Kate Has Graduated Winter/Spring Camp!

Mr Bob and Ms. Pat drove all the way from MO to pick up their sweet gal Kate from camp. Kate has been in training with Todd all winter and spring and she has finished the first part of her training camp. Kate has really done a great job and she is looking more mature in her bird work and in her obedience work. It is now up to Bob and Kate for a working relationship this summer. We look forward to seeing Kate again at camp this fall.

Mr. Bob even had a chance to run Alder in the field just to get a taste of what a higher level trained dog is like to run in the field. I believe his words were at the end of the field were “WoW I’m not sure I can keep up with Alder” but Bob did enjoy the moment.

A note from Alan.

Kermit and I passed the final leg of our Master Hunter level for Spaniel Hunt Tests on Saturday Jan 28th at the Wateree Spaniel Club Hunt Test in Cheraw, SC.  WE finally got the title!  Weather was beautiful and very windy.  Kermit was on those birds very quick with 3 traps and two fly aways.  His hunt dead and water blind and water mark were very good.  It’s been a culmination of a lot of hard work so it felt good to get the title.  On Sunday he did well enough to receive the first leg of the Master Hunter Advanced title.  I think 4 or 5 more for that one.  It was great fun for the both of us.

While We Were Training In MO…

I sent Mary this note about shaving her dog, but I missed a letter in the beginning of my note.. Then I received her reply back. Just another funny day!! BTW, sunny and in the 60’s here in MO.

Me writing-Todd would like to know if Oonagh can be saved? It’s warming up.. We already shaved a bunch of the other dogs. 

Mary’s reply-Christina, re-read your question to me.  I thought you were asking me if Oonagh can be SAVED, meaning she is so bad Todd is giving up on her…

Thank God you typed it better in the third sentence.  You scared me!!!

YES, shave her down 😉  Send me a picture so I can see her naked.  I think this will be her first time.  She had to look pretty for too many events last summer.  Go for it.
