Scott uses this trial as a test to see how his dogs are going to work in a trial situation after a winter at home. It shows him what he needs to work on, and what is working well.
Don ran fairly early in the day.

This was June's first open trial. I was very nervous about her first walk to the post.

Many thanks to Diane Pagel for scores and pictures and to Monique who put me out of my misery early on and gave me a June update on facebook!
