Great Niece Mia is growing like a weed. She is going on 10 weeks old now.
To finish off the post here are a few pictures from last Saturday’s hunt test. As you know Gambler was entered in a AKC Master Level test. The first picture is a photo of the test set up from way back in the parking lot where our truck was parked. The second picture is of our truck and I was standing dang near on the roof to video tape Gambler running (no I’m not in the truck in the pic). The third picture is a half ass drawing of the test so you can see what Gambler was suppose to do. I’m not at good as my diagrams as 2browndawgs is but it’s a start, right?
The first series out of three series was a walk up to the handler start point on the photo, the first mark came out from that blind in the middle of the photo and fell along the shore where it says “first mark”, the second mark came out of the same blind and landed on the grass where it says “second mark”, and the third mark was way off to the right of the photo and that was a live flyer. Once the live flyer was shot and the judge released your dog then you could release your dog to go get the marks. Gambler stepped on each of the three marks and then had to run the land blind which was up the middle on the land where it says “land blind” he had to go just side of the old fall that he picked up. Once he delivered that bird to hand he had to do his water blind which means he should run across the land and jump in the middle of the water where I have a very thin black line drawn, he should of swam down the middle of that channel to the spot where it says “water blind” and come back. He never made it into the water as he would take off and run the right hand side of the bank of water and wouldn’t get in the water as he was checking out that blind with the good smelling birds in it. For that you get a F and a thank you for your donation to our club. We will get them next time!
I have to give a big shout out and thank you to Jenna over at Owned By A Husky. I won one of her contests and got this really cool dog decal from Stylish Canine. I might just have to put this on my new car when I get it.
Come back tomorrow to see what the gang was up to for FitDog Friday this week.
