Michigan Amateur Field Trial Club...

Hi all,

This past weekend I ran my red dogs in my first ever "cover dog" trial... went to the hallowed grounds of Gladwin in Michigan... had a blast and although my red dogs didn't have any placements, they showed some potential for running in the woods. One of my puppies also put up a covey of grouse that had at least 12 birds... THAT was fun!

Thanks to everyone who helped us during the trial... especially Tom, who ran around with me and helped round up one of my dogs who decided to run for an extra hour after her brace! Gladwin is a great place and well worth the trip. And the club members were really a great bunch of folks. I'm planning to go back.

Here's a couple of videos I shot during the weekend... sorry I can't I.D. everyone, but if you know someone, feel free to post in the comments. Thanks!

Driving to the next course... had a heavy rain the night before, so the roads were a little muddy...
