1. PRIZE Blood tracking trial – 400 m/ 3 hrs
At the Danish Retriever Club Midsealand region’s 50 years anniversary event, Momo and I attented the official blood tracking trial. The first level of trials in this discipline is a 400 m trail that has ‘rested’ for three hours. This is Momo’s first trial on this type of work – and she did a great job. So now we will keep on working – and the next level is a trail that has layed for more than 20 hours. Thanks to the judge, Niels Christoffersen, and the trailmakers for an exiting trail – and to the club for a great weekend!
2. BEST BITCH – SWEDISH CAC!
The swedish Spaniel and Retriever Club (SSRK) hosted a national show in Gränna 19. June 2022.
Momo entered open class with 17 entries, so once again it was a large class. (51 entires in all: 13 dogs, 30 bitches, 8 puppies). Judge was Filip Johnsson and he apparently liked Momo, as she won her class with excellent and CCQ. Finally she became second best bitch and as the winning bitch is a swedish champion, the certificate was given to us. What a day!
2. BEST BITCH – res.CAC & res. Nordic CAC
The swedish labrador klub and the swedish kennel klub hosted two shows in Hässleholm on the 21. and 22. May 2022. First day was the labrador club, with judge Judith Charlton. Momo entered a large open class of 22 bitches and got an excellent. Next day judge Sheelin Cutberth placed Momo as 2. winner with CCQ in the open class with 25 entries – and finally as 2. best bitch with res.CAC and res. Nordic CAC. The two show had more than a 100 entries per day.

27.04.2022 – ‘Debutant prøve’ – unofficial
Debut on the new trial ‘Debutant prøve’ in Holløse in Nordsjælland. The trial is on dummies and is –as the name suggests – on a beginners level. Nevertheless only 8 of 25 entries gained 1. prize. And Momo did well this day… Good girl!
20.03.2022 – Unofficial Working Test – UWT
In Krogenberg Hegn DRK arranged a UWT with five posts. Of the 32 participants in beginners class only seven passed. Of the seven, only one was a field trial labrador, which became 3. winner. So six of the seven were all classic type labradors.
Memphis’ daughter Astrid/Nala became 4. winner with a nice score including
2 x 20 point – 11 months old. Momo and I just passed and surprisingly became 7. winner.
12.02.2022 – Unofficial trial – ‘C-prøve’
Today was an unofficial test on dummies (and no water) and first part of the trial Momo did perfectly – four markings of which one of them was thrown as a distraction to begin with and some heelwork. Second part was a ‘free search’ and here there is still room for improvement. We got a 2. prize (very good). I am pleased, as issues we have been working on apparently has been solved.
12.12. 2021 – ‘Brugsprøve’ / Obidence test
Daughter of Memphis and Fluffy, Astrid aka Nala, passed the basic obidience test. She is 8 months old and did everything perfect!
Congratulations to the owner Dragan and the breeder Ole Høj.

Two intense days with four shows! More than 120 entries at each show – and with 24-27 entries in open class bitches you know in advance that it will be a difficult competition.
Still Creekwater Cherish the Moment – Momo – did really well and achieved two CCQ’s this weekend. The first as 3. winner in class judged by Phillipe Lammens – and the second as 5. winner in class by judge Torunn Sørbye.
The two other shows she gained excellent – and made the first cut by judge Anna Geschwindt Hartvig. The fourth judge Matija Ficko liked a different type – and here Momo’s sister Fenna (Creekwater Celebration Time) made the first cut with a nice critique.
