YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We ran this weekend and finished it up. Thank goodness.............it's been 6 weeks since the last hunt test, and I've used that time to WORK on water issues. NOOOOOOOOOOOO cheating! HA, well, that is the goal!
But it paid off. We had tough judges, and the water WAS cheaty, and lots of dogs failed for bank running. Out of the fifteen that ran on Sunday only five passed.
I managed to handle the gun safely, got no warnings, the blinds were good, the doubles were good, except for the memory bird on Sunday (water) where he took a bad line to it, and came out on the bank too close (in my mind) to the go bird and I was afraid he might decide to return to the old fall, so I sat him and handled him to the memory bird. I was afraid that would fail me, but I'd had no other handles, thank goodness and I guess it was ok since we passes.
GLAD to be done with this. Now we start working toward Seniors, maybe in the spring.
