Blue Ribbons for Goldens!
What a great weekend for field trial Goldens ... TWO WINS in Amateur stakes!!!
Congratulations to Chris Van Eimeren and "Doc" (Lightninbolts Duck Doctor ***) who WON the Amateur at the West Allis Field Trial last weekend!
Congratulations to Ernie Hawkins and "Hawk" (Topbrass Hawks Blackhawk ***) who WON the Amateur at the River King Field Trial last weekend!
Each of these dogs are within a whisker of earning their AFC titles, with both having their All-Breed Amateur wins! Bear in mind that both Chris and Ernie are AMATEURS TRAINING THEIR OWN DOGS ... it's hard to do, but it's not impossible.
Good Luck to Chris/Doc and Ernie/Hawk in picking up the points for the AFCs!!!
Proud of your accompishments!
(BTW, there were 9 all-breed field trials across the nation last weekend ... Goldens represented roughly 5% of the dogs entered in the Amateur stakes, yet took home 20% of the blue ribbons.)
