Woo woo Lindsay, that is VERY good! It is cool for any dog, especially a first time owner-trained one (first time in FT), and of course first 2Q. But even for 4Q it is a good accomplishment. FTs are a hard row to hoe. As you know!

Subject: Third green ribbon in a row
Laddie finished his third Qual in a route, rhoda time the Western New York Retriever Club's O/H Qual. He again ended up with a JAM.
Obviously we'd like to get something more than a green ribbon someday, but I guess it's pretty cool for a positive-trained dog to get this far.
Details to follow if I have time for a write-up, but besides all the call-backs, Laddie did need to get thru the honor on the water triple (dead birds), so that's good. Also, he had excellent whistle sits on both the land and water blinds.
