|12-9 Virginia - Rappahanock RC held their hunt test today
in the snow and cold water! Real chesapeake hunting sceniero for sure.
Quite a few dogs didn't care for the water but I'm proud to say that Thor
did excellent with Al handling and completed Thor's JH title! Congrats
on a job well done. 4 for 4. Redlion's Notorious
JH CWC WDX at 16 months.
12-10 - new developments with the puppies! Redlion's Not for Sale,
mother of 7 five day old chesapeakes, today got 3 more! Only they are
yellow labs. A friend called in dire need of a 2nd mom for 3 yellow
lab pups as she had trouble with their mother. They were rushed down
to Gina in MD who has Sale's litter and mama Sale took them right in, so now
is raising 10! Gina, Thomas and Sale and babies are doing great!
Thanks so much for saving these Lab babies!

There were 350 entries and some classes had many entries. It was a great
show and even those that didn't get a ribbon were looking good and handled
well. Thanks to Brian Summers, Debbie and Bernie Rivas, Gina Downin &
Thomas and my sister Jean Gilmore and her friend Chris for running dogs back

supporters and taking pictures!
