Heart of Texas Spaniel Club

November 8-9, 2008 – Manor, Texas

Buck and Elaine Grabowski’s Double Dog Dare Ya Ranch ranch was the venue for the fall 2008 Spaniel hunt test held by the Heart of Texas Spaniel Club. A field of 22 spaniels competed in both the Saturday and Sunday events; this field was primarily made up of English Springer, English Cocker and Boykin Spaniels.

Judging the event on both days were Wayne Tissue and Venee Gardner in the junior stakes and Venee Gardner and Kent Rudolph in both the senior and master stakes, we wish to thank the judges for taking time from their busy schedules to come and judge this fine field of spaniels entered in this event.

Very nice weather greeted all in attendance with very cool mornings and moderating temperatures during the day, a very dry summer and fall had affected the cover on the property and several of the ponds used in the event were very low.

Event Chairman Buck Grabowski and his entire committee worked very hard to assure that the event began promptly at the published times and proceeded along nicely both days. All in attendance seemed to enjoy the Texas hospitality from the club and its members.
