No JH to boast about yet. I have to wait until March for the next local hunt tests. But I took Timmy out in November to our very first hunt tests. (first for BOTH of us). We passed our first time out, and I was hooked... and came back the next weekend for 2 more!! I really wish I hadn't waited until the end of the season to try it....... but 3 out of 4 ain't bad!! All we need is one more pass.
It is a joy to see them in the field. Timmy has a beautiful natural point.... it's like he always knew this was what he was meant to do....... finding those birds became the most important thing in the world to him!!
I think I want to move to the country.......

whooohooo joan! that is so cool :) we did it in 4 out of 5 tries so I am sure the last one will be a breeze! Just like you I waited until the end of the season as well.. But, on the other hand, it is easier on the dogs as it is not as hot and they don't overheat.
Good luck with Timmy. I really want to go even past Senior :) but the country for me is about 70 miles one way away :(

Only just seen your ''Brag'' I know what you are saying, I found it wonderful to see my young girl (Saffy) working for the first time, although she wouldn't win anything....but we both enjoyed it
