The IGL Retriever Championship 2019 is held on 25th-27th of November at Glenalmond Estate (Scotland). For the first day 64 (!) competitors have been qualified. The ground was quite challenging and not always easy to walk... ...sometimes quite gully... ...and not very good weather conditions! Daniel and Ziva succeed at the 1st and 2nd round and are through to the second day! A misty second day... ...but everybody tries to concentrate and watch...! What a long line! 3rd round done (one clear retrieve and an eyewipe) - Daniel and Ziva are in the 3rd day! A cold but nice third day... ...and in the 4th round Ziva gave a 3-dog eyewipe! And than she couldn't find the next retrieve and was called up! Everybody on it's way to the last drive... ...final drive on ducks! The 4 judges Lynn Mitchell, Keith Bedford, Phil Parkins and Damian Newman check their booklets... And that was it: End of the day, end of a phantastic Championship in a gorgeous scenery.
