Stellar Retrievers had a great time at the North Dakota Retriever Club Hunt Test June 15-17. Thank you to the hard working club members and the quality judging of Tom McKenzie and Roger Moltzen. Congratulations to all who received passing scores. Stellar is very proud of our young dogs in their first Master test. Jim owned by Mike and Janice Woodbury, Jimmy owned by Doug and Amber Bishop, Sunny owned by Lee Hanes and Shane owned by Stellar Retrievers, stepped up to the plate and hit a home run. Creedmoor, owned by Jeff and Karin Parker received a passing score which gave him his Master Title and a trip to the big dance in Idaho this fall. WAY TO GO CREEDMOOR!

March 28, 2021 by Marta Morris

Stellar had a good weekend with friends and clients at the Alamo Retriever Club Hunt Test this past weekend in D’Hanis Tx. Thank you to Alamo for their hard work in putting on a quality event on the beautiful Seco Valley Ranch. A very special thank you to the Millers for allowing the event to be held there. Wayne Paterson and John Green put on three challenging series with the help of Mother Nature continually varying the conditions. Jack Morris ran the following dogs receiving passes: Major and Cody owned by Gary Witherspoon, and Creedmoor owned by Jeff and Karin Parker. Marta Morris  successfully handled the Morris’s personal dogs Lena, Baylee, and Glory to passes. Congratulations to Joal Harper on Hitch’s pass, Karin Parker who handled her dog Maverick to a pass, and Marion Woolie’s Breaux who passed and became qualified for Master National 2021 in Idaho. Congratulations to all those who had passing score this weekend. It was a wonderful way to spend time and work with friends.

Stellar’s last northern test is on the books. It was a successful weekend with 13 out of 15 Master passes and 2 for 2 Senior passes. The weather was a little unsettled Friday morning with a rain/lightening delay, but the day found sunshine in the afternoon with just enough of a rain late in the day to produce a beautiful rainbow stretched across the sky. Our thanks to the Hinckley Retriever Club and Chuck Beckmann, Dan Berglove, Ed Thibodeaux, Sonia Liedman, Steve Paulson and all the other volunteers like Sarah Willett, Chad Sweep, Gordie Schlichting and other I did not know by name who stepped up to keep the tests moving. Thank you to Lin Gelbmann and Tom Newell for their Master tests with good bird and blind placement. Thanks to Sharon Sweep and Sid Sontag for what Jack referred to as the “Senior National” with some very meaty birds and blinds. All these tests showed areas for trainer/handlers to work on for future tests. Stellar congratulates all those who received passing score but also acknowledges the commitment all  handlers make to play this sport. Stellar looks forward to running in the HRC tests next year.

Stellar retrievers just completed Mississippi Headwaters Retriever Club’s Master/Senior Test which started Friday 8/21 and finished 8/23. The Master test started with 84 dogs and finished with 51 dogs. A huge “thank you” to Budd Denny for Chairing this event and Becky, Doug, Shannon, Ernie, Jerrie, and the rest of the MHRC for all their hard work and planning. Thank you to Sarah Willett and Wilson “Boogie” Lejeune for setting up some very challenging tests (the blinds were very well placed). When it was all said and done, Stellar passed 16 out of 16 Master dogs, (Karin Parker did an awesome job handling her dog Maverick with 10’s on both the land and water blinds in the last series), and passed 2 for 2 Senior dogs. It was the first test for both Senior dogs, thank you the Shannon Heifort and Wendy Mattinen for their tests and time in the Judges chair.
