So I'm driving down this "country" road and have been admiring this pond for a while for training. So happens the "lady" is grabbing her mail from the mail box so I pull in to politely ask if she would give me permission to use for training. Well she said no problem and says I also have 50 acres behind here that you might also like to use with another little pond. She did have horses and was a "Barrel Rider" and was cool to the thought of needing a place to train.
So I said lets get Remi out and throw a mark or two in this pond and see what happens. So I bring Remi out and sit him beside her so I could walk around and throw the bumper.
I walk around, she's got Remi sitting at her side, I go throw the dokken about an 80 yarder, come back and send the dog. She says WOW he actuallly got it. I wasn't concerned that he wouldn't. She says come back anytime...I am so gratefull. She even said her or her husband would be willing to help as a throwers if there around.
There are some beautiful people in this world, you just never know where you are going to find them.
I'm going make her and her husband a batch of my "southern goose bbq" in the slow cooker as a nice gesture.
Great training and have a good day.
