Event: DC Weimaraner Club Hunt Test
Dates: 10/20/2006 - 10/21/2006

Another beautiful October day testing bird dogs. The DC Weim club held its annual Fall Hunt Test at the York Pointer and Setter club in Wellsville, Pennsylvania. Between tasks at the senior/master field, we got in a few shots.
The rising sun hits the top of the trees as the first Junior Hunter brace makes its way through their back course. At over 200 yards, you can really appreciate why hunters wear blaze orange.

Getting more excited by the moment, Rosie gets to meet one of the test's marshals (horseback, on the left, with a bag full of quail she'll plant on the back course) and her other judge.

Riley's qualified four times in a row, so he's got his JH title and a smile from his Mom. His achievement is all the sweeter when you take into account his circumstances: Riley was a rescue dog that's got himself a loving, permanent family who are making sure he gets to be a bird dog.
