Yesterday I received an email with great news from Canada, from Sandra and Dale, the owners of Hanna von den Donau-Wirbeln.
"Hanna has some more good news for you. Yesterday she passed her NAVHDA NA with a prize 1, perfect score of 112. Hanna did amazing. Pointed two birds and was steady to the flush, returning to heal position beside Dale, and following his re-direction after each one. She tracked the pheasant like a pro, and returned with it to hand. Dale managed to keep her enthusiastic water entry to a minimum, but she still outshone the other competitors in her determined entry into the water. Both bumpers were returned to Dale and presented to him with a sit in front. Ms Hanna impressed the judges so much that the senior judge actually came up to Dale after the scores were announced and asked if he could buy Hanna from us. The answer was a most resounding NO, but it was flattering to be asked. I thought Dale’s shirt buttons were going to pop he was so proud of her."
