WCA Hall of Fame 2014

Diva finished her championship easily and then focused on performance work. Her willing attitude and natural ability enabled her and her novice owner to succeed in everything they tried, earning numerous hunt, agility, obedience, tracking and versatility titles and an All-Breed High-In-Trial award. Diva was driven in the field - unless pigeons were involved. She did not consider them "game birds". From the start she would not point pigeons and if they were wet she really despised them. During her novice retrieving test Diva did a flawless land retrieve - involving a quail. And then came the water retrieve... She willingly brought the pigeon to the shoreline, but then dropped it. When asked to pick it back up and bring it to me, she gave me that Weim look and then took it by a tip of a wing and literally flung it at me. Thank goodness the "circle" wasn't too far away from the shoreline!

Diva had two litters sired by Ch. Nani's Indecent Exposure, JH, NAJ, V, BROM and found yet another area where she excelled. Of the twelve offspring a record setting ten finished their AKC Championship in one year, earning Diva the 2005 Top Producing Dam Award and making her the 6th generation of #1 Top Producers for Nani's Weimaraners. Several offspring finished their Championships with 5-point majors earned during Futurity/Maturity weekends and one went Winners Bitch at the 2005 National Specialty.

Her offspring include a BROM son who is an AKC Best-In-Show winner, a multiple Group/Specialty winner, a Top Ten Show Dog in 2007; the 2006 and 2008 Best-of-Opposite Sex winner at the WCA National Specialty. Another son who lives in Australia has earned multiple Best-In-Show awards, is an Australian Supreme Champion as well as an Australian dual Champion with a Tracking Championship. Her offspring also followed in their mother's performance footsteps, where several earned advanced titles in hunt, tracking, agility, obedience and versatility including one son who is our breed's eighth Champion Tracker and is also a Grand Champion; a Champion Master Hunter daughter who also earned a BROM rating; and another Champion daughter who earned her Master Agility titles and a VX3 rating.

But most importantly, Diva was a fabulous companion who was much loved and deeply missed by Terrie and all who knew her.
