TDX - November 6th 2022

 

 

In spite of the heroic efforts by our judges Eibhlin Glennon & Carla Wolter in plotting tracks yesterday in wind, up to 60mph, and rain, and of the valiant tracklayers who stuck it out, there were no passes today at Pecatonica Tracking Club, Inc's 5 dog TDX test.

The dogs struggled in the tall prairie grass. It was mostly cloudy, the winds were still blowing quite briskly, and the temp was in the 50's.

Kudos to our tracklayers and cross-tracklayers for spending a miserable weekend to give the five large-breed dogs an opportunity: Beth Walker, Al Comstock, Penny DuBernat, Jane Wiedel, Beth Comstock, & Ed Dvorsky. Nancy Einwich was the disappointed Test Secretary, Penny DuBernat was the exhausted Head Tracklayer, & Pam German - Keeper of the Poles.

Until next April for our TD, keep on tracking - Jan July
