A Very Successful Weekend
We all went to the Manitoba Gun Dog Association trial last weekend held north of Winnipeg, near Balmoral. Frigging 17 hour drive, but the roads and weather wasn’t bad, except for some Sask highways of course. We had a pretty good showing over there with Ruby getting a 2nd in the Open on Sunday and Cruz getting his first ever placing in the Qualifying with a win. We are all so proud of him as he’s had a questionable start to his career. He seems to be coming along fine now.
Pictured here are 3 of our Rigby babies. Dottie on the left got a 2nd in the qual the first day and a jam the second. Cruz is the blue in the middle and his littermate, Quiz, is on the right. We came home with 7 ribbons in all with Piper and Dash adding to the green pile as well. There was no Junior so Lewie had to sit on the truck all weekend.
Thanks to the whole gang out there because they put on a great trial and are great people. We sure felt welcome. Heck, they even made us lunches…..
I think this club is hosting the National next fall so we may even come back and run that.
