    My goals for 2014 are:

    1. Put a SH on Parker in the Spring

    2. Have him running MH and QAA in the Fall.

    3. Finish his CH at some point. (We only need 4 stinking points)

    4. Get the future pup through FF, TT, and possibly a JH

    5. Attend more training seminars.

    6. Improve my handling skills

    7. Improve my patience while training my pups.

    considering that we have two dogs that will be 13 yrs old in Feb our goal would be to have as many healthy dogs at the end of the year as we started with (6)....

    Very good point.

    I will attempt the same ending while going for a grand pass on both dogs.

    And shooting for a BSS Nationals open win.

    No SPecial order
    1. Find some new local spots to train.
    Give time to the clubs I belong to and the people that help me get better.
    Make fewer mistakes on the line than last year. Hopefully that will lead to a QAA.
    Get past the first series of the AM.

    Give Kate, MH with 10 passes before she turn 3 a summer break while still maintaining somewhat. Get Star 7 1/2 months ready to move into the party after she is fully ready to pass 4/4 at SR. Judge some masters and certainly some more JR/SR. Got a few lined up so far. It will be a good year no matter what! I won't let it be otherwise......

    Do you really want to increase entries at the Junior Hunt Test level? Simply put a limit on entries and everyone will flock to JR and fight over how to get in and what to change to make it fair for all !!!!!

    I would like to enjoy life more and really appreciate what really matters. After all I became a granddad with a new granddaughter on Saturday! What a feeling!
    ENJOY THE JOURNEY!!!

    I will be getting a final pass for the NAHRA MHR title on my female, and on to trying the other games. Should have a pup from her to start with the next "project".
