11/1/09 MD DelBay RC  New Master Hunter Title!!!  -  Redlion's Notorious** MH WDQ CJH CGC   "Thor" qualified today for the 5th leg and completed the Master Hunter title. It was achieved with a little excitement along the way. On Saturday the fist test was a walkup and a triple with pheasants, a long land blind and an honor. Thor had trouble picking up the 3rd shot pheasant and went back several times to where the bird lay between hay bales. With a lot of whistling he finally retrieved the pheasant to my hand but oh boy, it was totally breasted out and raw, not a feather on the whole front and innards hanging out. No wonder he was a little reluctant to pick up the bird. The judge apologized for the condition of the thrown bird and adjusted the scoring accordingly as Thor had lined  right to the mark. The second test Saturday was a triple land/water combination and most dogs cheated the water on the middle duck. Both days tests were in the rain.  Sunday morning was a short water blind, diversion bird, long water blind then a water double.  Thor lined out well to the short blind and on the way back a diversion duck is shot from a winger and lands directly in front of the dog. The dog is to swim right past the diversion but leave it alone, come back in and deliver the bird he is carrying, then go pick up the 12 feet or so and get the diversion bird, then you continue with the long water blind, then a water double. Well, on the way back from the short blind with duck in mouth, Thor took three long strides in the water (ignoring my very loud come in whistles) leaped off the peninsula onto the diversion bird, went under the water and came up with not only the bird he was carrying but also the diversion duck, both in his mouth, swam 15 feet to shore and delivered them both to me at one time!  The judges weren't sure what to do so had to consider the rule which is - the dog cannot spit out the bird he is carrying and pickup the other duck-- he didn't-- he kept one in the mouth and grabbed the 2nd and brought in both..  So I was allowed to continue the test!  He did a reasonable job on long water blind and hammered the double retrieve and finished the test with a lot of chuckles and loud applause for his new title!  Owners: Al and Zach Melhus and Jane Pappler.  Handler/Jane.  see his Stud Dog page
