Well my first field trial didn't go so good...My brace didn't jump a rabbit in the full 20 minutes so my dog didn't get scored. After a night of sleeping in the truck for 2 hours I was pretty disgusted. I got back to the clubhouse to find out my dad made the second round w/ his beagle. They ran them off and he made the third round. He didn't make the final round but he placed 3rd out of twenty dogs. I had a good time, I just wish my dog would have gotten to run. I aint to sure that my dog is not a little better than dad's. We met some really nice people and had a good time. We are going to go to another one in May and try it again.
