Nowhere appear the results of the TAN water test taken on the 8th of October by 2 of our dogs.
I think it is no small feat for such a young dog to obtain the TAN water test. I'm talking about Floirac Déjà Vue
who at 2.5 months or so was bringing the dummy out of the water( just like Booly Wooly). At that age, she could have passed the TAN with flying colors. Unfortunately, there was no place to take the test. Gun shot, character test all was done on the 8th.
Then Fanny Forigoler
who has also been training for a while,and had consequently developped a chest like Dolly Parton... did fabulous.She is incredible how she lunnnnnnnnges into water. Bravo Brigitte for training her so well!Brigitte had driven up from Avignon 350 kms that morning to change cars and drive another 350 to get to where the event was taking place. Doing it on a Friday is not easy for those of us who do have a job, for a living.
They were both a real treasure, oops, pleasure to watch.And I haven't even talked about Thelma ( Tchin Tchin de ma perte aux Loups) and her achievement but she deserves her own post.
I have some videos, but I am having a problem posting them on YouTube and I don't know why. I will find a solution.
I would to add, in passing, that in France, you need a "working test" to become Champion.TAN or BCE 3rd category will get you up the cotation grid, that we all forget about! We shouldn't becuse it shows a dog's worth.
It must be done before age 3, unless one has a special permission..
I would also mention that it is important to do at least the TAN...for a waterdog.
