Today is Kona's 8th B-day and he got to spend it at the hunt test. We got 2 birds further than last attempt ............... he passed the land series but failed on the first water mark. He did have fun though and it turned out to be a nice day. We will step up his field training this summer to get ready for the fall tests. He was the oldest dog running in Junior today but is very green in the field. Obedience is much more engrained in him.

Happy Birthday Kona. Linda, it sounds like you and Kona are having fun and that is what matters most.
You're out there doing something with him...keeping him young. Pass or fail it is fun sharing the bond that you have
glad you had a fun birthday !

Happy Birthday Kona! No matter what happens, Kona is lucky to have someone who spends time with him and has fun doing it at the same time!!

I ran my first lab at JH at 7 yrs old and I bet she enjoyed that title the "mostest"!!! I still have such fond memories of those tests. Anne
