MILLY & BREN
LABRADOR RETRIEVER, BITCH, 08/12/09
Having watched the competition last year I knew it was a challenging experience with top quality dogs, so when I was picked for the team this year I was excited and proud but also nervous. This far exceeds anything Bren and I have done before. I have a mature dog so I felt this was the year I needed to push us both and step outside our comfort zone.
After weeks of serious training, both in group sessions and as individuals the teams for the National Gundog Competition have been chosen.
Kirkbourne Spaniels will again be fielding two teams ... "Cooper" and "Merlin". The teams named as a tribute to the late John Cooper.
The final countdown to the competition has begun, so it is time for you to "meet the teams". Posted in a series of blogs over the next few days, meet each member and find out what it's like to be chosen to represent Kirkbourne Spaniels.
