What a Whirlwind Couple of Months!

Although I'm publishing this on January 1, I started to write this during our final show weekend of 2015 at Cleveland in December.

After a spring and summer of mostly field training and very little of anything else, Sonic and I dove into a series of Master Hunt tests. In addition to success there, we also threw in some conformation weekends, one barn hunt trial, and some obedience/rally weekends.

August 15/16 - Michigan Flyways Retriever Club hunt test: Master pass #1
August 22/23 - Marshbanks Golden Retriever Club's hunt test: Master pass #2
August 29/30 - both dogs helped me teach an obedience seminar for the Obedience Training Club of Greater Lansing
September 5 - showed both dogs in big zippo in conformation at the Jaxon KC show.
September 11-13 - Backwater RC hunt test: Master pass #3
September 19-20 - OFF
September 26 - Buckeye RC hunt test: Master test failure
September 27 - Monroe KC:  Sonic RWB, Jag Winners Dog for a 5-point major to complete his AKC breed championship!
September 27 - Great American Dog Barn Hunt trial: Jag first RATO leg.
October 3-4 - American Chesapeake Club hunt test: Master pass #4
October 10-11 - field weekend with Midwest Waterways FCRC: Sonic did a super job as test dog for WCX.
Sonic's 5th Master pass for her MH
October 17-18 - Marshbanks Golden Retriever Club's obedience/rally trials: Sonic Saturday Utility B 3rd place, 2 OTCh points. Jag 2 Rally Advanced legs (94 leg 1, 100+ 1st place leg 2) and 2 Beginner Novice legs (194.5 4th place, and 199.5 1st place) to finish his BN title.
October 24-25 - Central Kentucky RC hunt test: Master pass #5 - new MH!
October 28 - NE Indiana KC: Sonic WB 1 point
October 29 - LaPorte County KC - Sonic WB 2 points
October 31 - Marion KC: Jag Best of Opposite Sex 1st time out as a special, 3 point GCh major, also beating another dog special.
November 1 - NE Indiana KC: Jag Select Dog for 2 more GCh points, and beat a dog special.
November 7/8 - trip to Lakeland, FL to present a seminar. The dogs stayed home.
November 15 - Greater Toledo Obedience Training Club: Jag 3rd Rally Advanced leg with 1st place with a perfect 100+
November 15, trial  - Greater Toledo Obedience Training Club: Jag 1st Excellent leg with a 1st place 99.
November 16 - OFA Eye clinic. Both dogs passed with flying colors.
November 20-21 - Toledo KC: Sonic managed 1 Utility B pass out of 4 classes shown. A positive was she managed to hold her sit stay on the 2nd day, so we excused ourselves and she got a jackpot.
Jag: 1st place in Beginner Novice with a 198.5.
November 29/30 - OFF.
December 3-5 - Cleveland IX Center shows: showed Jag all 3 days in Best of Breed, got zippo.
Thursday, Sonic was 3rd in Utility B for one more OTCh points. Jag was the most distracted he had EVER been in his life and I begged and pleaded him to a 91 score–very generous–for his 2nd Excellent leg. I excused us from the Beginner Novice ring after essentially dragging him around 2/3rds of the heeling pattern. I saw no point in continuing.
Friday, Jag came back from Thursdays mess to win Excellent B with a perfect 100 to finish his RE title, one of the goals of my trip. He then went in Beginner Novice and did a fine job, earning 1st place with a 198.
Best of all, Sonic won Winners Bitch with Lindsey Cook showing her for the 3 points to finish her breed Championship! And she topped that off with a 2nd place in Utility B for 3 more OTCh points.
To finish off the show year, on Saturday, Jag was 1st again in Excellent B with a 95. Nowhere near as good a performance as Friday, but lots better than Thursday. Sonic was 3rd in Utility B.

Friday's Medina KC winnings - New CH for Sonic, new RE for Jag

Total for this stretch:
Jag - Championship, 5 GCH points, BN, RA, RE, and a RATO leg
Sonic - MH, 6 OTCh points, CH.
