That was where I met the dog I will be breeding Breeze to this fall, Trooper--loved him and his work then, and am loving what he has been producing in his pups.

This is the water test from the RI National. Stick pond. Long mark (M2)thrown first at 170 yards. Gunner retired. M1 thrown at 90 ish yards. Go bird a wipeout flyer. There was an honour with this as well. Some dogs got lost in the weeds hunting for M1. Silk took a beeline to that long bird--over logs, it did not matter. It was awesome to see just what they can do if they have it in them.

I have trained at West Thompson and I like the grounds.

Does Trooper belong to Dawn?

No, the Trooper I am breeding to is Jim Drager's boy, formerly of PA, now in MT. I like the old Belvedere and Kiowa stuff. It seems to go well with the lines behind my girls.
