    Hi FCS Springer,

    I am swamped the past few weeks with the break from wet weather. Trying to get all the orchard replants in so I don't have to put them in cold storage which I don't really want to do.

    Unfortunately I've spent little time with him lately due to my schedule but in a week or so I should have a nice break coming. My email address is rgranel@yahoo.com

    I am in the Newman/Gustine area. That is north of Los Banos, east of Merced and Southwest of Modesto/Turlock. Those are the larger metro areas I frequently drive to.

    FC-We have one of your Mn judges out here this weekend. Kevin Rutherford, Any idea what he likes in a springer? Hopefully Chase will be up for the trial. As he took off on a retreive and came back limping today. Any inside scoop on how I should handle the dogs for Kevin might help. Thanks Springerchaser.

    I know I heard it for two years abount not having the water test done. But they were always in July or august when the fish were biting on the ocean. Riley is out of Jeff Miller's Solar and Gary Davis female sis,which was a littermate to a dog scout that I got a FC with. Scout got me hooked on trials as I took both the first in the Am and the open on the same weekend. And that was the first time I did the all age.That will never happen again I'm sure.
