youtube of Puzzle at 7 singles May 1,2010
7 Singles is a "friendly" competition amongst the field people here in Calgary. Every dog is guaranteed 3 birds and then the marks get significatly harder and harder. Successful teams get invited back to the next mark. Puzzle made it to the 6th Mark which proved a bit too much for him ..... a 300 yard mark with a retired gunner and running past a previous mark. I couldn't be happier with his speed and attitude!!! Can't wait until next year ;0)
