Almost 2 series in the books the pack begins to thin. The pace of the trial will pick-up with 3 land series and water left before completion.

There are three dogs of the second series that still need to finish running the second series.  #68 Web is one of those dogs.  He was shuffled to ensure later dogs had a brace mate.

After work yesterday, I drove up to Minnesota. Web made it to the 3rd and 4th series.  I was able to watch him run the 4th.  The guns were not kind to Web in this trial, he had 1 marked retrieve out of 10 contacts.  His first bird in the 4th was excellent work, put it up beautifully for the gun, no joy the gunner was hung up in a shrubby tree.  He nailed the second contact at the end of the course, flushed it and the guns hit it.  The handler was tapped by the judge, but the handler held him for a second which was really smart.  As the bird tumbled in 6 cackling roosters went up and the judge yelled NO BIRD!!  He needed a third contact which ended up being a trap.  While I'm disappointed he didn't make the 5th, I'm MORE than happy with his performance.  Look out 2018!

Interesting,this is not the 1st report of the guns not being kind. I have heard from many about the Gunning in Austen.
