Luckiamute's TD Test
Rickreall, Oregon

Tess earned an AKC Tracking Dog (TD) title at Luckiamute's Tracking Test held in Rickreall, Oregon on November 5th, 2000 under judge's Carol Pernicka and Ralph Swingle!

Check out the beautiful tracking fields they used and the near perfect tracking weather that day--@ 45 degrees, overcast with a pretty good breeze.

Lucky #5!
I had a premonition a while ago that we would pull and pass track #5. At Luckiamute we were catalog entry #5, I drew the 5th track, 5 out of 10 dogs passed and the test was run on November 5th! #5 is our new lucky number!

Haven't seen these posted yet. Maybe the judges (Carol Pernicka and Ralph Swingle) will add some comments.

Luckiamute Dog Training Club, Nov. 5, Rickreall, Oregon 10 TD tracks, 5 passes. Cool and windy; the drizzle held off until after the testing.

Littlefield's Finnegan - Pembroke Welsh Corgi - owner Jill Jones (Finn is 11 years old and spent his first 9 years, before coming to live with Jill, as a couch potato, as she phrases it. His joy at having the "job" of tracking inspires us all.)

Vangard Renaissance - Pembroke Welsh Corgi - owner Jill Jones

Canami's Working Girl - Shetland Sheepdog - owner Pat Kalbaugh (This little girl looked like she was having the time of her life, so bouncy and full of play. They came down from Juneau, AK, so it's great that their trip was successful.)

Sweetbay's Rigel CD - Newfoundland - owners Barbara Adams & James Pushnik

Sweetbay's Keaton - Newfoundland - breeder/owners Judi & Ellis Adler

Several of us who did not pass this weekend will be trying again at Portland DOC next weekend.

Raelene Gorlinsky
