Conneaut Creek Holly's Memory
When Holly Bruns passed away so suddenly last fall, it was a terrible shock and a blow to the National Red Setter Field Trial Club. Not long after Holly's death, we had a litter of puppies here at Conneaut Creek Kennels. We had 5 males and 1 female, and since I wanted to keep a female, we decided to name her in memory of our dear friend Holly Bruns.
Well, this weekend we ran Conneaut Creek Holly's Memory in her first field trial, the Open Walking Puppy stake at the Beaver Valley Pointer & Setter Club in Rochester PA. "Holly" took a 2nd place and she looked good doing it! I know that Dale and Holly were watching over us this weekend. We sure miss you both.
