Wanted to give a big congrats to my long time best friend, college buddy and guy that got me in this game 35 + years ago. Placed 2nd in the Qual at Mount Rushmore Retriever Club's 1st field trial this weekend. Rick Himmelspach and his nice brown female Sweet Bella Blue II now QAA MH.
Also a congrats to this club as this was their 1st Q/D try as a Hunt Test only club and as not enough Derby dogs, only had the Q. Job well done by all members of this club, not a one hick-up, very smooth and great tests by the judges, Mr. Goettl and Mr. Srejma.
