Ken ?
You?re a smart guy. This is going to be a cool event. It can not only test the dogs on long distances but also present the chance to test them on some great concepts at shorter distances or both. It is a one day event (less money spent) with the potential to regain that money or more. Since it is an all singles event, it presents a great training opportunity in many ways. The DFWHRA looks forward to seeing some new faces as well as many former faces. Check it out at

Ken, no excuses. Bring the Dozer and his young buddy Scraper and let them have some birds!

Remember, it's all about the dogs and your dogs will love it.

Don't worry, nobody will take any pictures of your wedgie when you're on honor. :P

Hey this is Robert. I think I might come and watch and maybe run my dog just for the fun of it and tune him up. He could always use a little training! lol. Anyways I will probably see you up in Clarendon at that test next weekend. Let me know how your ducks do?

Thanks Robert

JC I think my dad said that he would go with me on Saturday to run Luke. We just are not sure how we are going to get the ducks there. We were thinking about loading them up on Friday night at the farm, then bringing them home and keeping them in their coops over night and loading them up on the truck Saturday morning and heading to Palmer.
Do you think they will last over night in their coops? There will be 15 in each coop.

check your pm robert

10-19-2005, 09:48 PM
