    My boy Gray may be running Jr. also if Mom will untie the apron strings. Look me up. Will be in a white Tundra with a 3 hole box & you will hear the barking dogs long before you see me.
    I got a test dog he can run also if Zach doesn't come with me.

    I ended up not signing up for this one. The trainer and several others did a "Mock Test" last Saturday and he concluded that he was not quite ready yet- stopping short on longer marks, etc. So we decided to give him another month or so to practice and he will run in a test in December in south Alabama.

    Should be a pretty good test also. I know part of the proposed judges panel for the weekend. Same dog.may run as test dog with my boy since he won't be able to run in contention.

    Here's a video of Gage and me at our first AKC Junior hunt test:



    Gage was 7 1/2 months old. No pro trainer, no experience, not force fetch trained. Our luck, we were the first to run. We did not pass because he did not deliver the second bird to hand. We had a great time and were hooked!

    Good luck and have fun!
