    Default Tragedy in North Dakota

    I know this is a retriever forum but this hits home for anyone that does conditioning runs. It makes me sick just thinking about it. My condolences go out to the owners of these dogs.

    I don't understand. Multiple dogs drowned on a conditioning run from a 4 wheeler...I'm missing something. Definitely condolences to the owners.

    Guessing the dogs were in roading harnesses and driver somehow lost control of the 4 wheeler, ended up in a body of water.

    Some years ago a pro let FT dogs out to air in northern Florida and they got into toxic water and several died. Bad things happen when we do not take care.

    The picture and bio of this dog is just stunning. What a heartbreaking loss for all concerned. So, so sad.

    Deepest Condolences-
