Bart is at it again! We are leaving tomorrow to head to Bloomingdale, OH, to the Mingo Sportsman’s Club for the AKC All Breed Walking National Field Trial, where Bart will be one of 60 competitors!! This is Bart’s last Hurrah in the Field and we are looking forward to showing folks that a Tripawd with a lot of heart can be just as impressive as any other competitor!!
This will punctuate Bart’s career perfectly and we could not ask for a better Retirement Pawty!! At 8 years old and 5 years on 3, it is time to retire from competitive field trials before there is pain and before it is no longer fun. Bart will still be hunting and running around One Day Farm and he is still pursuing his Retrieving Titles, so there is no couch potato-ing in his future for sure!
So, Tripawd Nation – wish us well on our journey to the Nationals!! We are wearing several Tripawd Trinkets – one which will be on my whistle lanyard as a reminder of what this journey has been about – To Have Fun!! To Be.More.Dog!! and To Love The Moment You Are In!! I got a new camera so hoppfully there will be some great photos to post when we get home!!
Love & Wiggles – Darcy & Bart
