Harry, the link Becky posted provides a good summary of the tests with pictures and sketches. I watched the two test dogs and the first seven dogs run the third series this morning and then came back to the motorhome to warm up. Trek and I don't run until late today. Of the seven I watched, there were three clean jobs, one handle, two pickups, and one switch. I'd say it's averaging 8-9 minutes per dog, but the gun changes and rebird will take some time. They also announced that they will run a bye dog before every rebird so the honor dog doesn't have to wait which will also extend the time. The judges are hoping to get done with the third series today.

3rd series eating them up again today a bit. Some real nice work too, though.
We are at dog 68, started with dog 30 and:
11 handles or pickups, few nasty big hunts and some real nice work.
Fun test to watch.

Thanks for all the good luck wishes. Trek did a nice job on the 3rd series water triple late today, but they did not finish the series tonight and did not do partial callbacks. Still a few more dogs to run in the morning. I had to scratch from the GRCA National as there is no way I can make it to Colorado in time. Sure wish I could be in two places at once!

Trek went out on the 4th series water blind this afternoon, but I was totally pleased with his work. He is a very young dog and his blinds aren't quite at the all age level yet. But he gave it a good effort and stayed with me on a long, difficult rat trap blind. It was only the second rat trap blind he has ever done. Plus he showed me definite progress in his training. I had tears in my eyes when he made it out to the bird. What more could I ask? Thanks to all of you for your support.

Meanwhile, Lynn and Rio are still in because they had one of the best blinds of the day. They will be running the 5th series land quad tomorrow. Rio is the only Golden left in the running. Keep those good wishes coming for them.

Judy, if you see Lynn, please tell her and Rio Best Wishes from New Mexico! It sounds like you had a great trial, regardless of ribbons. Congratulations to you and that youngster of yours. Too bad we'll miss you in Colorado. I've got you on the scratch list.

You're right, Trek is only three. Congratulations and keep pushing.

The picture of the 7th looks really neat. Looks like one of those tests that you want to run, but you know it is either gonna be really good or really bad....:)

Good Luck Regards,

Aaron

First there were 6. Now there are two.
Darbi and Sinner had a good run. Got love them but suffer the disappointment.
My wife handed me a bumper sticker she got a long time ago for me as she saw us dog people respond to our dog's work.
I love my dog
I hate my dog
Go Ollie & Arson
Darbi came along way this year, Marcy!
Go Kenny

The 7th took it's toll. I'm curious.... does anyone know who the two dogs are that stayed in for the long bird in the 7th? HPW

Judy Myers
09-25-2010, 10:50 AM
Yes. First to do it just before a gun change was #68 FTCH Sloan of Sweetwater with owner/handler Raymond Smith. Immediately after the gun change, #70 FTCH/AFTCH Pilkington Casper of Mt Granite did it (owner Gerry Burmaster, handler Kevin Cheff). I was out gunning for the long mark with Daniel Schnitka when the first dog did it. We were in the holding blind and couldn't see a thing but for the first time heard a dog approaching by water. We wondered if the dog had made the long swim. Sure enough, as soon as the dog picked up the bird there was loud cheering from the gallery and car horns were honking, so we knew it was a good one. Very exciting to be part of it.

y'all realize that while Sharon was off in Canada, the Midwest Field Trial Club hunt test was going on at her place? The Gierman's were gracious enough to host some of the stakes at their place. It made for some NICE test setups and very comfortable and dog-safe grounds.

Congrats to Sharon and thanks for letting us play in your 'yard' while you were away!
