Safe and sound

Well, the girls are here...safe and sound.

I drove back to Houston to get them and they walked out of their kennels, stretched and carried on as if nothing had happened.  Dogs are so resilient and adaptable to change, that I could learn a thing or two from them.

They are now with me in the hotel room and hanging out, no worse for wear.  Can't wait to get training with them tomorrow.

Here is a picture of one of the pieces of water the group trained on today.

Kenny is the first pro I've trained with that has non field trial dogs of his own.  Here is a picture of his two dogs sleeping in the sun in the holding blind today...we didn't use the holding blind on this test, so as not to disturb the little beauties.  Jaskson is the Jack Russell and Lost is the Heinz 57.  Kenny found Lost, starving and seemingly abused and took her in and now she is a permanent fixture.  She is sweet.

The whole training group has a genuine love for dogs that I don't think I've seen the match of in the field trial world.

Another piece of water.
