Summer/Fall 2012 – Accomplishments & Titles Earned:
“Monkey & Cheryl – New MH Title”
Magicgold’s Run Thru’ The Jungle MH WCX**- “Monkey” – O/H Cheryl Baca – Golden Retriever Female
Monkey became the newest Magicgold Master Hunter, earning her title at the Labrador Retriever Club of Southern California Hunt Test in Chino! Cheryl and Monkey had a fantastic string of Fall tests, earning 3 straight passes starting at the Marin test, followed by the Sagehens test and then finishing their title at the test in Chino. In true Monkey style, she made it a little more ‘exciting’ by getting into a wasp nest on one of her blinds, but being the well trained dog that she is, she still worked with Cheryl and handled to the blind. Though scary for Cheryl to see Monkey with wasps all over her, it also made her proud to see how well Monkey performed through such an ordeal! Congratulations Cheryl and Monkey on your new Master Hunter Title!!!
