Kanna Riverside, Japan — The Tachibana Bird Dog Club held its spring trial March 3. We used Kanna Riverside venue in North Japan.

The weather was cloudy and rainy to bad weather.

The president thanked the many people who supported the trial.

Two stakes were offered — an Open and Amateur Shooting Dog. Good winners were chosen by the judges.

In the Open Shooting Dog, first was Casserole, pointer male owned and handled by Tatsuo Ishino. He had three mannerly finds and a strong finish. Second was Silver Rail Sugar, pointer female owned and handled by Satoshi Kikuchi. Silver Rail was all good,  with a searching forward race, three finds and a commendable finish. Placed third was Railway Rock, pointer male owned and handled by Yonezo Imai. He had a good forward race and three finds.

In the Amateur Shooting Dog, first was Caladen’s Rail Knot, pointer male owned and handled by Tokio Iino. Rail Knot was forward with a good searching race in which he scored two finds and finished well.
