Despite the rather damp and chilly weather, there was a good turnout of hardy parents and children for the second annual Packwood Gundog Trial held in the school’s beautiful grounds in Ruyton XI Towns.
Many had brought more than one dog to be put through its paces by event organiser and Packwood deputy head Nick Jones. They were faced with various tests typical of the sort a gundog may be called upon to perform in the field. Mr Jones’ golden labrador Logie performed the task first, followed by each of the contestants.
In the end, four dogs stood out as potential winners but only one of them could perform the tricky, final blind retrieve, and the Scott family’s impressive black lab, Mist, was judged the winner for the second time.
