Does anyone have any info? I'm really just wondering if my dogs are OK. My favorite young dog pro, who is now moving down on the list :D, told me gator stories the other evening like you wouldn't believe....

Are you asking is it safe for dogs here in Jacksonville, FL to swim in the water? If so the answer is yes you just need to pick your spots carefully. Especially since their mating season is right around the corner.

Yes..... thanks. I had a feeling he was having great fun at my expense. I got told stories about pulling up to run a derby with two gators sunning on an island, etc....

You never know! I was wading one morning while duck hunting and turned around and their was 2 gators 20 yards behind us. They never bothered us but I sure kept my eyes open after that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Susan,
Just so you know, the Jacksonville Retriever Club trial isn't in Jacksonville. In fact, the club isn't even in Jacksonville! I never could figure that one out.
Anyway, at all of the trial grounds down here, the gators tend to have a short life expectancy for some reason. Either that or they are afraid of the dogs and migrate to other areas. If I get the chance to see Honor and talk to Andy tomorrow, I'll let him know that you are concerned about him feeding your dog to the reptiles.

Thanks Matt...... actually it's Seth running the dogs this weekend, and Honor is one of his favorites - Honor was Seth's first open win and the first dog he titled. So, I'm not as concerned about him. Now Gavel, he's a big guy, and might kick a sleeping gator on the bottom of hte pond and wake him up... and then there's my young and tender derby dog... :D


Wonder why such a short life expectancy regards :D-

Susan,

You are hilarious. I actually feel like a bad owner/pup mom. All I've worried about today is if my pups are still hanging in there. I didn't realize that I should be worrying if they have all of their limbs attached. Great. One more thing for me to stress over with these dogs :).

Don't worry about Ruckus, he's too focused on being a rock star this weekend now that he's on the derby list. He doesn't have time for those mean ole gators, he has a ribbon to bring home to mama.

best,
J

Susan,

He doesn't have time for those mean ole gators

Ruckus = derby dog = no sense. :D "hey, that gator is trying to get my bird, I can run faster than him..... man, that guy needs some dental work......(Ruckus jumping up & down barking at it) hey, he looks hungry..... mom, Mom, MOM!!!!!! "

Yes, I can find things to worry about Jamie...... I am my father's daughter. Just let me know if you run out... but you didn't hear the stories I heard from that mean ole' trainer. And then Attar's message telling me if I'm worried about gators to call Seth and scratch the dogs..... course you know those guys don't answer their phones. :D

Gators, heck, I heard they are playing in the NIT. Everyone here knows you have to worry more about the water moccasins and rattle snakes than gators. However, a pond can be clear one minute and have a big gator in it the next. That is why the minor stakes are run in the water before the major stakes.

Doesn't look like the Open will finish tonight. Maybe 10 to 15 dogs will be left to run tomorrow morning. Open is a triple with 2 retired. Middle retired mark is about 250 yards, long retired mark about 380 and flyer about 175. Order, long left, middle flyer. The middle mark is real tight to the back side of the flyer. Good set up, however quite a few dogs completing the test.

48 called back to the land blind. Call backs to the water blind -- 9, 21, 25, 27, 29, 34, 35, 38, 41, 49, 51, 53, 57, 61, 63, 66, 72, 82, 89, 90, 92, 95. Started with 49, quit with 29 at 7:00 P.M. I know that 95 and 29 picked up.

Amateur call backs to land blind. 1, 2, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 20, 21, 22, 25, 27, 29, 33, 37, 38, 40, 41, 42, 44, 45, 46, 49, 50, 52, 53, 55, 57, 60, 63. They may have completed the land blind but I did not get the call backs

Qualifying --- ran water marks first series because Amateur needed water where Qual was running. Call backs to the water blind --
1, 2, 7, 9, 11, 13, 14, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 27. Water blind was run but do not have the call backs. Don't know if there any more series were run today.

I hope this will help.

Hey Susan,
Now that it is over,you can ask a golden person that was at the National Speciality a few years ago what happened to the bird that was thrown and disappeared. :cool: It was a small lizard:rolleyes: Brings a whole new meaning to "no bird".

Demi- That's what I was afraid of.... I tried to talk Craig and Seth into taking a box of pork chops and some duct tape.... tape a chop to a big rock. Throw it in. If nothing happens, they can put my dog in the water... :D:D They didn't seem to understand that I was joking!
