Arizona Pointing Dog Club Trial 2015
AZPDC Field Trial ‑ August 8 - 9, 2015
Cory, Josie and Nellie participated in the August AZPDC trial held at Kendricks Park near Flagstaff, Arizona. While Cory had already qualified to run in the 2015 Tournament of Champions, this was Josie's chance to be among the finalists, and it was Nellie's first experience in a trial. All of the dogs hunted with enthusiasm but field conditions prevented many dogs from finding birds this particular weekend. Heavy rain the night before and intermittant showers kept the birds hunkered down, and high pollen interfered with the dogs' ability to catch scent. Overall scores were low for most dogs, including Cory who managed to place third in the Shooting Dog class on the first day. Josie gained some points for her efforts, but not enough to place. Nellie (and Linda) were there for the fun and photos!
