Nancy Murillo and “Louie” – new JH!
Date: July 18, 2015 at the Northeast Washington Gun Dog Club, Chewelah, WA
The journey to Louie’s Junior Hunter title took us on a truly scenic adventure to three different states. Beginning on April 29th, we traveled to the Sierra Nevada RC Hunt Test in Fallon, NV. There, Louie qualified for his first 2 ribbons and “legs.” Then on July 7th, we headed for new territory … McCall, ID. The drive was beautiful, as was the town. He managed to qualify in one of the two tests, and we were on the road again … to Chewelah, WA. Lovely town; nice people! And, he qualified at the club’s first test. Yea!!! TITLE!!!!
Lots of miles, lots of happy memories. It was a great experience to see new grounds, meet up with long time friends, and meet new ones. Many thank yous to the clubs and judges for their very generous gifts of time and effort to this sport.
Louie would also like to “woof a thank you” to his friends who have thrown marks for him and for their endless words of encouragement! What a huge help a talented and dedicated training group gives; especially, when headed by a trainer like Warren Grimsby.
Special hugs and love to our most ardent supporter George … you are the best!
For Pat DeNardo, thank you … THANK YOU … for bringing that “last” puppy to training class. You knew I couldn’t resist him; and later on, he saved me.
