May 24, 2015 NY
Ticket from the Wild Litter and I earned our first Qualifying JAM at Central New York's field trial this weekend!!!!!  He did a great job and I'm so proud of him! His land marks and land blind were great, and he did a credible job on the water blind.  I'm thinking he may have been in the running to place until he took a rather large detour on a long retired water mark to make sure a stump in the water wasn't the bird he was looking for.  After checking out the stump, he climbed on a log, looked around, said to himself, "oh yeah, it fell over that way" and took off to get it.  He was really thinking on that one - lol. Congratulations Carol & Ticket!

May 23, 2015 TX

New Wakemup Senior Hunter.
On February 28, in Thomasville, Ga., home of the last great Southern plantations, Reve (Play litter) earned his Senior Hunt title. Some tests were really challenging (in one test only 8 of 37 dogs passed). Mucho compliments from pros and veteran trainers. Eddie Rodriguez is a super trainer!

FL - Bonnie & Clyde Trial Jan 23-25, 2015
Rumble's runs from this weekend....the good, bad, and ugly. No need for a highlights reel as I feel every single moment in the ring with him is a highlight. Even though he is my 3rd agility dog, it is like learning all over again for me. To have a pup so self-propelled and willing to drive the lines I set is so new to me!! My only regret is that our runs don't last long enough wink emoticon Love this boy to the moon and back!!  Congratulations Kristin & Rumble!
