LongMeadow's Rose Bay Cricket ("Cricket") ~ Photo taken at a few days after her six month birthday while she was completing her first "Started Dog Test". Cricket is from our Canvas & Mel Litter.

..."Well what a weekend for us! Cricket passed both days in started and being the youngest dog at the trial. She amazed many people and every time we came off the line we had an audience and clapping to boot. On Saturday we had the ending of Ivan coming through the area and had sheets and sheets of hard rain all day long and it was cold. There were whitecaps on the pond we were using and it was hard for the handlers to see the ducks in the water much less the dogs, but she plowed out there looking holding those shoulders and head out of the water and found the duck and came in. Perseverance was the name of the game for her and for a young puppy to have it so strong and serious at her age is truly amazing not only to the gallery but to us. Quiting is not an option for her when she knows there is a duck down. Saturday was great in that bad weather but yesterday she was an old hat to the game she nailed all marks both in water and on land and the gallery went wild on her last water retrieve"...
