We have had some fair success so far running various events this year.
Nitro garnered two 3rds in puppy stakes and a derby 4th (horseback not walking)
His littermate ChaCha earns a puppy 4th in her first FT only a week at the handlers and turns around the following weekend to win BOTH puppy stakes run in one by a total stranger.
Littermate Snap gets several FT placements as well in puppy/derby being also run by a total stranger in one as I was judging & couldn't break (large stake) She then turned around the following week & met her new owner in NY and he ran her in NAVHDA NA the NEXT day and earned a Prize one, perfect score 112. She did well in 2 seperate events handled by strangers in 2 weeks.
Jesse ran in a LARGE limited gundog stake in OH & makes callbacks, thanks to a handler error (earning me the nickname "dumbass" from the judges) of handling him into the bird with wind to his back, we missed the major retrieve. I was later told he had 1st place (well, "He did a nice job and desrved the win you DUMBASS" were the words, LOL) I was heartbroke over my mistake but we went on!
Following week Jesse places second in a 4 pt Open Gun Dog retrieving stake(20 starters), we are getting close to that elusive Dual!!!
Jesse also ran in 3 Senior Hunter tests and passed all, 2 more and he has his SH (I dont do JH so he needs 5)
Nikki, Jess' littermate places 3rd in a large Open Gun dog horseback FT stake in her very first broke stake!
Think that covers everything so far! Couple more FT's to hit yet.
