Specialty FT Entries CLOSE TOMORROW!
Tomorrow is the deadline for entering the Specialty Field Trial.
The number of dogs entered is quite low, probably due, at least in part, to the location being on a coast instead of in the middle of the country. With such low numbers, the judges will have the opportunity to be a bit more lenient with callbacks, so if you are "on the fence," get off your ... fence and get entered. The judging panel is very qualified and will set up nice tests (I can guarantee that the Qual and Derby will be FUN to run).
And even if you aren't running a dog but are within a reasonable driving distance, go check it out. It'll be worth your time. You will get to meet some new people, make new friends, and see some dogs that are from distant parts of our country. It's truly amazing what these athletes can do and watching them "do what they were bred to do" is inspiring. I've often said that I wish that I loved my work as much as my dogs love theirs!
