Er.), Was buried in a tomb near Saggary. During its excavation it was discovered many things, among them – a dish featuring ivisskoy greyhound.

Why Orchid Flower Bud Loss?

Posted: 27 Apr 2011 07:45 PM PDT

1orchid flower plaihari 01 Why Orchid Flower Bud Loss?

Seeing a small protrusion appeared from the body of our orchids we may have often experienced. But it would be very happy if the bulge had grown into a small bunches of flowers with petals that lined the candidate along the bunches of flowers. After day after day passed by, prospective bud growing and …. 1-2 fruits candidate suddenly florets yellow and fall off … .!!?? although some other candidates successfully grown bud and bloom, but inwardly there is a sense of curiosity, why it happened ….

There are many factors that could cause the collapse of the candidate before the flowers bloom. Here I extract from my friends on the discussion mailing list about the loss of orchid flower orchid:

  • The first flower that appears from the results of orchid tissue culture in general, losing some potential interest, but it sometimes is only a short length of clusters and bring a little bud. This is because new plants enter the generative phase the first time in their life cycle, so that metabolic hormones as well as accumulation of ATP (energy) is still not perfect.
  • Lack of light can cause hair loss. When the light is too low then the rate of photosynthesis is also low, so that food reserves are acquired only a little. When stimulated fertilizing plants with formulations for flowering, the plant physiological stimulated to enter the stage where the generative phase is more dominant. Consequently with the existing food reserves, the orchid remains determined to bring flowers. Finally, after the bunches are formed, usually of short bunches of flowers, and lots of falling interest candidate. This happens because the flowers candidates receive less food and energy supplies. Candidate interest is also a living tissue that requires energy and cell material.
  • Drought due to high temperature is also one reason why candidates fall flowers. Why? because at high temperatures the evaporation of water was too high. Reserve the water (moisture) in minimal media will quickly disappear due to evaporation. Evaporation does not only happen in the media (evaporation) but also occur on the surface of the orchid plant itself (transpiration). When the water evaporation takes place continuously, the plant will lose a lot of water in his cell. The organ was first exposed to the ill effects of declining water levels in the cell is young tissue (meristem) as candidates for flower bud, so that the prospective bud cells will shrink and the network looks wrinkled and eventually fall.
  • Sudden temperature changes. A sudden drastic temperature changes can cause sudden physiological changes such as decreased enzymatic activity in the plant body. Enzyme activity is strongly influenced by temperature. The decrease of this enzymatic activity will lead to the effect of “stress” on orchid plants so that the various symptoms such as leaf yellowing and loss, etc. of candidates fall flowers. Level optimum temperature for enzyme activity varies greatly depending on the species. In addition, for the highland orchids have a candidate in a state of bud, then suddenly brought to the lowlands, the evaporation of water in the body of the plant will dramatically increase, so that the sensitive organs of plants (potential bud, root tips, etc.) will shrink and wither. Be careful to make orchids that have a potential bud and taken away and the long journey by car or air-space ac hot and stuffy, it is feared when exiting the car, the plant will be “shocked” by sudden temperature changes.
  • Concentrations of foliar fertilizer that is too thick. The concentration of fertilizer is too dense than a negative impact on other parts of plants, florets bungapun candidate is also very sensitive to damage. If liquid manure is the leaves that are too concentrated on prospective flowers then, are concentrated liquid will easily penetrate the cell wall because of the candidate flowers are a young network is still thin cell walls. After penetrating wall sel then concentrated liquid will cause uncontrolled osmosis, so that the cell fluid would come out of the cell and plasmolysis occurs. Cell membrane will be wrinkled and damaged so that eventually the cell will die. From the exterior, will occur in the future drying flowers and then fall out.
  • The invasion by flies most likely a kind of imago adult insects like fruit flies or butterflies that lay their eggs into the bud so that the larvae will eat the bud, or the flies X had to suck fluid from the cells prospective bud.
  • Lice attack elephants. Elephant louse has a habit of “taste-taste” network network she suction fluid young to his cell. In addition, adult fleas elephants also perform the same ritual to determine the exact position for the baby dear. After gaining the right position he would drill a passage to lay their eggs. Sections of young flowers is one of the favorite part of this infestation. Pas interview, said he still feels “sweet”.
  • Disease attack. Attack the disease is generally a secondary effect due to environmental factors that support. For example, a too high humidity, air circulation is not smooth, the slits on the wet bud candidate (for a long time). All of these things would excite the disease to penetrate into the young tissues of the candidate flowers which incidentally is a young network that is still “soft” and sensitive to physiological disorders.
  • Effect of chemical ingredients such as hormone growth regulators, etc.. The use of inappropriate can cause an endogenous hormonal imbalance in the body of the plant. This will continue on the interference with the enzymatic metabolism in plants, so it will affect on cell division and the provision of energy for plant metabolism. It can also cause an increase in ethylene hormone that causes hair loss and possible candidates for flowers.

Two gorgeus English Setter puppies playing outdoor

English Setter dog is a strong and intelligent dog, English Setter dog is a gun dog, English Setter dog is abeautiful dog, English Setter dog is playful and energetic dog.

Connoisseurs of the breed argue that he appeared in England over 400 years ago. Some of the earliest written sources show that the English Setter originated from older types of Spanish land spaniels. However, Hans Bol in his book “Hunting for quail, simple, and falconry, written in 1582, gives very definite and clear evidence that the rocks pointers and spaniels are already at that time were quite different.
In the records of British hunters of past centuries, there are allegations that the English Setter – a descendant of the Spanish gun-dog, a large water spaniel and springer spaniel, through careful selection it has acquired the ability to find and make a point over the game in open spaces. By studying the illustrations in old books, it is clear that the setter-spaniel was very beautiful dog, many dogs head was much longer and the shape was close to the classic proportions, in contrast to the actual spaniels, in others the head was short, with no clearly delineated the profile of typical for today’s setters. Besides, the old setters hair was quite wavy and curly, especially on the thighs. That is, even the earliest written sources have not always agreed in opinion as to the origin of the breed.
The largest contribution to the development of the modern breed of setter, no doubt, belongs to Edward Laveraku, who in 1825 bought the Reverend Father A. Harrison, dog, Ponto and Old Moll. Reverend Harrison for 35 years maintained the purity of the breed. From these two dogs Laverak, skillfully using inbreeding, received excellent English Setter Prince, Kauntess, Nelly and

The first exhibition of English Setters was held January 28, 1859 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and since these exhibitions have been held all over England, gaining increasing popularity. In 1874, Mr. Laverak sold a pair of setters, Charles X. Raymond from the city of Morris Plains, New Jersey. Over the next ten years the breed has spread to the United States. At the same time in the U.S. and Canada was imported type English setters grown RL Pyurselem Lyuelinom. As regards the so-called lyue-Sakhalinsk type should say that while in England in the heyday was the type of Laveraka, Lyuelin bought some of his best exhibition of dogs and poured them into “an entirely new blood.” He tied them to the setter, acquired in the north of England in Mr. Statter and Sir Vincent Corbett. Representatives of this species was called Duke Rebs by name two of the most prominent pioneers of the type. The results were not long in coming, the dogs with fresh blood worked perfectly on field trials, covering the entire sector of search, “scrubbing” it clean. Their fame had reached America, the hunters in different areas of the United States and Canada have bought a lot of dogs, and so this type of rock is firmly established across the Atlantic

English Setter dog has friendly nature, English Setter dog is an excellent companion, but English Setter dog requares long walks.

Perhaps the most notable name among the working dog breeds English setters in America – a Count Noble. This dog has got at Lyuelina Dave Sanborn of Dowling, Michigan, but after hunting with him in the prairies are so disillusioned that he was on his return to England, persuaded his BF Wilson of Pittsbur-ha. After the death of Count Sanborn passed into the hands of Wilson, who has demonstrated outstanding abilities of their pets throughout the United States from coast to coast. Now the stuffed dog exhibited at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, who attends many hunters.
English Setter has retained its popularity in the U.S. mainly due to their working qualities and beauty. As a result, a reasonable selection in breeding improved, its representatives can be found at all shows and field trials. Gentle, friendly nature of the English setter with his intelligence and beautiful aristocratic good looks made him a universal favorite. He quickly and firmly attached to the owner and is an excellent companion, but English Setter requires long walks, so keep it better in the suburbs rather than in the city

Gordon Setter dog playing in the backyard

Gordon Setter dog is a good huntingn dog, Gordon Setter dog is strong and fast dog, Gordon Setter dog has large size, strong and muscular composition.

Beauty, brains, well-developed instinct – that features a beautiful black and tan Setter from Scotland, whose breeding lines date back to at least 1620. That’s when Markham – the writer of the time – gave praise to the black with a brownish-yellow hunting dog with a low stand, “which is” best able to carry a heavy work. ” Black and tan (sometimes black and white and tan) bsh setter for many decades, very popular with the Scottish hunters, but the fame he got through the fourth Duke of Gordon in the 1820′s. Talking about his setter, one of the writers speak of them as modern hunter: “Castle Gordon Setters are usually easy to train because they are natural born hunters. They are not too quick search, but they are very hardy and can be smoothly and securely work from morning till night. They have first-class feeling and rarely make mistakes in the search. If they make a stand, you can be sure that in that place sit the birds. ” Later, renowned expert on hunting dogs Idstoun said: “I have not seen the best setters, rather than black & tan.
Admiring the magnificent appearance Setter-Gordon and its excellent working qualities, George Blunt in 1842, imported from Castle Gordon to America a couple of manufacturers – Rack and Rachel. Their images, donated by Daniel Webster, sealed black piebald male with curly hair and black & tan female. In subsequent years, imported dogs from Britain and the Scandinavian countries, as well as an improved type of rock in the United States allowed Setter Gordon’s popularity as pets and Retriever, especially in the period when the killed game were sold in the markets and therefore a good hunting dog is highly appreciated. In 1891, Henry Malcolm founded the American club-Gordon setter, although AKC officially recognized the breed until the following year.
With the advent of field-testing as a form of competition in popularity of the breed began to decline, as the habit of thoroughly searching the area and an unwillingness to depart far from the owner put him at a disadvantage where the required speed limit your search. Nevertheless, Gordon did not know his equal for true hunting.
Currently, when field tests are carried out several clubs from the Gordon Setter strive for greater speed and range of search, while retaining their inherent methodical and reliability

As a rule, exhibition champions are regularly used for hunting and work well in the field, and the winners of field tests are successfully exposed. Oft-quoted remark that the color of the Scottish setter makes it  in the field, without a doubt, belongs to those who have never hunted with him. On the background of faded autumn grass or early snow black dog stands out. Are difficult to Scottish setter is just after dusk, but then it becomes unsafe to shoot.
Gordon – a setter that has the distinctive characteristic properties of rocks and only superficially resembles the English and Irish setter. On field trials using a smaller (but not bednokostny) vnutriporodny type, usually do well at shows larger dogs. The official breed standard permissible height at the withers varies widely, primarily because hunters in different parts of the country, adapting to the terrain, choose a type of dog. However, all agree that Gordon should be elegant handsome – with a silky shiny hair, bright mahogany tan, with thick feathering on the feet and fun to hold the tail. He has a perfectly fashioned, a little heavy head with low-set ears and an intelligent, expressive eyes. Relatively large size, strong and muscular composition and characteristic gait give Gordon that endurance that is necessary in its constant quest for days to work in the field.
And hunters and pet lovers are attracted to Gordon Setter his devotion to all family members. Suspicious of uninvited guests, he lives to be with the owners, and not trying to make friends with the first counter. This almost fanatical devotion did Gordon not only an excellent podruzheynoy, but also for the domestic dog

Irish Red Setter dog is an active dog, Irish Red Setter dog is an intelligent and aristocratic dog, Irish Red Setter dog is a fast hunter dog.

Irish setter was first attracted attention in the early XVIII century. However, almost one hundred years later reputation as a hunter has firmly established him not only in his native Ireland, but also in the British Isles. The arguments about its origin nothing more than guesses. In the ancestors of the Irish Setter enroll many breeds, but none of them can not with certainty on this claim. In particular, there is a perception that this breed originated from crossing the Irish Water Spaniel Irish terrier, but more reliable, it appears that participated in the creation of the breed English Setter, Spanish Pointing Dogs and Pointer. There is in him and bloody Gordon.
American Irish Setter Club chose the name of the breed “Irish Red Setter” to indicate its place of origin. Nevertheless, the ancestors of these dogs rarely have a solid color. The vast majority of them were red-white, often in color prevailed white. Even today in the British Isles and Europe, many individuals have discontinuous color.
However, in America, recognize only the red dog or red with small, not conspicuous white spots. Bright, mahogany coat is the hallmark of the breed. Largely due to his setter has now become everyone’s favorite.
Setter solid red color in contrast to the red-spotted first appeared in Ireland in the XIX century. Dzheson Hazzard, Sir St. George Gore and graph Enniskillen – all the conclusions of the red dogs. Are there any documentary evidence that the graph of Enniskillen held in his kennel only such. After several years of Stonehenge, said: “Blood-red, bright chestnut or mahogany color – that color vysokoporodnyh dogs. This suit should not be mixed with black and in bright light should not be observed in dark shades, especially black fringe on the ears and in tow. ” Stonehenge is not in vain mentions black, it can mean bloody Gordon. Today, this color is emphatically rejected in color Irish setter. Even a few black hairs are on the “vice.
But enough talk about the appearance of an Irishman, proceed to the more important characteristics

Irish Red Setter dog looks proud, Irish Red Setter dog is easy trained dog with friendly temperament.

Irish Setter primarily hunting Retriever. The first dog was brought to the United States for hunting game. Despite the fact that the American species of grouse and grouse were completely unfamiliar to them, Irish setter immediately showed its best side. Elko, brought in 1875, one of the first won for themselves and their posterity the reputation of excellent hunters. He is not only a huge success was presented at the exhibitions, but also, being superbly coached, worked perfectly in the field.
Quoting Hokuolta. In his book “Modern setter, he writes:” In all, without exception, reports on the first field trials, we find evidence that the Irish setter, showing the “blue blood”, spoke confidently. If at one time lovers Irish Setter continued work on the breed, he is today, no doubt, would occupy a high place in the field trials, not yielding to the other two species. Under them, of course, refers to the English setter and pointer. However, fans of the Irish Setter breed is not improved, at least in terms of field quality. As a result, Pointers and Setters Lyuelina held on field trials all the prizes.
Nevertheless, Irish setters have not lost non-working qualities Retriever and opportunity to demonstrate their hunt for all kinds of game.
How strange, but wonderful appearance and character have rendered a disservice to the Irishman: the beauty, vitality, courage and personality have made him an ideal show dog. For this reason, many breeders are tempted to grow dogs only for exhibitions, sacrificing their primary mission, which does not preclude either its color or size or composition.
And one more word – about the nature of this breed. First of all, it is typically Irish, it does have some sort of recklessness, which not only gives the Irishman extremely attractive, but also makes it indispensable when working on rough terrain and heather bushes. This is a bold, decisive and a dog at the same time soft, loving and loyal. It is hardy and can work tirelessly under difficult conditions.
He has strong legs and balance disorders. He almost never “offended” when corrected in this work. Development of the Irish Setter can not be called early. Often it has to train for longer than other breeds of hunting dogs. His biggest drawback for field trials is a lack of independence – it draws too much attention to the owner. In response to accusations that the Irish Setter develops slowly, it is fair to argue that, once having coached in the bird, he remembers it for life and requires no additional annual nataski. If you have got an Irishman, you can be sure not to part with him for many years and will always be proud of his looks, personality and working qualities

By type of addition Clumber Spaniel is very different from the other spaniels. Its origin is known for certain, as, indeed, the origin of many other breeds. We can only reflect on the statements of experts, and then, without losing sight of the features of the exterior, to try to resolve the issue themselves with a sufficient degree of probability. It can be assumed that the long, low building Clumber received from interbreeding with basset hound and a heavy head (with the notable third century), – from an old alpine spaniel. In the old days Spaniel puppies (even siblings) called differently: Cocker, Springer and the like, but the name “Clumber in the old days did not occur. This, however, does not mean that the Clumber appeared later. In fact, this is one of the oldest breeds, bred for work purposes.
It is believed that this breed originated in France. One of the earliest images Clumber - a picture by Francis Wheatley “Returning from the hunt” (1788), where we see the second Duke of Newcastle and his three Clumber. There is a theory that during the French Revolution, Duke Noayl moved spaniels, he bred for several generations in England, to the estate of the Duke of Newcastle in Nottinghamshire, at Clumber Park (hence the name of the breed).
The English aristocracy jealously guard breed, not allowing her wide distribution. Dogs of the Duke of Portland, Lord Arthur Cecil and Earl Spencer, apparently descended from dogs from Clumber Park. Prince Albert, husband of the reigning Queen Victoria, Clumber interested to see how they work in the estate of the Duke of Newcastle. And King Edward VII gave his spaniel prefix “Sendringem” after acquired residence Sendringem House in 1861

And the first Clumber Spaniel was registered in the American stud book in 1878 – six years before the foundation of the American Kennel Club. (This is explained by the fact that the herd books in the United States existed long before the appearance of AKS. Three volumes of such books were the basis for the Register of pedigree books which are published periodically since 1887.)
When in England in the early 1900′s was created by the breed standard, there was disagreement about the explicit third century, the representatives of this breed. Some believed that a significant third eyelid makes the eyes vulnerable to injury at work, others have argued that it is the most typical feature of the best early birds. Modern Standard AKC says: “Can clearly visible third eyelid.”
Clumber – pretty slow hunter, he moves peculiar – like waddle (see the standard). This kind of movement he tirelessly could walk all day. Clumber is particularly well suited for operation in dense thickets. He usually works without a voice and can approach very close to game. He is looking great game and if it is as follows sophistication, its great aportiruet

In 1880 was organized by the American Spaniel Club, the task he considered the separation of spaniels in size, all dogs weighing over 13 kilograms are classified as Springer. Despite the fact that some American hunters have such dogs, they became known later, when in 1924 the Association of field tests of English springer spaniel, and three years later (1927) Association became involved in breeding and breed.

Field Spaniel, probably to a greater extent than any other representative of a large family of spaniels, were subjected to experiments to satisfy the whim of the person to hypertrophic development of some traits in the breed. Securing the breed unusually long body, squat and massive bone that eventually led to the creation of grotesque caricatures of the spaniel, is credited with Phi-Nisa Bullock from England. Apparently, this type has arisen due to multiple crossing of Wales with a cocker spaniel, Sussex. Later, largely through the efforts of Scott Mortimer, the breed has been improved and came to the type admired by everyone who loves hunting spaniels.
Considerable difficulties arose in establishing the type of modern Field Spaniel in the United States. They concluded that for the betterment of the breed needed matings with Springer and cockers, of course, that kind of offspring, only a few pups have been reported in the American Kennel Club. Incidentally, in the early 1880′s cocker spaniel appeared in America until 1901, the only difference between the cockers and Springfield on the show was their weight. All dogs, weighing more than 11.5 kg, belonged to the Springfield, less – to cockers.

Brittany dog

Posted: 27 Apr 2011 03:20 AM PDT

Picture of cute Brittany puppy-male

Brittany dog is intelligent  hunter, Brittany breed dog has small size, Brittany dog has excellent intuition.

The name comes from the French province of Brittany, which first appeared in this breed. From 1934 to 1982 it was registered in the American Kennel Club as a Breton Spaniel, though the manner of operation looked more like a setter. In appearance Breton less setter, but vysokonog more than a spaniel’s tail is short, ears are planted relatively high. On September 1, 1982 the breed received official status in the AKC as Breton.
Most experts believe that all dogs, hunting small game, have a common ancestor, although data on the development and dissemination of various hunting breeds are lost for centuries. Early written records do not reveal the origin of Breton. They are referred to as Brittany and Britain, the latter probably relates to the British Isles, than to name the French provinces as Brittany to the V century BC. er. was known as Armorica. Appiah, who lived in the II century, wrote about the barbarians of Brittany (or British?), Noting that their dogs had a flair much better than others. This quality of many Breton continues to this day.
It is likely that dogs are Brittany and Wales had a common ancestry and similar paths of development. These two areas are geographically close to ancient times and are actively traded with each other. Need only look at modern velsh Springer Spaniel and Breton, to note their similarities.
The first source, reliably indicate Breton – paintings and tapestries of the XVII century. The consistency with which the images of these dogs, said that they were quite common. Audrey (1686-1745) paints a liver and white dog in a rack over a partridge. Equally typical images of artists of Flemish school of painting by Jan Steen, is common in Breton and other paintings. Therefore, the ancestor of Breton – not uncommon on the northern coast of France, Holland and Germany, where he came from German vahtelhund (Deutcher Wachtelhund) – modern rock, the appearance and working qualities reminiscent of Breton.

Cute Brittany dog playing with the snow

Brittany dog is a good hunter, Brittany dog is fast and easy trained dog.

Legend has it that the first ancestor of the modern scanty Breton was placed approximately in the middle of the XIX century Ponte, a small town situated in the valley Dyuron, as a result of crossbreeding with white patches of mahogany bitches local hunter and a lemon-white male, was brought in Brittany English hunter woodcock. Of the two scanty puppies that have emerged in the litter, only one left. It worked perfectly in the field, and therefore became a popular manufacturer. Puppies in all its litter or do not have a tail, or were born with short tails-stumps.
Until 1850 there was no written evidence concerning this breed. In 1850, Reverend Davis described the shooting in Carhaix with small short-tailed dogs with longer hair than the Pointer. They worked well in the bush, did stand over the game, they brought game and enjoyed very popular among poachers, because the very nature of this profession requires a docile dogs. Description of these dogs is fully consistent Breton.
There have been suggestions (to confirm at least once), in Brittany at the turn of the XX century is often tied to local Spaniel English Retriever, which brought fans hunting for woodcock. The result is believed to have Bretons entrenched ability to stand, although their appearance has remained the same. Breton, as the breed was recognized in 1907, when the orange-and-white dog fight was registered as the first I’epagneul Breton (queque courts naturelle) [Brittany Spaniel (with a naturally short tail)], the breed name was soon shortened to I’epagneul Breton. Until 1907 Breton included in the “mixed class” French spaniels, but then was adopted by the first breed standard, which required that the tail was short at birth. Later, the requirement of congenital korotkohvostosti been omitted.
Breton appeared in the United States in 1931 and officially recognized by the AKC in 1934. The first standard, literally translated from French, was rather vague. A significant achievement of the American club of fans of Bretons, founded in 1942, was to develop a clear and explicit official standard, which replaced the old one.
The growing popularity of Bretons in the United States due to their working qualities. Small size, excellent intuition and innate devotion to his master make this dog indispensable for American hunters. Thanks to its size, it is convenient for keeping in the city, and his desire to always be profitable in today’s hunting grounds, crossed by numerous roads and fences

Weimaraner breed dog is brave and intelligent dog, Weimaraner dog is rare breed, Weimaraner dog is hunting dog, Weimaraner dog has good feel and search.

Weimaraner – young breed, originated in the early XIX century. Modern Weimaraner – a product of crossing different breeds, with careful screening and selection to fix the desired type and working qualities. Ancestors of the breed were the same dog from which there was a german haired pointer. Since then, the increased height at the withers and weight Weimaraner, but the characteristic color, which is described as silvery gray hair or a mouse-gray, has remained virtually the same. Breed took care of the palace know Weimar. These gentlemen, long familiar with different types of hunting, conceived to combine in one dog, the qualities that they find useful for hunting abounding in those days in Germany’s game. In short, the dog must have had a good feel, and search, and to be brave and intelligent.
Progenitors Weimaraner was used as the etching of dogs in hunting big game: wolves, wild cats, deer, bears, etc. By the time this production has become rare breed of enthusiasts formed an organized club, which was the first description of the dog. Club members were amateur hunters who sought to create a working breed and not for profit. As a result, buy a Weimaraner was difficult even in Germany and in other countries – almost impossible. Before you buy a dog, it was necessary to become a member of the club and club membership required from the candidate of unconditional compliance with the rules of breeding species. One of them says that the offspring of dogs that inspection of the club found it unsuitable, not entered in the studbook, others insisted on the destruction of dogs – even from the litter, the approved inspection – exterior and temperament which does not conform to the breed. Of course, in such circumstances Weimaraner could not get wide distribution

Weimaraner dog is easy trained dog, Weimaraner dog is intelligent and active dog.

The United States met with Weimaraner in 1929, when members of the German Weimaraner Club was an American hunter and dog breeder Howard Knight. He was allowed to take two puppies, and Knight was the founder of the American Weimaraner Club and its first president. The club tried to work on the same principles that helped to preserve the purity of the breed in its homeland, Germany.
It is worth mentioning that after the disappearance of big game in Germany, the Weimaraner coached for upland game and field, and also used as a retriever for hunting ducks, as he was known for his ponoskoy. And in America, and Germany Weimaraner was used mainly for hunting practice, rather than competition and field trials.
In the U.S., aroused interest in the Weimaraner first competition in training before, in 1943 recognized the breed American Kennel Club. Female Weimaraner received in 1941 three times the degree C.D1. Later, another dog under the age of 10 months, got all the power on all types of tests, but work on the trail. Curiously, in America, Weimaraner often participated in various trials and competitions than in all the decades of the breed in Germany.
With regard to character, then that dog should not be kept in an aviary or nursery. It must be a member of the family and pleased to assume all responsibilities, which is entrusted with
