So focused was I on this retrieve that I rammed straight into 🙎🏻♀️ legs - just couldn’t see where I was going! 🙈
It’s the weekend! Any guesses what I’m going to be up to?! This was my #werkwerkwerk#eyesontheprize

Another busy weekend working for me! There are worse places...!
Hope all you pups had a good one! 🐕🐾
Throwback to summer. Flatcoated retrievers championship in Finland, my only 3yo Reno did something unbeliavable! First day he rock the nome-B trial like a king and received open class 1st prize (this was 2nd to us, so now also Reno competes in winner class), was Gun's choice the best dog in the trial and was selected to next days Final. I did't expected much from us, another 6 dogs was from winner class, but Reno, with his crazy working-attitude, got all the birds up and ended up 3rd place in the Championship. Also today Reno was Gun's choice, along with the prize for the youngest dog on the finals.
My crazy, strong, work-a-holic maniac did it. ❤ This was also my 1st time in finals. In my wildest dreams I didn't expect we could be on podium. The final's retrieves were winner class level, Reno wasn't never before done so challenging retrieves. But he does what ever is needed to get the bird up, no matter how hard it is, his self-confidence is neverending. He thinks he's the best hunting dog in the world. 😄 With that attitude he never gives up before he has found the game. Sometimes he could listen the handler better.. He isn't always the most obedient dog. "Leave me alone, I know what I'm doing." And I'm 100% sure that he knows exactly what he is doing. The judges might sometimes disagree. 😂

What a busy week it has been! Having spent the summer training, and the early part of the season being tested, I finally got my first go at a double gun day! I did myself proud, retrieving pheasant, partridge and duck! 🦆🦆🦆 This is me with Ruby just before the first drive started...
