Chi, a name meaning 'the energy of life' was a charming, high energy and very intense puppy who initially went home with
a long-time obedience handler. After several months, it became obvious that Chi, although learning quickly and trying hard, was not as interested in obedience
work as he was in field activities -- retrieving and swimming. After some discussion, he went to join his sister Violet in California with top hunt test competitor
Bruce Hayes. We are happy to report that Chi went four for four and completed his Junior Hunter title in March 2018, then came back
with 5 Senior Hunter passes in a row during the summer and early fall of 2018, earning his title in October at 22 months of age. He became the third of
Panda's puppies to become a Qualifying Get for her Outstanding Dam title. He is now working on his MH title and has several passes towards the five
needed to title. Congratulations to Bruce and Chi!
