Today we are joining 2 Brown Dawgs for their This ‘N That Thursday’s blog hop!
This is what she has to say about the hop,
A little of this and a little of that and everything in between…
“This ‘N That Thursday is for anything you want! Maybe you want to post about unrelated topics, or each topic isn’t quite long enough to make up a whole post, or you have awards to share, or you have one long post…anything goes! So grab the button and join the hop!”
First I want to share Gamblers OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) hip and elbow results. May 15th, 2013 I took Gambler to the vet to have his OFA xrays taken. You can read about that here.
And the results are………..
Other genetic tests that I have done on Gambler.
EIC: Clear by parentage
PRA: Clear by parentage
Now I need to sit down and get the Gman’s stud page up and running on my website.
Sunday Sand Spring went to a UKC Hunting Retriever Club hunt test hosted by Horicon Marsh HRC. I was running Gambler in Seasoned and John was running Glory in Started. This would be Gambler and mine first time running this type of test. So we were learning and competing together. I would say it was the blind leading the blind but Gambler was such a good boy and did so well I was the only blind one that messed up on his blind but he pulled it off. I get so nervous doing blinds in front of people let alone judges. I needed to handle Gambler so I stuck my arm up in the air in a right hand back and I yelled “over”…..opps handler error, Gambler took the handle as a right hand back. Good thing he wasn’t listening to me. Other than that I had good gun safety (you have to shoot a real gun with popper loads at the line) and Gambler had great obedience, marking and retrieving. Needless to say we got our first seasoned pass.
Glory had a excellent land series. She didn’t do so well on water. We’ve been having confidence issues with Glory on water. Some times she is great and she makes some awesome retrieves on water then the next time she jumps in goes a little ways and then she comes back like she doesn’t know what she is suppose to be doing. Back to the drawing board with Glory on water.
Glory being silly in the blind.
Hi mom I see you. Hi Glory I see you and you best do good!
I rocked on the land series, too bad my water wasn’t so good.
So that wraps it up for today, why don’t you hop on over to 2 Brown Dawgs see what their up to and grab the badge and join the hopping fun!
