    Waseca was my first hunt test this spring. My dog came in heat so I had to scratch her. Not feeling as dissapointed now with this weather!

    I think we're closer to another Ice Age than to Global Warming!!!

    I had hopes of running this test but a week before the closing and I had not got the dogs in the water I chose to scratch. Now a day before the test and still having not trained in water yet I am glad I scratched when I did. This weather has to change!

    I really hope the temps stay at or above freezing tonight. I don't want to have to deal with any ice or sharp frozen snow.

    Well here in the west metro we have no snow just rain. I had a thermometer in some training ponds this last week and most were at 50 or above. The coldest one was 44. The warmest was 62

    SMHRA spring test is always cold and wet. This will be a first with a foot of snow on the ground. But that is way I run CBRs they don't mind the cold water and snow one bit. big plus camo should stand out when you are running the blind. lol

    Well the conditions were certainly a first for a ht. The judges and workers did a wonderful job. My dogs did not pass but it was not the test or weathers fault. I have no complaints and sunday was wonderful weather.
