Here's the link for the running order. I thought I'd put it up today to see if it works.


03-21-2007, 10:33 PM
Yes Tammy it works.

03-21-2007, 11:35 PM
Dam I wish I could go watch this. I have to work all weekend though. The Casino I work for is opening their hotel next week and I do all the phone and computer crap.

Dam, this sucks!!!!

I wish I could go, too! Unfortunately I got a little too much wind & pollen at last week's trial and am now stuck at home trying to overcome an asthma attack. :cry: The dogs get to go, though. My training buddy took them to the pro for me.
Good luck everyone--but especially to Tammy's cute Miss Star! :D

Best of luck to everyone this weekend. We are on the road to the grand state of Texas (it's a longgggg drive).

Suzanne, we are so relieved that you made it home OK, we were quite worried. Hope you feel better soon.

Tammy, we will be anxiously awaiting your reports.

Good luck to all.

I'm glad the link works. My fingers are not very good at typing out the names long hand. Now just the number's :D

"Nana" - We hope you feel better and we'll miss you this week-end, but we'll keep an eye on Amy & George.

As always, fingers, toes, legs, arms and anything else we can cross for "Miss Star" helps me get through the day!! :lol:

Hey Derby! I'm a big casino fan. I try and have dinner at one on the way to a trial and on the way home from a trial. It helps me relax!!

Nancy & Judy- Stay cool!!! and be careful on those roads. Be sure the rocking chair is strapped down!! :D

Now, everyone get a good day of training in, a nice dinner, and a good nights sleep. I hope my laptop works good at the refuge if not my reports will be in the evening.

Hi Russ & Florence - I've got your number just in case I don't get a good connection.

Good Morning All!

The amateur has a triple, retired gun to the right thrown right to left (retired) about 200, yards, middle bird shorter than first bird thrown right to left on the side of a mound (retired), about 150 yards, long flyer thrown right to left, in pretty consistent cover not quite 300 yards. (Distances are my estimate, if they are off substantially, I'll let yiou know.

Dogs are running off hay bales.

I've been told the open and the derby are under way. I'll go over there later to see what's happening!!


03-23-2007, 12:33 PM
Tammy thanks for keeping us posted. Whats the weather like?

03-23-2007, 12:47 PM
Weather is beautiful. I'm out before I even got to start...had to come home with a dog with a foot that looks like a balloon :cry: :cry: :cry:
Managed to get an appointment with my vet for 12:30 (fingers crossed)

03-23-2007, 01:14 PM
I'm so sorry your dog is hurt, glad you could get into the vet it doesn't sound good. Please let us kow what the vet has to say. I'm glad the weather is nice, its finally raining here today.

Tammy Z
03-23-2007, 03:46 PM
Open is a quad -

Two retired guns on each side of the flyer. Right retired is thrown first. Second retired is thrown 2nd. Flyer is thrown 3rd. Short gun between left hand bird and flyer is the last bird down. Pretty tight setup. What little dog work I watched seemed to be going pretty good!! The gallery is far away from the line so the work is hard to tell. I think they'll get done with it today.

Janet- I hope your dog is OK. Keep us informed.


03-23-2007, 04:58 PM
Back from the vet and still don't know much. :roll: He has a temp and the foot is very swollen. There is a red bump on the top of the foot that looks like something might want to break through but we could find no entry point on the botton or side. He spent the night licking at it so it is quite red. X-rays showed nothing. So for the moment he is on Clavamox and Temaril-P and getting cold soaks. So for now it is watch and wait. Thanks for your concern.

I'm still looking forward to hearing how the trial goes.

03-23-2007, 07:01 PM
Thanks Nancy & Judy--I'm behaving myself :cry: and staying in the house, taking my meds and hopefully the wind will die down in the next couple of days and I can poke my nose out the door. Drive carefully!!

Janet, sure hope your boy's paw is going to be okay.

Go Tammy!!!

Janet- I hope Gyro gets to feeling better. We did miss you today!

Suzanne - I hope you are feeling better too!

The weather was really warm today. About 78 degrees for a high. Wind was light this morning coming from the southwest then turned around to northwest and got a little breezy this afternoon. It is perfect right now. A little cooler and a light breeze to keep the heat down. I'm sitting in the parking lot waiting for the open call backs visiting a few folks.

I didn't get to see any of the derby set ups except the last series which I saw from a distance on the road. It looked like a water double, pretty long on the long gun.


03-23-2007, 07:32 PM
Tammy who are the Judges?

03-23-2007, 09:04 PM
Thanks Tammy, we miss you all too. Texas is a very, very long drive. But we made it tonight. It feels kind of weird to read about all the folks and dogs that we have been running with for the past month or so. A big congrats to everyone.

However we are especially thrilled with the performance of the youngest dog in the Knollwood Ladies Training Group. Sounds like Banner held he banner up high and blue. We are so happy for Alice and Banner. She is living up to her name. Half way to the Derby List already. Way to go.

Best of luck to all at the PRTA Trial, see you at Sierra Nevada.

Open blind- double blind with a poison bird in a differtn field than were they ran the marks.

Amateur blind-single blind over a bush, along the road between both retired guns from the marks. Very easy for your dog to go out of sight and either end up on the old gun stations, at the bird or past the bird. Work has not been all that pretty.

More later . . .

Amateur Call Backs to the 3rd

18 dogs


It's getting really warm here. Light breeze (maybe a wind instead of a breeze) out of the Northwest.

Open blind was still running.

Qual set up-
Triple with short center bird and long flyer. No retired guns. Short bird and flyer are converging. Tough test. Dogs are having some trouble.


03-24-2007, 03:51 PM
Dam I wish I could go watch this. I have to work all weekend though. The Casino I work for is opening their hotel next week and I do all the phone and computer crap.

Dam, this sucks!!!!


No worries, Anderson, which is a lot closer to you, is next weekend.

03-24-2007, 05:48 PM
Sorry, I don't have any results but wanted to update on my dog's foot. After accidentally squeezing some puss out of it last night while looking at it I went back to the vet this am. She cut it open on the top and said that tons of funny looking cheesy puss came out. They flushed it out and want to keep the thing open and draining. Contents sent to lab for analysis to be sure we have the right antibiotic. Wierd????????

Suzanne Burr
03-24-2007, 08:52 PM

The wind has really picked up this afternoon. It looks like the fog is pushing in from the coast and a little front is moving in. We might have SouthWest winds tomorrow! Even though he temperature is in the high 60's (around 7:30pm) it feels pretty chilly outside.

Good Luck to everyone tomorrow!!


03-24-2007, 10:13 PM
Janet thanks for the update on Gyro's foot. Could it be a spider bite or even snake. Should see sings if snake. I am always concerned about foxtails. I hope that improvement is now showing.

03-24-2007, 10:16 PM
Nancy and Judy I glad you got to Texas safely. I hope you weren't anywhere near the Tornados in Texas. Stay safe!

03-25-2007, 07:33 AM
Tornadoes in Texas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, we made it safe and sound. It is overcast and muggy, was 80 yesterday, yikes, it makes even straight hair curl!!!

Best of luck to everyone today.

Suzanne-We left Los Banos at 5:00'ish and the qual was still going. They should be done by now I would think. I haved a couple of people who are suppose to give me a call with the results and I haven't heard a thing.

We just walked in the door at home.

Nice trial and beautiful weather.

Florence- We are home safe and sound!!!!!!! :D

It's a lot of fun posting the information on the trial. I also learned that there are a lot of "lurkers" out there reading what gets posted. If there is ever anything that needs added or corrected, just let me know, either by email, pm, or cell. I'm always happy to report!!!!


03-25-2007, 08:18 PM
