Springer Fun Trial on Aug 16th

2 posts in this topic

Last month, I ran my puppy in his first fun trial, put on by the Minnesota Hunting Spaniel Association. I know they are running another one on August 16th and here is a link to the flier:

I had a ball running Maynard in his first trial - even though he backcast on me a couple times and kept me out of placements. But I was sure proud to see him find, flush and retrieve his two birds.

The nice thing about it - is that they have a group for everybody, even if your dog is not steadied (Maynard isn't - yet) and a special group for kids. It was great to see a 6 yr old boy out there, running the 2004 Amateur National Field Trial Champion (retired but still full of juice) - his dad proud as punch.

A nice group of people and a fun way to spend some hours with other Springer people. I wish I could be at this one - but I have a wedding. I think you may want to call them if you are going - so they can have enough birds.

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
    • Yea yea all ya auld pharts would  pass out the minute she popped the first button!!
    • Would he get a free hoodie for his efforts?
    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.

    •   Wanderer, you better scaddle on out of these parts before your soul gets taken and your brain gets fried too!
    •   Yeah, you better stick with Bob's girl above old timer. She wouldn't swallow what your selling either!
