I ran Reese, my 4 year old Boykin in the seasoned test at SOWEGA, near Albany, GA on Sat. This was his & my first time at an HRC test, and he made me proud. He was nearly perfect on the land series, and on the water, he got both marks cleanly. The water blind took about 7-8 casts, which was a few more than I would have liked, but he took the casts, and handled right on top of it.

We were judged by Mike Perry, and it was a pleasure getting to meet him, and have him judge Reese. We also got to meet the Professor (David McCracken) & Gumbo & watch them run the finished water blind. These are two great guys, and I enjoyed meeting, & talking with both of you.

We had an absolute blast. Due to previous obligations, we weren't able to stay and run again today, but we're looking to run Midlands HRC next weekend.:D

It was a pleasure meeting you as well. Congratulations on the Seasoned pass, and now you're HOOKED!
Mike set up a very challenging test in Finished on Sunday, too. It was one of his usual "unusual" tests that was a lot of fun (and challenge) to run.
Gumbo passed Finished and Upland both days, so it was a good weekend for us, too.

Hairy, your Boykin is one of the better ones I have seen. Good drive, good team player. a nice marking dog. Good job on the tests in both series.
Nice job in training.
Good luck next week.

You may never know how much inspiration this, and the talk we had the other night has given me, but I really do appreciate the kind words you've given. I've got a feeling that we're about to get in it pretty deep.
