The Tarheel Weim Club held a Retrieving Rating at the home of members Carol and Charles Parron in Clayton NC on October 3, 2010. They open up the grounds for practice on Saturday to get ready for the rating on Sunday. Sky during practice on Sat, waiting for the bird thrower to take postion.
During the rating on Sunday, Sky is eager if nothing else, unfortunately a pass was not in her future for this day. She ran like she was shot from a cannon, did a great pick up on the bird, came in about 5 feet, dropped the bird, looked at me, and decided she would get it ready for the pot by plucking. . . bad, bad Sky. Back to work on her recall, but I was thrilled with her enthusiasm and during Sat. practice going right into the water and doing several wonderful retrieves. Sky is a work in progress, but we always have fun together.
