NSTRA Champion Godfather's Dakota Elle

Post by Dakotazeb » Mon May 02, 2016 6:35 am

Elle finally did it. She got a 1st place at a trial on Saturday and that finally championed her. Should of had another 1st place on Sunday as she moved 7 birds in one brace. Unfortunately 4 of those birds were ones that just popped (marked birds). She caught one, 2 flew out of bounds and the 4th flew into the middle of a big slough. Oh well, it was a fun weekend and what made it even better is Saturday, when Elle got her 1st place, it was my 70th birthday. Great birthday present.

It's not how many breaths you have taken but how many times it has been taken away!

Has anyone noticed common sense isn't very common anymore.

What a nice birthday from Elle! Happy Birthday and Congratulations. I sure hope I'm chasing my birds around in retirement on my 70th!!
A dog on point.....steady, yet trembling,
Breathing in and tasting the gentle breeze.
Take a moment for yourself to soak it all in,
All the training, the hard work.....it really has paid off.

congrats. Nstra is always fun but better when you are finding birds. My best was almost back to back braces. 5 birds found. 1031 points and came in 3rd. RATS. 74 years old.

I had a 5 bird run once where I only got a 4th place. But also had a 1st once with 3/3 and a back. Go figure?
