Sahara's Master Run.


Sahara started Saharaís Master Run:

Sahara started this spring with two Master passes June 3rd and 4th. The next weekend she went to an all breed show and won the breed. I totally shaved her coat off for the National Field trial last November, as the ground cover was full of fox tails and brush. Good thing her coat grows fast. This weekend back to the field for more chances at her Master title. Sahara didnít run in Junior or Senior Hunter, consequently AKC requires that you get six Master passes instead of five. So going into this weekend Sahara had to pass all four Master tests to get her six passes for her MH title.
Almost every judge that she ran under was a shorthair or wirehair field trial breeder/judge. The tests that she ran in this weekend were hosted by the shorthair club and the Brittany clubs. There were two sets of grounds, so Sahara had to compete at one test in the morning and then drive to the next grounds to compete in the second test about four hours later.
She had many many difficult situations, including several doubles, meaning there were two birds in one spot. Once a shorthair broke off of his honor and went racing by her chasing one of the two chukkar. Once a visla took forever to honor and Sahara had to patiently wait. Once the visla stole Saharaís point and then the gunner missed the bird all together. Sahara had to honor several dogs that were standing in grass and scotch broom that was three to four feet tall. All of her honors were really nice. You canít say anything when you dog goes up to honor and she stopped solidly behind every dog of many breeds.
In one of Saharaís tests, the gunner missed three birds. And then their was the one where Sahara was retrieving her bird, bird in her mouth and a big male shorthair came running up and stole the bird right out of Saharaís mouth.
I was really proud of Sahara for handling so many difficult situations. I only recently trained her to retrieve and she has been retrieving beautifully to hand. She has been so much fun and she carries so many of Hadjiís character traits, that she had touched my heart deeply. Paul always tells her, ďSahara, Youíre a dogĒ, in fun jest. I think he wants to remind me that she is a dog.

Thanks to all of you for your support. Sahara has half of her Field Championship points and will continue in All Breed Field trials in August. She won two seconds in April that would have almost finished her FC. Darn it. You have to get first over all of the Field Champions.

Sahara ďCh Setír Ridgeís Everlasting MH Therapy DogĒ Sahara is a double Hadji ďDual Ch Setír Ridgeís Solid Gold CGC CDX MH granddaughter. She has won six group Iís between field trials, hunt tests, and having a litter last year. Of which her son Ch Setír Ridge Tartanís Power Point JH has already finished his Championship and JH. Sahara also won a Bred By Group I at Eukanuba, BOS at Westminster and BOS and an Award of Merit at ESAA National Specialties.
