Years ago I judged Minot & she was running Marathon Man. He won the Open on his way to a DH.Emotional favorite Yvonne Hays and Bee, she has had a long and successful run as a competitor but mostly in Charlie’s shadow. Hopefully he is somewhere watching and barking advice.
They will update soon with leftover merchandiseAnybody know or direct me to a link for NARC souvenirs like hats or t-shirts? Would like to support them in some way. Thanks
The "blog guy" consists of 4 ladies at the event, plus one back in the office who just worked eight 14-16 hr days.Congrats to the winner. How about the blog guy do an interview with the winner. Feel like we watched the blog for a week, now we got a conclusion, let’s hear about the journey First hand. Right?
Wow' just WOW!!I thought this write-up from Pat Burn's added some substantial color to what the NARC is like for human and dog. Thank you for the insight Pat.
This sport is hard - expect that there will be setbacks, frustrations and moments when you question your own ability. But remember, there are no shortcuts to success. Work hard. Be fair and patient with your dog. Be consistent. And never, ever give up.www.eliteretrievers.com
Just re-reading the tread myself and noticed this post. The female test dog "Annie" belongs to Mary Spangler, one of the land owners. I saw her win her first trial last fall. A first for Mary too I believe. Mully placed 2nd and broke 100 points.Another observation I should have mentioned is that most of the competitors would gladly have swapped for the work of the female test dog on that 10th series!- Paul
