(PAW2009 23/52)

My father-in-law trains gundogs and competes with them in working tests and field trials. (I think the difference is that the tests are run with training dummies while the trials are at an actual shoot, with real birds.)

On Saturday we had a grand day out at a test just through Bellaghy. It was a much nicer afternoon up there than we had morning in Lisburn, at a nice wee spot by the Bann. I didn’t even know where Bellaghy was until we drove through it to get there.

This was Paddy, one of the other competitors.
