Yesterday you got to see Gamblers 1st AKC Master Hunter pass ribbon on Black And White Sunday. If you didn’t get to see it you can see it here. John ran him that day and he said he was a completely different dog than before when he ran him. He thought he finally got his stuff together and the tests were clicking with him. Little did we know that would all change this past Friday.
I entered Gambler in a double master hunter test. One test started on Friday if you got called back you got to finish the series on Saturday. The second test started on Saturday and finished on Sunday. I asked John if he would run him again since he did so well for him. I went along to cheer them on.
We thought Gambler was over being a momma’s boy and thought he could run a test with John handling him and me in the gallery. I guess not, so I am back to running my boy.
This was a major money down the drain day for us. John took off a day of work, the entry fee and gas money to get to the test. All in all this day probably cost us close to $300 and no .50 cent ribbon to show for it. I guess you win some and you loss some and we don’t play this game to worry about money spent.
Saturday Gambler and I went by ourselves to the hunt test. We ran the first series, got called back to run the second series then got called back again to run the third series. During the third series Gambler decided to act up and not listen to me at the line right in front of the judges. He wouldn’t sit, he wouldn’t give me the birds when he did give me the bird he jumped up at me and the judges trying to get the bird back. He tipped over a bucket trying to look for a bird. When he ran the blind he really wasn’t listening to me and that is what they failed him on but told me he needs to clean up his line manners as that isn’t any way for a master dog to act. So now I’m back at the drawing board as to who will run Gambler. This was the problem last year I had with him and why I quit running him. He has no respect for me on test day.
