” Sport and Christine JH Title !!!!”

Spiritlodge Sporting Chance JH – “Sport” – O/H:Christine Hsu – Golden Retriever Female

I am thrilled to bits for Christine and “Sporty” finishing their JH title at the Umpqua Valley Retriever Club Double Header held in early June. Passing both days with terrific style both on land and water. It seems like yesterday when Christine and Sport came to me for the first time. Sport immediately let me know she Loved Birds and retrieving. All we had to do was add some polish to the handler and dog and they were off to the Hunt Tests. Huge Congrats to you. I am super proud of them both. Neither Christine or Sport lack drive, or the ability to learn. They are now preparing for Senior.

Joe writes ” As the second youngest dog entered, Zip (!!!) finished 4th in Unsteady Singles with a spectacular 5th mark (water through cat tails). A slightly better third land fall and more experience with lily pads and he might have won. He was impressive. Lots of praise from the Judges too! Huge Congratulations!
