Wow, thank you all. It was our first blue and pretty exciting. Luna's a talented dog, I'm the one that is less trainable, but thankfully have a great support group. While physically I train alone much of the time, there are alot of people that make what we do possible. From the generous landowners for training and events, to the clubs, workers, judges that volunteer so much time and effort to put them on, the pros who mentor, the experienced people who share their knowledge, my very patient husband who indulges such a ridiculous investment in time and resources, the friends who cheer and sometimes give a kick in the shorts when needed, many of whom I may never meet in person. Training & running a retriever in any venue is a group effort, the retriever community as a whole is to be congratulated & thanked for every ribbon, every bird retrieved. So thank you!
