Default Setter Club of New England 100th Anniversary

The Setter Club of New England is celebrating it's 100th anniversary this year, and this weekend is the 84th running of their premier field trial event. The two day field trial will be taking place at MassWildlife's Francis B. Crane WMA in East Falmouth, MA. It's run under American Field/US Complete trial rules (no kill) on liberated quail. 80 +/- pointing dogs will be competing in Puppy, Derby, Shooting Dog and Gun Dog events in two classes, professional handlers (Saturday) and amateur handlers (Sunday). Feel free to visit anytime during the two days.

My youngest setter, and the always "under development" Lucy, will be running in Amateur Shooting Dog. I have high hopes for her but would just be pleased with one broke bird find, a solid back and to make it through the course without getting DQ'd. It will be a very, very competitive field of dogs.

When I picture a setter in my mind, that is the picture I see. What a beautiful dog! Good luck in the trial but no matter the outcome, you have a beautiful gun dog.

Best of luck...but you know -- you are already a winner with a pup like that.
