Notes from Bill and Mary.
We went to the grouse trial. I ran Hess in the gun dog and got fourth. She kinda lost her mind with all the dogs, people, and gun fire. It was a very good showing. Anna finished the open without a placement. I was beaten soundly by better trained dogs. She took an extra step on a running low flyer and I thought she was going to break. I said hup and it cost me. The competition was a lot stiffer this year. It was fun!
We just dove through snow and ice to come home from PA. Abby won the Grouse Trial yesterday with Tim handling. Very proud. She has won a few times, and took 2nd last year. She regained her title…
Another great day in the field for Alan & Kermit. Alan received the Gunners Award and 2nd place today in the cocker trial. We are going to do some celebrating tonight! Great job Alan and Kermit! I promise there will be photos of all the ribbons and trophies to come soon.
It was a fantastic day for CH at the HOF trials in TN. Alder won the open stake in the first springer trial, Dibbs ran his first puppy stake and placed 4th. Alan and Kermit won the first cocker trial held here at the HOF trials. This is Alan’s first placement in a field trial. Alan and Kermit have worked very hard in training with Todd to get to this point. This was Alan’s 7th cocker trial with Kermit. We are so proud of Alan & Kermit! So glad you are part of the CH team! Photos will be coming soon.
We were so happy to see Clair, Grier & Camille in TX while we were down for the field trials. It was great to see how much Clair loves Grier and Camille, and the other way around. Thank you so much for taking time to come up to see us. Grier and Camille also stayed to watch some of the field trial and met many new people in the group.
We were also able to see Clair’s sister Ruby which is owned by Don & Pat in Kansas. It was a family event. Here are a few photos of Clair & Ruby. Clair is on the left.
The great weather in TX is offering quality Spaniel training. Thank you to Bob & Cathy Iverson for letting all of us use their grounds for training and for holding the Springer trials. They put on great trials! All photos & video by Christina
