The day was perfect with white clouds floated in bright blue sky, wispy here, puffy there. The fields had tall stems of annual and biennial grass which waved in the light breeze. Shrubs and small trees provided the backdrop on the landscape as the gallery of onlookers moved down the path and handlers moved into position with their eager dogs. Artemis entered her dog in the Bird Dog Field trials which is a great way to get some off-season action. Field Trials offer practical demonstrations of a dog's ability to perform, in the field, the functions for which it was bred. Her dog is a beautifully trained animal which moved left, right, or forward or halted by whistled command. The bond between her and dog is a thing to behold, a true joy!
