Happy New Year!!

The weather in Walla Walla the last two weeks has been all over the board. We have had short shelve shirt golf weather on day and then 25 degrees the next. There has been rain, fog, and bright sunshine. Oh well could be worse we could have a foot of snow.

The Western Region Board of Directors has been busy finalizing the dates and judging teams for the 2019 testing schedule. The Judges for the spring and fall tests will be posted by mid-January. You will be able to view it at that time on the Western Region web page at:

The Western Region will host one Derby/Zuchtschau and one fall test in 2019. The Derby will be in High River, Alberta, on May 18th & 19th. Randy Blanchard will be the Test Coordinator for this event. Jeff Martin will be the Test Director. Randy can be reached at 1-403-601-1709 or at The fall test (Solms/AZP/VGP/Zuchtschau) will be held in Conrad, MT, on September 21st & 22nd. Jerry Riewer will be the Test Coordinator for the fall test. Jörg Kaltenegger will be the Test Director. You can contact Jerry at 406-450-1214 or

The tests are filling up and we know there are still dogs to enter. Please use the WORD.doc we developed for the Western Region as your entry form. This fillable form will work in you Internet Explorer or Chrome browser, it will not work in Fire Fox. Please click here for the Entry Form.

We are selecting the Judging teams for both tests to avoid conflicts with the dogs that we know plan to enter. You are encouraged to check the Testing Schedule and Judging teams after the middle of January to ensure that you do not enter into a conflict. Once the Judging teams are posted they will not be changed to avoid conflicts.

We hope that you all had a Merry Christmas and enjoy a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Enjoy your hunting season,
Frank O'Leary
