Award for best new date on the schedule: Metro....this March date beats the hell out of May.

I left after getting dropped after the 2nd series of the derby, Shayne was a little hungover this a.m. but high functioning nonetheless.

Thanks to Shayne for his work on this trial as well to the Carruths for hosting and doing so much to make this a great event.

For a club with Shayne as a member we are getting suprisingly few results.

Come on EE man, get with the info!

That's an understatement!! The only "result" we have had reported so far is that Shayne was a little hung over on Friday AM. :oops: Certainly something more than that has happened since the trial started!! :wink:

Don't know the other derby placements, but Frank Price won his third in as many weeks with Piper.

23 back to the Am water blind in the morning.

I think 20 are back to the water marks in the Open tomorrow.

Only 13 of 46 back to the water blind after a combined 1st and 2nd series in the Qual.

Beautiful weather and trial grounds and supposed to be more of the same Sunday.

Thanks Tim, but lay off the sauce! I just want to make an AA dog out of her. NutCase probably won’t see a derby during her last 2 months of eligibility (May and June). We will live with what we have at the end of this month.

Congrats Ken……..isn’t Dozer getting close to the AFC?

Shayne Mehringer

Did yall know Frank is bald? Neither did the gallery at the amateur until he took his hat off to handle NutCase on a blind as test dog.

Another Metro trial is in the books. Weather worked out great and the judge's did a helluva job. A lot of compliments from the handlers about all the tests.

We nixed the rita machine for this trial and opted for handmade Patron ritas on the rocks. Mr Sehon was certainly pleased with that. The tailgate party rocked as usual and the firepit was going until about 2am.

The fire building contest was the ultimate measurement of manhood as Aaron Kelly's fan and blow technique was knocked outta the park by Carruth's diesel in a cup technique.

Sunday morning sucked to say the least, but we managed.

Thanks to the greatness of EE Stacey for setting the new standard for marshaling and my other buds that pitched in and helped out. No meltdowns, no drama, lotsa partying, and a few dogs ran as well - THATS Metro Trial!

He is still sucking his thumb because Daisy wouldn't get in the water on the water blind.

If my caculations are right, I think Dozer has 12.5 amatuer points.

At this rate, we will probably have to get 5 more fourths to make it happen. :roll: :lol:

I have to say Metro is a first class operation!!! Shayne talks a good game, I have to admit it he backs it up. :lol: We had all the help we needed. EE Stacey is a great marshall. We never had to wait on a dog all weekend. If you are ever asked to judge for Metro jump at the chance.

Guthrie is not as fat in person, just to let evryone know. And his son is a he man! And he has a nice dog. :lol:

Now about the Patron, what a way to win a judge over :lol: .

Thanks to all that ran under David and I for being so pleasent. What a gift to the judge.

I did know Frank was bald I judged him at the 3DQ. Frank congrats on 3 derby wins in a row.

Hey Mark,

Being bald is a handling ploy. Sun reflects off head into judges eyes. By the time the judge finds the dog, he (dog, not judge) is on the way back with bird. Judge never notices the 8 cast refusals on the scented point.

Didn’t work, did it? Enjoyed running under you and David.

Shayne and company, great trial. Big thanks to Scott and Alice Carruth for the use of their grounds. None better around, folks or grounds.

How ‘bout that small black girl dog? :)

If you could, you would. Remember, what goes around comes around.

I'm not worried about it, besides, I don't need her to start popping all the time. Daisy has placed in more AA stakes than Dozer has finished, or likely gotten out of the first series for that matter. I'll take a jam in the open over a 4th in the am anyday! When you gonna come run with the big boys, big boy?


I still think Pete was only kidding.

I wasn't kidding about the congrats to the trainers, they deserve credit too, as Ken well knows (and has written, by the way). Ken deserves credit too, he hasn't screwed Dozer up since he got him back. Ha Ha Ha.

Looks like I struck a nerve

Interesting observation from the one who for some reason found the need to start throwing jabs on a personal level.


But you better check your facts big boy. Maybe AKC performance might help ya.

Why don't you enlighten me?



Jam in the open over a 4th in the am? Wow, I want some of that stuff your smoking

That stuff I'm smoking is called common sense, you ought to try it sometime. When you have 1 dog and competing against multiple pro's running 10-20 dogs each, an open jam is much harder to come by than an amateur 4th where you're competing mostly against owners who only stand next to their dog on Saturday and Sunday. Besides, I'm not chasing a title so I can quit the game like you are, so I don't need the points. Furthermore, amateur placements haven't been as hard to come by for me as they have been for you, so I understand your inability to process the thought.


Either way...don't worry too much about these dogs................

Cause if you do, you will start walking too when someone says "Back

Performance doesn't lie.




Never seen a pop at a trial regards

Speaking of lying, you are way too young for your memory to be that bad. I was there Ken, you can't hide it, or is it something you were smoking?


Oh, and one more thing.....saw this today and it reminded me off Daisy last weekend. Just click and enjoy Daisy on a water blind


That is hilarious! It does indeed remind me of Daisy as well. Pretty smart dog!

Lastly, I don't know why you take congratulating Dozer's trainers this so personally Ken. Did something strike a nerve? It is as though you think I had some malicious intent in congratulating Dozer's trainers. Did you have malicious intent when you made the statement below? If so, I get it, if not, I'm puzzled.

Fortunately for you, I don't let the success of my dog determine my paths in life. I have set goals all my life and getting a title on the dog I own is a goal for me. Allowing him to get it is the goal I have for him.

Quitting after it's accomplished is only to get away from the clowns like you.
