The Springer field trial community lost a great competitor this morning. Slip placed second in the 2006 and 2009 National Open, and won the 2008 Canadian National along with a myriad of other placements and accomplishments. Slip died from complications associated with grass awn infection.
It is a true tragedy for the Springer field trial sport to lose such a talented dog much too soon.
Our sincerest sympathies to Slip’s family and friends. She will be missed.
