Last weekend my husband and I decided to go to our first field trials (2). It was a rewarding experience with alot of work finding bunnies and being out in the rain. Our Scarlet placed 4th out of 25 bitches in her first ever run. We were thrilled and proud of her. The second trial two days later she decided she didn't want to put her nose to the ground she just wanted to play. She just turned one year two weeks ago so it must have been the puppy in her. Thanks to all the northwest field trialers for putting up with the newbies!
