Please Excuse a Bit of a Brag.......

Kate's done with trials until spring and we'll be trying to let her see some wild birds soon. I'm ecstatic with the results from her short rookie season. Only two puppy stakes this fall but she won both of them. Rocky Mountain Springer Spaniel Association and Sportsmen's Spaniel Club of Illinois were the trials she entered this year. Todd Agnew of Craney Hill Kennels and his lovely wife Chris of Christina Power Photography get all the thanks and credit for her new hardware collection.......oh, and my wife, Pat, for picking the one with the blue eyes and white tip on her tail......

She will be two in May. So we have some work to do for the spring puppy trials. She received the blue first place ribbons in both of the trials I mentioned above.  That ginormous cup is a traveling trophy for the Sportmen’s Club trial. Her name will be engraved and it will be back there for the next puppy trials.

Bob, great to meet you.  I wasn't able to see her run due to planting the course, so my planting is probably responsible for the win, you can thank me later.  Good thing you aren't going to run the puppy stake at the Illinois field trial in November, heard the one judge doesn't know what he's doing and is a real ass. ^_^

Bob, it would appear that you had better learn how to "smile, walk fast and say Thank you".9_9

My pup is the same age. Running her first puppy & limit stakes this weekend. I'll show her your pics and see if she gets the idea. :)

 

(My training methods are highly sophisticated.)
