I have been really busy and haven't had a chance to post this, but my dog, Kali that I have been asking some of you for advice on got her HR last weekend!! She had been doing really well in training so I decided to give it a shot (I only needed 1 pass). Not only did she title but she did it in style, lining the angle-entry water blind in the last portion of the test!! I could not have been more proud or happy! I literally jumped up and down and was allowed to jump in the pond rather than being pushed in by the judges (who I've known for YEARS). Kali was jealous! (she wanted to jump in too but the judges held on to her) It was a very special day for me and my little black dog because while I have been involved in the retriever games since I was 11 but this is the first dog I have trained on my own and handled in hunt tests. To top it off, I got to share the day with a lot of people that support and encourage me. Now it's time to get ready to run with the big dogs for her HRCH and SH (then hopefully MH). Thanks SO MUCH to everyone on here who has given me advice/suggestions. I love RTF!
