Prince Charming earned his Grand Championship with ease, winning his final point in Indiana on Sunday, Oct. 26th.  We are very thankful to Lisa Bettis and Ryan Wolfe for showing him to perfection and taking such great care of our boy.

Prince Charming is coming home to mature a bit more before returning to the show ring for a specials career.  He is going to spend this winter working on his Senior Hunter title.  We are so proud of him!

Last weekend was all about Tollers.  Mitch chaired the field events for the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever Club’s National Specialty.  The weather was perfect, the dog work great, and the judge’s fantastic.  Thank you to Melissa Savage who chaired the 2014 National, a herculean task we know! Thank you to our field judges Patty McCabe and Tom Manion (BRT), Ed Zawodny and Leslie Phillips (WC) and Joe Smithberger and Bob Bush (WCI/WCX)

No event of this size can go on without great workers.  Thanks to all who helped out, but a special shout out to Patty’s husband Rob for pitching in and to Beckie Swetlic for marshalling.  We would also like to thank Thunder Equipment for their generous donation and Presque Isle RC for the loan of their equipment.

Mitch’s own Toller, Hollywood, dusted himself off, put on his show clothes and got a placement in the 7-9 Veteran class.  Thank you to Bryana Pierce for making him look so good.  After the show, Hollywood went out and got down and dirty in the field and earned his WCI.
