CP, HR Yankee Ridge Miss Duffy CD, JH, SH
First place in first obedience class
Opening day of hunting season 2008
Duffy is a good looking, 65 pound, yellow female that loves to please. She has a muscular build, a square head, and that good dark pigment. She is a quiet and very affectionate pet, but in the field she has unstoppable drive. She has hunted wild pheasant and quail in Nebraska and South Dakota for the past six years and loves every minute in the field.
Duffy has been an extremely healthy dog, she has had no illnesses or lameness problems. She does not have allergies and does not require a special diet.
In addition to hunting we participate in AKC, and most recently UKC, hunt tests. Duffy has achieved her Senior Hunting (SH) title with AKC. In the UKC hunt tests she obtained her Seasoned Retriever title. I hope to continue next year to obtain her HRCH title.
I ventured into the AKC obedience classes for the first time ever with Duffy. Our first attempts proved very successful as Duffy received the highest score the first two shows we attended and she received a couple of nice awards as seen in the photo above.
Duffy is a certified Pet Partner with the Delta Society to participate in Animal-Assisted therapy activities.
Our most recent adventure was briefly training for a hunt test last spring, with the American Pointing Labrador Association (APLA). Duffy was pregnant during the training and at the hunt test. She comes from pointing lines and passed her test with flying colors.
