Years ago we had a litter with one pup we could not place in a home. The litter had been picked over and this little guy was passed up. Dave Meisner and Steve Smith were hunting with us and we offered the pup to them free. We could not even give him away. He was later placed with a 19 yr. old female college student who wanted to field trial him. Her folks field trialed so she had some guidance. Stacy did the training herself and pretty much dedicated her life to "Blitz". "Blitz" became an A.K.C. Fld. Ch. and Amateur Fld. Ch. I watched Blitz run in the nationals and he was absolute perfection. Steady on eight finds, with a covey of chuckers flushing right in his face. He finished the National and National Amateur courses clean and running 200 yds. ahead of the gallery. I asked a judge why he didn't place and was told he was on point too much and they didn't get to see him run. That was my last field trial. Blitz passed away several years ago and we know Stacy still misses him. This young woman made "Blitz" what he was because she put so much into him. If Stacy can accomplish so much, then I guess that makes all my excuses invalid! DWT
