Nine month old Tommy ran in his first trial - the horseback Shooting Dog Derby stake and he is starting to figure things out a bit. At this stage I certainly did not expect a placement, and he did not earn one. Fooling around with puppies is great fun, seeing them develop day by day. Tommy will be going to Summer Camp in North Dakota at the end of June for exposure to lots of sharp-tailed grouse, and will be hunted for the first time this Fall.
