Sue Westlake, Madison, GA (Field Trial - Derby)
Since 1977 when I joined the Maine Retriever Trial Club, I've known what a thrill it is to stand beside a talented dog. Over the years I've done some breeding and a lot of training and learned something new with each dog I've owned.
I have been a field trial judge since the 1980s and continue to compete regularly. I'm very pleased to have two young dogs now who are showing a lot of promise: Hacker and Finder. After we retired, my husband and I moved to Georgia to get away from the Maine winters. Now I can indulge my obsession all year long.
