Described by her field trainer as “stellar,” Copper was 1st 
Place in 3 senior stakes and second in the 4th at the Irish Setter
Club of Central California November 2010 field trial, finishing the weekend
and the fall field trial season lacking just one single point to complete
her Field Champion title.  Returning to her field trainer, completely unexpectedly, she bloated in her kennel run one night.  The
trainer found her in extreme distress and rushed her to the vet who took her
into immediate surgery, but was unable to save her. 
All concerned were devastated. 
Copper had also earned 4 conformation points, was a delight to live
with, and sadly had not yet been bred.
