Mr G Hodgson, Mr A Hewer, Mr T West & Mr M Dixon
The trial concluded with what appeared to be a simple retrieve sending
dogs from a rape field into an adjoining pasture. However all the remaining
dogs failed to retrieve even though the bird was dead in open ground and
in spite of some dogs passing within a few feet of it.
So no awards were made.
The Guns choice was a split decision between 2 dogs and so in light of
their being no other awards, guns choice was awarded to both:
Mrs P Robertson with Brighthurst Gorse of Warpersmoss
Miss C Smith with Pechasi Kingston
