Is it true that the judges informed the handlers in the Q that should they handle in the first series, they would automatically be dropped?
Florence did not hear the judges say that.
No dogs with handles were invited to run the land blind, though. It was a double, so the judges probably decided only marking the go bird was not enough.

what about the open??
02-02-2008, 09:01 PM
That is Casey (Emberain Semper Case of Red***). He is still playing in the first Open for the year (at least on the West Coast)!
Good Luck, Lee...and "Casey"! ......and #'s 43 and 54 ! :)

Anything on Derby? Good Luck! #1 "Casey" pup..Semper Stephen's Mo2Go Lucy
Golden Retrievers galore... #'s 2, 5, 7 , too
#1 in season.
#7 not there, home training instead.
For anyone interested in other breeds ;-), #22 stayed home to train as well.
If Patopeas didn't run as Russ said, that makes 6 Derby scratches (at least).
Great to see so many young pups in the Derby..Why's that? And yes, this is a trick question (sorta)...

Yes, we all had to scratch this week and next due to unforseen difficulties. We should all be up and running by Willamete FT.

Good Morning Everyone! I'm so sorry I forgot the computer this week-end. I guess getting back into the swing of things is more complicated than I remembered!!!
Anyway, Thanks to Russ & Florence for the updates and here's what I have so far. Hi Lee :D
The Open is going to the 4th series with 15 dogs this morning. The weather is very cold and wet and I couldn't find anyone with the call backs. But there were 34 dogs called back to run the water blind and here's those numbers: 1,3,9,10,11,12,13,15,19,21,23,24,26,27,29,30,31,33 ,40,45,49,50,52,53,54,58,60,61,62,63,67,69,77, & 79. So 15 of these dogs will be running the 4th. Hope that helps a little!
18 dogs to the 4th 1,2,4,7,8,9,14,17,18,20,26,32,35,37,41,42,47, & 49.
Derby started and ran the 1st series yesterday. I heard they only lost 2 dogs but that's all I know.

Glenda, you got a second? Congratulations!
02-03-2008, 06:16 PM
WOOHOO!!! Meg and Lulu--Way to go! And congrats to Bob James & his AFTCH Ram River Spring Fever!!
02-03-2008, 06:43 PM
Thanks, Chuck. Only down part was that as Twist was running down the hill to the flyer, he did an absolute flip landing completely on his back---then ran hard and picked up the next three birds. But---when airing before heading home, he was on three legs so will see what happens!!! There are lots of squirrel holes so probably had his foot or leg go down in one.
It was fun after the lack of training available at home---although we are the kings of running on soccer fields!---that had two finish the Open and one finish the Amat.
02-03-2008, 08:57 PM
Oh, No! I hope he's okay. Those sorts of things - he will be stiff and sore tomorrow. I hope no more than that. Sounds like you had a pretty darn good weekend. I guess those soccer fields work!
02-03-2008, 10:46 PM
Congratulations John and Glenda! You both had a great weekend!
02-03-2008, 11:01 PM
Hey Glenda -- Keep us posted about TWIST. I hope he's going to be alright and it is just being sore. A fall end over end onto a back is so scary. I've seen 2 of my dogs do it, one for sure I thought broke his neck.
02-04-2008, 05:40 AM
Congratulations Glenda!! I'll add to concern over Twist. I've seen it happen too and your heart is in your throat. Hope he's ok.
02-04-2008, 06:56 AM
Congratulations Glenda and Twist on your Open second. I'm hoping that Twist's injury is not serious.
Also, congratulations, Meg and Lulu on your Amateur second!
