Over Labor Day weekend team Quantonas headed up to Cheyenne National Grasslands in Lisbon, ND where we competed in field trials held by the Twin Cities German Wirehaired Pointer Club and the German Shorthaired Pointer Club of MN. On Friday's Derby, Duck (Quantonas Sink or Swim) pulled off a win in the GSP Open Derby and Breeze (Red Bird's Blustery Day) placed Third with Dr.Laura Miller and Ms. Grace Ann Lawson judging! On Sunday, Breeze stepped up her game and won the Open Derby stake at the GWP trial under the judgement of Mr.Dave Pomfret and Ms.Grace Ann Lawson! Nothing is more exciting than seeing the lightbulb turn on for the young dogs!
