Monique Anthony writes news of the fabulous (nearly 14 years old) Oliver:- Oliver had fun today at a Barn Hunt trial in Portland, CT. He was in the Senior class and had 3½ minutes to locate 4 tubes containing live rats hiddenin hay bales. With bales piled 3 levels high, 3 dirty litter tubes (without rats) to trick up the dogs, and many hiding locations, it was a very challenging course. He had already qualified twice in this class at trials a month ago. He ran round finding rat after rat after rat and qualified for the 3rd time earning his Senior Barn Hunt Title. There is a possibility he is only the 2nd dog in the country to earn the RATS title but that hasn’t been confirmed yet.
Congratulations to everybody!
