12.11.16Field Trial Marcheprime
Last weekend I had a lovely trip with Annelies towards France. For me the first time ever I wanted to participate in a Field Trial with my dogs. It was an amazing experience. My dogs loved to hunt for the pheasants and i got very friendly comments about their work.
We saw many great looking and working spaniel in the fields. In our spaniel group (spéciale autres variétés) we had to compeed against Field Spaniel, Welsh Springer Spaniel, Clumber Spaniel and the Irish Water Spaniel).
The Judges, club organisation, shooters, helpers and participants were all too nice and friendly and me and my dogs enjoyed every moment we were there. Thank you all for making this last contest in her hunting carrier for Missy so special! She is now officially retired :-)
