So, it can be done! As of this past weekend both Rose and Belle have achieved the Master Hunt Title. Amateur trained and handled. Took a year off last year to give Rose time to recuperate from her surgery, radiation therapy on her back left hock and then deal with the Pythiosis treatment until February of this year. Cannot be more proud of these girls! In one month going back to back double master tests, with only three days of water training they pulled it off!

Very huge congrats, Claudia<:

It's a credit to all the hard work you put in as well.

I'm also very happy Rose is doing OK. I heard along the grapevine what was going on and was just sick at heart for you. Good girl.

Congratulations! You have done a terrific job. I know it isn't easy. I myself hesitated posting this, I of course heard about this a couple days ago, thought you should be the one to post.
Belle and Rose are two nice dogs.

They truly are! Love them all three to pieces!

And I thank you for one of my gems - Belle! She is an amazing girl. I cannot be more proud of her. With weekend training she has competed through three series in Quals, she was awesome as derby test dog (except one time when my husband was shooting and she thought she should go back to his station - hence we either have to train with him shooting for us or he cannot shoot when she runs). But we had to put the MH on hold for her. Went with Quals because they were one day event and it was easier travel on Rose last year.

Rose, WOW - this girl with no breeding behind her, not starting the games until she was 2. A dog who would not pick up a duck and hardly going into the water has developed such a love for the sport. Never thought I would go to the line and worry about Rose breaking. Well, she gave me some heart attacks on that and several auto goes on the memory birds. On the blinds she was a step in front of me - just wanting to go. A huge transformation and nope she was never forced. Neither of them.

Congrats to you all. It's almost a foreign language but I can at least tell you have all put in lots of hard work and had fun.
