Stella is working on her Open title and earned her second Q this morning with a first place in the small division. One more to go! In the afternoon outing we found both rats and did the climb but timed out before I could convince her to tunnel, therefore no Q. After waiting for many hours she was (and is, typically) more sedate in the PM trials so she both hunts slower and indicates less actively. We burned up a lot of our time finding those rats. Finding the rats is critical, though, so she did the most important part just fine. No brag topic for Dundee. While he did not Q in Novice in his two tries, he didn't pee in the ring either, so that was better than usual On his first run he should have Q'd but I failed to call his lackadaisical indication of what turned out to be the live tube after all. I need to calibrate better as he is not particularly prey driven. In our defense, his mother Sammy failed to Q as well, with a much better handler. Since our club put on an eye clinic this weekend I could only attend one day of this barnhunt in St Helens. Maybe later in the fall we'll get that final leg for Stella.
