Addiction LXXVII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

typically once in ground affect you would kick the rudder to straighten the nose of the aircraft with the runway and dip the wing into the wind. I don’t know what kind of limitation the air bus 380 has when it comes to cross winds.

I know the POV distorts depth perception, but it looks like a Harrier landing.

Puppy Love earned her Hunting Hound title today. 😎

I have been running her in two types of field events.

The first, Dachshund Field Trialing, is a competition of trailing ability. One dog v. another, put on to rabbit scent lines, and then judged on ability to accurately trail that line. That’s the discipline in which she recently earned her Field Championship.

Hunt Performance is a Test of freeform rabbit hunting ability. It’s pass/fail. You can choose to run your dog solo, braced (aka paired) with another dog, or in a pack of 4 dogs. Dogs who pass the test three times in a given format (solo, brace or pack), earn the title Hunting Hound. After that you pick another format and dogs who pass the second format three times earn the title Senior Hunting Hound. If the dog passes three tests in all three formats, the title earned is Master Hunting Hound. This is a test open to Basset Hounds, Dachshunds, PBGVs and a few similar rare breeds.

Puppy Love had the good fortune of slotting into a mini wirehaired dachshund pack of experienced dogs, so she started competing in the pack format which is actually the hardest since all dogs must pass all elements of the test for the pack to get a “pass”. So a dog may have a great run but if one of her packmates doesn’t, she is out of luck that day. Nonetheless I say Puppy Love is fortunate because she learned a lot from these very experienced dogs she has been running with. The dogs are judged on searching ability, determination, adaptability, proper use of voice, and gun shyness, and they have 30 min to earn enough points to pass all elements of the test. The tests are hard to get into, and there’s only 4 total tests per year in SoCal.

Anyway, Puppy Love is so awesome in these tests, she makes everyone smile, including the judges. She is so diligent and thorough, she checks all the likely cover but is really quick moving so its fun to watch instead of being tedious. If the rabbit bolts, she’ll sight chase it. When it gets to cover, she’ll trail it. If it goes to ground, she’ll try to dig it up. She is ON TASK.

The pack tried to no avail to flush a rabbit from a tree trunk, the rabbit was kicking dirt up into the dogs faces. Puppy Love was tearing branches off the tree with her teeth, trying to clear herself a little more digging space. I eventually had to call her out to rotate the other dogs in. Lol she came out of the tree trunk and immediately got on the trail of a mouse 50 feet away.

Anyway, they passed the test and now the pack is no more. All the dogs have passed the pack format 3x, no need to keep running them. In fact, it’s sort of impolite to do so, since the tests are hard to get into. Let some other pack have a chance.

So Bentley is a Master Hunting Hound.
Willow and Char are Senior Hunting Hounds.
And Puppy Love is a Hunting Hound.

They are all field champions.

Tomorrow Puppy Love will try to qualify in a Brace stake. And she was asked to be the 4th dog in a smooth dachshund pack, just to help some of those dogs get a Q aka “pass”.

Run twice? Hell yeah.

PS she won two ribbons, one for the Q and one for the title. But even better, she won a cool squeaky toy. Ragnar the Viking Squirrel. Complete with a squeaker and a crinkly tail.

A fun little Cub trick I would do is on a day with a light, steady crosswind and a grass runway is to do touch and goes with only one wheel.

Demonstrated limits at 35/40 kts for takeoff/landing, respectively. Apparently the airframe can handle more but engine airflow limits it before the airframe aerodynamics do.

Ribbons are all good and fine, but nothing tops a dollie that squeaks. Thumbs up!

Nice.

Here's my ride yesterday. It shows my heart rate was solidly Z3 almost the whole set of intervals, yet power was solidly Z4, with very few excursions. You can see HR rise when I stand, and there was a definite fight going on during the last one.

Sounds predatory.

Also, dogs are weird.
