Garvey was awarded a 3rd in a graduate ( his first test for a few years since winning a novice ). Gary Lees homebred Eelyrags dogs ( dam .. Dallandor Heaven Scent) have been consistently placed in the top 3. Lee Loveridge's Eelyrags Poplar has had a COM at a field trial and has been consistently placed in working tests.

Large Munsterlander Club Working Test - Hall Barn, Beaconsfield - 1.7.06.
There were 22 puppies and Trevor Whiter's Russetmantle Idaho was on equal points
as the 4th placed dog but lost out as he had a lesser hunting score, Novice was won by
our boy Vinnie, Dallandor Gyorgy, who only dropped 5.5 points out of 100. He
actually achieved 40 out of 40 for his hunting! Following on from his Res.C.C. last
week we thought we couldnt be more thrilled, but then Jennifer Hurley and Harry,
Dallandor Vanquish were awarded 2nd in Novice only 1 point behind.

To complete a super day Nigel Dear and Jack, Aldom Red Grouse won Open. There
were 36 entries in Novice and 26 in Open. What a day for the Vizslas! I would like to
mention Simon Scot and his 16 month bitch Gunfield Foxy, who ran in Open as she
recently won Novice, although not placed she did a lovely test for one so young and is
a credit to her handler, watch this space!
