Cheryl Baca and “Monkey” – new MH!
Monkey completed her Master Hunter Title in 5 of 7 tests. The last leg was earned at the Prado Dog Training Park in Chino. Monkey has been a fun, hard running, animated Hunt test dog all the way through. We had a very clean first series on the test and went in to the second series well. Spanking the water triple hard. However, the water blind turned in to more than we bargained for when Monkey came upon a wasp nest and was attacked by the wasps. Not realizing what happened I stopped her on a whistle and continued to cast to the blind. She took the final cast and picked up the duck. She immediately leaped in the water, stuck her head under the water several times and continued to do this on her return with the duck. Once she delivered her duck,I looked down, I realized her neck, and under carriage was crawling with wasps. The judges were shocked. I had her get back in the water to try to get them off and proceeded to pull the rest off. The test was stopped for over an hour while the wasp nest was located and destroyed. Meanwhile, My Brave Monkey was treated with Benadryl and watched for any allergic reaction. Lucky for us, she had no reaction. The next day she went on to finish her 3rd series and her Master Hunter Title. I LOVE THIS DOG!!!
