Another success at Kankakee River that I overlooked! My apologies to Janet McKellop. Janet and her golden retriever, Maverick, earned their 500th HRC point by passing Saturday's Finished test! Great work, Janet! This takes a ton of work and training and testing and you and Maverick did it with style!
Several more members passed tests at Kankakee River on April 18 & 19. Congratulations to Steve Eidson and Timber, Eric Slater and Mojo, and Tim Doane and Eli on their Finished passes! Also, congratulations to Brant Haverdink and Sundown's Southern Belle who earned their second and third Started passes.
Perhaps most exciting, though, was the pass earned by Boden Miller, age 8! Boden ran his dog, YRP Sundown's Oscar in Started on Sunday and passed. This was Boden's first ever hunt test and it looks like we have a new hunt test addict in the club!
Congratulations to HR Ch Podunk's Better Days Ahead WCX JH "Rhino" for earning his Seasoned title and to HRCH Ch Choccashaw's Irish Blessing WCQ MH "Tule" for earning his Finished title at Kankakee River HRC's test on April 18 & 19. Tule and Rhino brought member Sarah Shull along for the ride and had a great weekend, both passing two tests!
Two more Started Titles!
Sarah Shull also put Started titles on two of her other dogs this past summer. Congratulations go out to German Wirehaired Pointer "Angus" - SHR Doyle's Primecut of Raw Power MH who earned his Started title on Sept. 7, 2008 at St. Clair Flats HRC. We would also like to congratulate German Shorthair Pointer "Ernie" - SHR Hunter's Edge Its All Good for earning his SHR on August 23 at Southern Michigan HRC. Great work, Sarah, Angus, and Ernie!
Congratulations to Sarah Shull and HR Ch Choccashaw's Irish Blessing WCQ MH "Tule" for passing Seasoned at Southern Illinois on October 18 to earn his title! Tule also passed on Sunday.
Congratulations to Sarah Shull and SHR Ch Podunk's Better Days Ahead WCX JH "Rhino". Rhino earned his Started title t his summer, but passed his first attempt at Seasoned on Sunday, October 19! Great Job, Sarah and Rhino! See the next post (above) for Rhino's daddy's accomplishment!
In October, members Tim Doane, Kristy Cusack, and Rod Sage (with their dogs, Eli, Tiki, and Shadow respectively) participated in the HRC International Grand Hunt in Davenport, Iowa. We are extremely proud of this group for putting all their training, testing, and hunting efforts to work on the HRC's biggest stage!
Special congratulations go out to Tim and Eli who passed the 2008 Fall Grand!
Kristy and Tiki went out in the fourth series and Rod and Shadow went out in the second.
Great showing to all of you and thanks for raising the bar for GLHRC!
