Had a chance to watch Steve run Pete this afternoon in Derby. Pete front footed both of the marks. Looked to be a winning run (although I wasn't able to watch many other dogs).

Nice work Steve, Bob and most importantly, Pete.

Pete and Steve make it a minor double header weekend, winning both the Q and Derby! I got to watch Pete from the field while throwing, nice looking pup!! I believe his littermate got a greenie!

Pete had a HUGE hunt on the last bird of the trial ( about 3 feet) other than that he literially stepped on every bird awesome, awesome marking dog, very fun to watch even when you are running against him.

Congrats Bob.
