LIGRC Fall Hunt Tests

We had a busy weekend with our Fall Hunt Test. The entry was not large. We had very interesting setups.

Lucky that I brought Buffy to run as test dog. She gave me a perfect morning with some warmup marks (she was not entered). When it was time to run her as test dog she decided to show the handlers what a dog should not do. Ah, those lucky handlers who got a heads up on what a high flying dog might do around the water.

I feel bad for those that use their dogs as test dogs. Our hunt test this past summer the one judge used his dog and it did not perform well at all. The judge was oh so patient with his dog and was Please let Prada Brown do better than that.


BTW I cant keep Jige out of water.

Depends on if the dog is prepared for the test or not and has the skills to pass it. Gunner ran test dog in contention and passed with flying colors. He happened to be dog #1 I was marshaling the test. This was on his 6 month birthday.

Thanks a lot. I now feel worse. And to add insult to injury, the judge specifically asked for my dog because he had seen her run three days before.

Wow - you were able to hold the test? You could always blame Buffy's high flying on the barometric pressure LOL

Thanks for a great excuse!
Surprisingly, it looked like that part of Long Island got rain only, unlike my area that had maybe 1.5 in. of snow.

No intention of hurting your feelings. But I bet both of you learned something out of it. Bet the next one goes much different.
