Got another with Charley in there...Old school trainer who had a TON of dog sense.24.jpg
Val Fisher ran Lad iin 1968 and got to the 9th series; was a Finalist with Lad in 1969; went 5th series in 1970; 1971 she went 6th series; by 1972 she had married Jay and went 4 series; 1973 Lad was a Finalist with Val; Finalist in 1974 with Jay running him and Val went 3 series with Sungold Sprite; Lad qualified but did not run in 1975----a Golden.
Oops--forgot to indicate above on Lad was in the National Amateur. Val and Lad qualified for the National Open in 1968 but did not enter -- probably couldn't miss school! Lad and she were Finalists in 1969; went 7 series in 1970; 6 series in 1971; Qualified but did not run in 1972; in 1973 went to 4th series; and in 1974 Qualified but did not run.
Val and Lad had stats that many of us could only dream about.

Talking of old age - anyone here still training and trialing a dog with a hip replacement (you not the dog)? Am looking at this possibility and yes, did run in this year's National but wonder if I ever will again!
