Recently, I had the honour of speaking at the 2014 Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Club of America judges' seminar in Jerome, Idaho. I knew that the WPGCA folks are a dedicated group hunters and breeders, so I figured meeting them and seeing their dogs in the field would be a real treat. But I had never been to Idaho, so I had no idea what it would be like out there. Well, long story short, I was right about the WPGCA folks and their dogs; fantastic people, great dogs! But what about Idaho? Well, here are a few of the things I found out while I was there.
There is a great big, CRAZY sky in Idaho
The land is gnarly, but beautiful
And so are the plants
The WPGCA folks love their dogs
And their dogs love them
The WPGCA is like a big family
Where even the youngest members are crazy about dogs
And the oldest dogs can feel the love
The dogs LOVE to hunt!
And chill out with their people
The test is run in a beautiful valley in Idaho
And the judges are so focused on judging, they have little time to take it all in
But at the end of the day, I think they all know how lucky they are to be able to spend some time...
With good dogs
And good people
Under a crazy Idaho sky
