How did Dash do at the test today?



Shopping with your husband is like hunting with the game warden.
Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.

Morning brace Dash had a Vizsla bracemate "Ryder" who was known to run so I knew it would be interesting. Both dogs left the line like greyhounds and quickly out of sight. Dash was on Ryder's heels and barking the whole way. He was just excited, but soon got his head in the game. He backed and honored the first point, then found and pointed three birds of his own. Afternoon run he was paired with an Irish Setter and a little more difficult than the morning run. I think the close working setter, the wind, and the heat may have kept him reeled in a bit but he put in a good effort, plus the heat was sending the birds into deep cover and shade. We had a big covey on open ground just inside the woods that ran in all directions causing some confusion with the dogs. I tried to call a point in that mess, but the Judge did not see what I saw and called it a flash point and a flush, then he did get a good point that I had to stomp the bird out to fly, that gave him his needed point and so another pass. Everything ran smooth with both Trinity Valley and Lone Star's hunt tests. Everyone involved did a great job. And the food was great. It was a good day. Good times.
