ROXIE Earns her JH Title
“Nat/Int JA Fairhaven’s Blu Sky’s the Limit, JH, NAVHDA NAII”
Yesterday, 4/27/08 Roxie earned the 4th and final leg towards her Junior Hunter title. It has been a long and sometimes frustrating but fun road to this milestone. It took her six tests to earn the four legs. In this test, her goal was to find the bird, point it, hold the point until I reached the bird to flush it and then fire the blank pistol. Sounds easy enough, but when you have an overly excited puppy that just wants to catch the bird, it takes a lot of training and patience. Next is a little break and then to train for Senior Hunter. I have decided to learn to shoot this summer so that when bird season comes around next fall, I can take her out and do some real hunting while she is training. Not sure yet what I will do with any birds I actually shoot.
In other news, the garage is coming along. We had the concrete poured in the back bay of the new garage so now the boat and a car can fit nicely inside. We still have to grade and level the back yard area so that the RV can go back there. I think that will be later in the summer. For now, we have a few things to finish up and then we will finish up the laundry room so we can stop loosing heat/cooling through the un-sheet rocked walls.
We plan to get out this summer and get back on the boat and do more camping. We really missed that last summer while working on the house. Our first camping trip is next weekend with some friends to Camp Far West.
That’s all for now. Much love to all. Renee & Tate
