A Rat-tling Good Weekend
Calder had a good ending to 2018 by chasing down a few rat tubes at the Happy Ratters of Harrisonburg barn hunt trial. On Saturday he earned his RATN title with a 4th place and came back on Sunday to pick up an Open leg. Most of all, he had a great time! Calder is Quillquest Yin Yang and Darkwater RN JH CGC DJ *RATN*
