My youngster, Soot, did quite well in the Nursery classes, and she received many compliments about her work. It is always nice to hear good things about my dogs' work, but it is especially nice to hear those remarks from Christine Henry, the person from whom I bought Soot. I am really enjoying working with Soot, and with further training, I am sure that she will continue to improve. Dan King, who was also very complimentary of Soot, took the wonderful photo below during the trial.
Dan also thinks quite highly of my dog Drift, and the photo below is of Drift (thanks, Dan!).
The second weekend was back to Edgeworth for the clinic that focused on the international shed and was instructed by Tom Wilson. Well, I am not a seasoned Open handler, so I was apprehensive about my participation in the clinic. But, thanks to my good dogs Kep and Maid, we did all right. It is always wonderful to work dogs on the trial field there, and I am sure that we all benefited from the experience. Below is a photo (again taken by Dan King) of Kep and me working the shed.
Thank you Tom and Florence for hosting two outstanding events at your incredible Edgeworth Farm!
