    Default Announcing New FTCH. Push! :-D

    In the midst of the past weeks horror in New Orleans and surrounding area, I am feeling a bit embarrassed to say that something amazing happened this weekend for us. Push earned his FTCH. title by placing 4th in the Open at the Ottawa Retriever Club field trial. He is now FTCH. AFTCH. Firemark's Push Comes To Shove, Am.***, breeder Melanie Foster, owners/handlers/trainers, Mike and Val Ducross. Mike has been Pushes exclusive handler for all 23 all-age points earned since he was one year of age. We are so very proud of this dog and his accomplishments. Push is such a joy to own, train, compete with and live with. I love having him on the truck with our other dogs training every day. I have to say it is truly a thrill for me to see that my daily work has paid off and in spades. We had more good news as Mike handled Rose, Ambertrail's Wild Irish Rose in the Junior (Derby) at the same trial and is coming home with a 2nd place ribbon for her. I am very proud of my little prot?g?e. Last phone call from Mike is that he is going into the last series of the Amateur with both Push and Rose's dam Reba. Wow, what a weekend!

    Jackie Mertens won the 3rd place ribbon in the Open with Paws! Ken Crosby got the Reserve CM with Hobbes, so it was an exciting weekend for many of our Golden friends. Congratulations to all!

    Take care for now.
