Is anyone at Big Eddie's trial?

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 cents a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money."

I was hoping for Prime. I have a pup coming out of him and just pulling for him. But it doesn't matter Kenny knows what he is doing from what it seems. Good luck to all!

I do see that Prime's owner has him moving on though. Getting those amateur points hopefully!!

Thanks Chris

You are welcome. I had fun running in this trial.
Kudos to the club officers, committee members, judges, and club members Greg, Bob, Gay (that I saw) working this entire trial. A lot of us jumped in to help where we could, so pat yourself on the back because I don’t know everyone’s names. It was pretty cold wet and windy on Friday, better on Saturday and beautiful today.
It was fun.

Congratulations to Wendall & Kay on the win in the Amateur and a 2nd with Dago in the Open. What a great weekend, for two great people--pretty great dog, too.

results posted on Entry Express

Thanks to the judges, my good friend Jud Little for giving us his ranch for a weekend, and everyone who helped, I even slept until 5:30 this morning.

The fact that I got home before 3 o'clock, everything is put away, cleaned up, and the results posted says a lot about the effort and competence of everyone involved (and I even got a load of laundry done :cool:)

No one has better field trial friends who work in all kinds of weather with no complaints, especially my training group....Doug Grimes, John Haverstock, Joe Piland, Pete Marcellus, Robby Bickley, Greg Bradford, and my great longtime friends Bruce Loeffelholz, Bob Gibson, and the preparer of the best field trial lunches ever Gay Houser (who also does trophies and ribbons for us).

Absent was training partner and buddy Ron Geels who didn't know our date and judged another trial (Shreveport), between the weather there and the digs from his friends I bet he never makes that mistake again.....

And last but not least the BEST BIRDBOY Trey Bickley and the BEST ADULT BIRDBOY Chester Mooring of Vinwood fame....

and Chris S. looks like she might be a keeper

Having judged for you in the past, I can certainly attest to how well-run and organized your trial is! It was one of my best assignments ever!

Congratulations to Wendall and Kay Williams for their fantastic weekend with Dago. I know this qualifies Dago for the National Am. Maybe more? Great weekend for a great dog.

My congratulations also go out to Ed Fullerton and his fine dog, Train, for their third place finish in the Qual. Couldn't have happened to a more deserving team.

And more Kudos for Jerry Wickliffe and his dog Tie. This dog is really piling up the points after recovering from an injury. Great to see.

Thanks, no one has a better group than we do.

Funny thing is that there is but one competitive All-Age dog in the group right now (Robby's Bickley's Skeeter) and he was NUMBER ONE in the Restricted

Thanks, no one has a better group than we do.

The only way to make it better is to figure out a way to not have weather like we did on friday;-)
