In addition, we have for the first time from the kennel “My Dear Fellow” a Irish Glen of imaal terrier breeding group. That was for us a new experience and gave us a giant fun.
Finally the mighty Oliver is earning even more honours! “An amazing day was had by Oliver at the Performance Scent Dogs trial in Auburn, New Hampshire on Saturday. He placed 2nd in the Novice Distance class, 1st in Advanced Containers & Advanced Distance, and TITLED in the Novice Exterior & Novice Distance classes by earning his 3rd leg in each! I am so proud of Oliver and his nose!” So say all of us Monique.
Very well done everybody.
