|Lync at the Sprinters Trial|
Lync and I are having the best time this summer! So far he tried out Sprinters and earned his Novice Sprinters Title. On August 20,21 we travelled to Strathmore once again for a Sprinters Trial. Lync earned his Sprinters Title with tons of points toward his Sprinters Advanced Title.
On the August 28,29th weekend we went to Wabamun to attend Lync's 2nd Hunt Test. On the first day he passed and was able to add the Junior Hunter Title to his list of accomplishments! In a Hunt Test you need 3 passes for the title. He got his other 2 in July. On the 2nd day of the Hunt Test I put Lync in as we were able to just relax and enjoy it as we already had our title. Lync got all the way to his last mark. It was on land, previously to this mark he spotted a live bird in the water. I could not get him to take his eyes off it! Finally he was able to concentrate long enough to pick up and deliver his bird. The next mark was the land one. Lync kept peering over his shoulder at the water looking for the live bird. He wasn't paying attention so he did not see his bird fall. Needless to say he had no idea of where to go tofi nd his bird. That earned us a big fat fail! I was actually disappointed. I think because it was the last mark, all he had to do was pick it up and bring it back to me and we would have passed. Oh well, something to work on! At the Club Barbecue on Saturday night I won a gorgeous framed , limited edition duck print! I have already hung it in my livingroom .
|Junior Hunt Title|
This weekend we are entered in a Barnhunt Trial. We have not been to one in 3 years! I hoping he remembers what he's looking for!
We have one more Sprinters Trial in October. I am undecided as to whether I will go. We often get snow the end of September and I'm not one to do highway travel on snow covered roads so we'll see.

On July 31 2021 I entered Lync in the Sporting Dog Specialty held in Calgary AB. It has been 2 years since he has been in a show. I was surprised how much more he has matured ! He looked fantastic. H e ended up winning Best of Breed, there were 9 entries. Lync will be 8 years old on the 24th of August. There are alot more things I want to do with him and I'm so thankful he remains in such great shape !

Lync and I had another great weekend. We travelled to Strathmore to compete in a Sprinters trial. Lync had a blast! Sprinters requires the dog to run a 100 yard dash and they are timed. The times are then converted into points. Lync's times were consistent, 9.1, 9.2 or 9.0 in 8 runs. He received enough points for his Novice Sprinter title and is well on his way to his next level. We compete again in August.
