Teller takes Winners Dog and 5 points in Canada!!!


We're just back from the De L'estrie shows in Sherbrooke Canada - we went up for all three days (driving 3 hours each way) so I'm only now catching up on my emails and getting the news out. Teller is now 16 months and the 12-18 class was the largest class in all three regular trials and the specialty.

Friday Teller went 2nd out of 8, Saturday 3 of 12 (ironically both classes) and today he took the 12-18 class and then winners dog beating out some really nice open dogs that are finished in the states…

As you can imagine I'm walking on air - Teller is my first pointed dog and to do it with such good competition I'm just beside myself….I was actually in the obedience ring at the time with Murphy doing the stays - he had already NQ'ed (he anticipated the recall) and the handlers were up against the gating when I feel a tap on my shoulder and my friend Joan telling me that Teller had won…I didn't really make sense of it and the judge ordered us back to our dogs for the down - then she tells me that Teller had gone winners dog, I turn around to face her and said "No!" then turn back to Murphy and realize what she had actually told me, turning around again - "No! Really? Holy crap!". It was certainly a memorable NQ in the obedience ring :-)
