Big Congrats!
« on: April 19, 2019, 11:46:17 PM »
Hey, Everyone give Colin a big Congrats! He WON the Qualifying stake at the Tacoma Retriever Club Field Trial today. This is a competition and he beat 9 other dogs which were run by very experienced handlers and a couple very good professional trainers. Great job Colin! I watched his last series water marks and he was spot on. One of the judges told me the land and water blinds were excellent compared to the rest of the field. Very proud of you and I know you have put in the hard work which paid off in a competition setting.

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Colin rolls in a 3rd place in his second trial in Oregon. Hell of a job this weekend!
