, Kaiya is occasionally stubborn
and does best then things are 'just so'. For example, she has a favorite
show collar and lead. Put her on anything else and, while she'll show,
it's with a less upbeat attitude. Kaiya learns quickly, much of the time
in a single repetition. She is very, very stable and is not worried by
new or unusual situations. Kaiya is dog competitive. She simply will not
allow another dog to beat her at anything. She must go faster, show better,
work harder than her competition.
There is no known history of hip dysplasia, extra eye lashes, or immuno
deficiency, in this dog or her lines.
Kaiya In the Field
Shown on point on wild birds in Oklahoma
In a word, a Huntress. Kaiya's point is strong and stylish. She not only
points birds, but she finds them. Kaiya has an outstanding nose, often
pointing game from 15 to 20 feet away. She runs a medium to long Gun Dog
range showing intelligent use of wind and cover. Kaiya is a wonderful line
runner, and completes a line before breaking off to continue running. Usually,
she is working the line in the cover itself rather than along the edge
like many line runners. Kaiya is all-breed competitive at the Gun Dog level.
She has an attractive and athletic way of going and carries a high tail.
She is a natural and enthusiastic retriever.
Thoughts about Kaiya's Breeding
This was our gambling litter (hence, Kaiya's registered name, Rushin' Roulette).
Seeking to improve the Dual nature of the Weimaraner breed we bred Benton
to our Group winning Specials bitch, Pippy. Both sire and dam were out
crosses, and the resulting litter was a further out cross. With the broad
genetic base of this litter we simply didn't know what to expect, it was
quite simply, a gamble. We couldn't be more pleased with the results. Of
the six pups, we have bench Champions, hunting companions, obedience and
agility competitors, and, most importantly, solid and reliable children's
companions (three pups went to homes with young children). Kaiya will almost
certainly complete her Dual Championship, and one male from the litter
would have as well but for a change in family circumstances. We couldn't
be prouder of this litter and the happiness they have brought to their
