A very busy weekend in the field

This was a very busy weekend for both of us. I went to Maryland to our first field trials of the season, and John was judging a Deer Search Blood Tracking competition in Campbell, NY. We will report on both events as soon as we can, probably in the next couple of days. For now I will just post two pics from Maryland.
The board showing field trial results on Saturday. It was Quenotte's first field trial and she placed 1st in a stake of 20 on Saturday and 3rd in a stake of 15 on Sunday.

Willette Brown's Tracker Barbie had an adventurous weekend as well. I believe it was her first field trial.
Tracker Barbie is present on Facebook, where she has quite a few friends.
It was a great weekend even though the weather was horrendous. A strong driving rain, gusting winds, low temperature with occasional thunder and lightning did not keep field trial fanatics away from chasing rabbits with their dachshunds, but at the end of the day I was soaked to my underwear. On my way back to motel, I drove by a turned over semi. When I checked the local news I realized how how serious the situation was.

I'm becoming obsessed with this blood tracking. I find myself visiting this blog almost daily for any update.

It is a good obsession :-)
I wish I had more time and do daily updates, but can't do. BTW, tonight we will be breeding Tommy to another visiting female wirehaired dachshund - Lily bred and owned by Laurel Whistance-Smith. Right now I am working on pictures that I took at field trials.

Congrats to Quenotte! Glad to hear she rocked the field trial this past weekend! On a side note I am going to have to look up Tracker Barbie on Facebook. I am intrigued by the idea.

Looking forward to your updates on the field trial and the Deer Search competition.

Thanks Beth! It takes a while to catch up with "stuff" back home even when we are gone for just a few days. Updates are coming really soon.
