On April 28, 2012, a nice sunny spring day in Northrup, Texas Ricky receives his first AKC Master Pass at Tejas HRC. The first series was nothing to sneeze at, but the Second Series was a really ball buster. The average time per dog to run the series was 22 minutes. The Test consisted of three marks and an invite to run the blind. Ricky hammered this test and was probably the best dog to run the test. The key to the test was the right hand mark which was in the water, out of the water, back in the water, up the channel, out of the water to to the mark (mark was approximately 150 to 170 yards. Ricky was perfect.
