    Default Your Retriever Goals for 2009

    Greatly enjoyed reading the thread that was posted here last year so here goes for 2009!......

    My goals for 2009: Get MH title on Coach and Tory, in addition to running the Grand. Earn HRCH title with Rayne along with HR titles on a couple young dogs.

    Post away!
    HRCH UH Wolf Creek's Ebonstar Coach "Coach" MH
    HRCH UH Wolf Creek's Candlewood Victory "Tory" MH

    Do you listen to God as well as your dog listens to you? Can God run "Blinds" with you?

    HRCH and MH on Tears, MH and HRCH on Smoke, maybe run the fall grand or NMH, and then litters for both. Running other dogs as well, just no pressure/time frame for them. Two young ones will be in training as well, one for hunt tests, one for FT.

    For 2009 I am hoping to continue working with daisy (16mo) and hopefully by the end of 2009 she will be a consistent hunting retriever, 2008 has been full of surprises I only hope that the progress continues.

    My goal is to run the GRAND in South Dakota and look respectable.

    I would also like to put 500 points on her this year.

    After those working towards an AKC title.

    I'm looking to finish the JH (went into season last year) and put a SH or even some MH passes on my almost 2 year old CLF.

    Run a couple derby's with my young guy and get at least a ribbon or two (turns 1 on June 1, 2009).

    With the snow we've been getting in ND this year, duck population is going to be awesome with all the ponds filling back in because of the high water table and all the run off. Looking forward to the possibility of the best waterfowl season yet.

    Get my 6.5 yr old blf, who I am really just starting with, a SH title and keep my show dogs that have run MH string alive in 2010. It would make three straight generations. And have pups this summer/fall. Whew...
