Description

They say you can learn a lot about a dog by looking closley at the given name on their pedigree. However; I disagree with that statement because I don’t feel my name describes me well at all. For some reason, I'm named “Armsrtong's Rough-N-Rowdy” or just Rowdy for short. I'm not sure here my name derived from but I know that I’m not at all rowdy, nor am I a rough houser! I'm told I earned the name because I was a very active playful puppy. Regardless of the reason, if you want a dog with all the tools then I'm the dog for the job.
What tool in my arsanol is my strongest? I think everyone would agree that my natural retreiving ability is far and away my strongest asset. Over the years I have learned that a wounded bird can fly a great distance before it finally expires. Most dogs will give up only after a short distance but if my handler will allow me the time and the room, more times than not I will return with the downed bird!
I’m not sure my great retreiving skills are only a product of natural ability. As a matter of fact, I feel I retreave so well because Kenny once was a very poor shot. His shooting has vastly improved over the years but those early days are what really prepared me. It was very common for me to make at least one long retreave every trial we attended. Since those early days, his shooting has now improved to the point that I rarely get the chance to showcase how well I retreave.
This past season at the 2009 UFTA Nationals I competed with my father “Cox’s Major” for the National Doubles Divison Championship. In this event two men and two dogs have 20 minutes to find and harvest 6 birds as quick as possible. The team with the fastest time and fewest amount of deductions, wins! This year the field consisted of 40 plus doubles teams from all over the USA and Canada. After a good semi qualifing run I felt our chances were pretty good to at least take home a trophy. I never in a million years dreamed I would share a National Champions stage with my very own father. That was a very special day, one I will never forget!!
