Sunday’s Hunt Test

This past Sunday we took Gambler and Glory up to Manitowoc Kennel Club’s spring hunt test. Gambler was running AKC Senior’s and Glory was running AKC Junior’s.

This is how Gamblers test went down in Gamblers words:

A field trial judge known for his hard hunt test set up’s was judge for the test so mom let John run me because she didn’t want to mess up and wanted a pass. The first land series was a double, dead bird (memory bird) first thrown from the right 75 yard’s then flier from left 110 yard’s. I was fixed on flyer station then 2 black birds went past so I didn’t see the first bird down. I pegged the flyer then John lined me up for memory on a wing and a prayer I went out and pegged that one (and they thought I didn’t see it). I one whistled land blind on way back from blind a diversion bird went over my head. I went and picked that up no problem. The honor was great, I got called back for the water series. On to water. Water was right bird first on land, flyer to left on water my bird only went 5 feet from shore, I ran the bank jumped in and grabbed it…for the other dogs it went across pond so they had to swim. John turned and said to the judges “that was a cheaty mark, I don’t know any dog that wouldn’t of done what he did”. I then went after the memory bird then a feather caught my attention so I got off line as I swam to the feather then a fish jumped so I  looked at that then I  got handled to bird and stepped on it. The blind was out past a point then on land. I had a 10 whistle hack job but did the job. Then I came back pegged my mom and wouldn’t listen….after John took the bird from me he was trying to get me to sit and put the leash on me and I wouldn’t have none of it. I kept staring at mom and then couldn’t take it anymore I ran away from john and right up to my mom and gave her a big wet hug..luckily I was the last dog…I got my second pass!


John handled Glory in her AKC Junior hunter test. She needed to do 2 single retrieves on land and then 2 single retrieves on the water. They did a great job. I was worried about Glory on the water as she has been getting confused on entering the water (I will release her, she runs to the water, jumps in and then comes back out and stares at me) so was a bit nervous if she was going to go in or not. She  ended up doing just that on the first water mark. John said he thought she was confused because the judge yelled out her number and John released her and she acted like she broke and she realized it and needed to come back until sent from John. Regardless he resent her and she jumped in got the bird and came back. Second mark went much better and she got her second Junior pass.

Naughty Dogs

I could wait till Mischief Monday to post up these photos but I’m quite sure I will have more photos for that day. I went outside one day and this is what I saw.

I’m thinking I found the culprit that likes to haul my dishes outside. Miss Glory!

2013-05-15 07.16.172013-05-15 07.16.44

Besides Glory hauling out tupperware outside Gambler decided to haul a pillow outside and proceeded to de-stuff it! Naughty, Naughty….and here I am taking photos of naughty boy instead of yelling at him!


Gambler feels the need to pick up any clothes laying around and carry them around. John took off his sweatshirt when got home from work and Gambler picked it up and ran around with it roo’ing. So John put it on him because that must have been what Gambler wanted! Glory thought he looked really odd and didn’t quite know what was going on. Silly boy!

So that wraps it up for today, why don’t you hop on over to 2 Brown Dawgs see what their up to and grab the badge and join the hopping fun!

  1. Loved the pillow de-stuffing pic (probably more than you enjoyed the actual de-stuffing :-)). One day my mommy looked next door and saw the neighbor dogs sitting in the middle of de-stuffed sofa pillows. I think my neighbor dog friends probably didn’t get treats that night.


  2. LOL! Loved Gambler’s account. And who wouldn’t be distracted by a feather. And…a FISH. Now who could resist a fish? 🙂

    Congrats on both passes!

    Cute mischief pics…I agree…why wait to share? I’m sure the dogs will be happy to create some more mischief to share on Monday.


  3. Congrats to Gambler and Glory on the pass and sometimes you just have to get distracted. Loved the mischief pictures, Lexie used to be my one for mischief but very little of that these days:-)
