Py was the 2nd puppy in Panda's third litter. Out of 9 puppies, 8 of them were girls,
so we had a lot to choose from -- but Py stood out from the first with her brains, personality and looks. She loves people but isn't
excessively needy; is very driven to retrieve and cooperates well with the program, and learns like the wind. She is also cuddly and adorable!
She was supposed to start testing at the senior level in early spring 2020; this was delayed because of the pandemic. We took her out to
one test in October and she passed her first senior leg, then finished up her Senior Hunter title in 4 tests in a row in April
and May 2021. She went on immediately into Master tests, and passed 5 in a row from May to her title on August 1. She passed 10 AKC high-level
hunt tests in a row, which is quite an achievement. In her first Master test, one pro standing nearby said, "You are taking her to the Master National, right?"
and I had to explain that she didn't qualify for this year's MN since this was her very first Master test. We are so proud of her!
she got standing ovations from the gallery and compliments from the judges on a number of her series runs, for her style, marking ability, and
her precision blinds. We plan to breed her on her next heat cycle (possibly May 22) and are looking forward to some great puppies from her!
