WCA Hall of Fame 1999

Pollyanna was that "once in a lifetime Show dog" that everyone dreams about and rarely comes up with. She had beautiful type, effortless eye-catching movement with great style and showmanship. Her attitude was always "Hey, look at me"!

Polly had an outstanding show career, being on the Top Ten Show list for five years (#2 in 1984, #1 Weimaraner and #4 Sporting Dog in 1985, #2 in 1986). Her record also includes 201 Best of Breeds, 107 group placements (36 Group Firsts), Best in 1982 Western Futurity, Best in 1983 Western Maturity and three All-Breed Best In Shows! Her record as the Top winning Weimaraner of All-Time, owner-breeder handled, still stands to this day, when she defeated over 16,000 dogs in a single year of competition in 1985.

The final jewel in her crown of outstanding achievements, was when Polly came out of retirement at 6 1/2 years old to win the coveted 1987 National Specialty in Downington, Pennsylvania, which at that time was the largest National ever held. In between her busy schedule of being a Show dog, she also proved herself as a successful producer by passing on her wonderful qualities to her offspring. She produced 10 Champion offspring, which includes Dual Champion Valmar's Valiant Knight, CD, NSD, NRD, V, BROM .
