Hey Bait!
Still digging out of the snow? It's actually spring on the west coast! We were in the high 50's low 60's lately in Oregon and not even raining:-) Cooper is trying his luck with out me in California. Hope we can make it to Colorado in the fall...you?

We plan on attending.:) Wether we have any dogs ready to run or not. Doesn't matter, just there to have fun. Then, up to MT. to hunt. You know the game. And, yeah, who would've thought we'd be outdoing you guys in snow this year? Still quite a bit around too. Can't wait till it turns into rain. :( Not gonna be pretty. This active weather pattern we're in is crazy.
Is Cooper running Sagehen?

drdawg
02-20-2010, 01:00 PM
Yes Cooper is only running the Open; watch for #54!
Last week I went down and guess I was a little slow on the water blind at the point of the 250 yard re-entry and just got his toes wet. Too bad since he pinned the marks and lined the blind. From Hero to goat in 30 seconds! :-))

Hey Bait,

I'll be at the specialty as well. Maybe we can hook up for a Montana hunt after that? Gus and Alex are both running Sagehens as well, but it looks like Alex didn't called back after the waterblind. Gus is in the open and no news yet.

Lee good luck to Cooper in the open, I hope he gets second, right behind Gus;). See you at either of the two Connell trials?

Kinda doubting we're going to be at Connell but i am trying to talk Jerry into Spokane.
He tends to go south to Ca for the early Eastern Wa trial dates. I can't really pull Cooper for a trial, especially with me workingin the salt mines all week! ;-)

You still training with Randy? A while back I spoke with a gal in the SE who I think trained withthat group. Sounds like she has a nice bitch! Wish we had a few more good golden females running the trials.. There are a couple out here; any in the east that you get to see?

DianeProlly won't see that happen. Gotta watch my vacation time this year. Gonna be another scant year.
And, you are lucky. We still have a bunch of snow laying around. It's melting now though and making a huge slophole of the area. And, got more rain/snow in the forcast. Can't get into any fields. Too much mud. My road is gonna be mud soon. (and it's paved for the moment)

Yes, Judy, very tough but a good test. All the golden owners are happy with the dogs' performances given the quality of the dogs they are up against. This is a very tough, talented circuit they are running in and these goldens haven't been running Open that long. Rebel is still only 3 yrs old.

Thanks, Bon.

The judges set up four challenging series for 31 starters. 18 dogs were in the last series -- nobody was clean. Some had more squiggles than others. The deciding factor was how they would do on a bird thrown from right to left from the top of a dike to an island. It was a long swim in open water. The two "gunners" remained in sight. (That was one excellent bird thrower they had. Not a bad throw in the bunch and it was a long throw to the island.)

The short bird was thrown from a gunners station on the same dike to the left of the line. The throwers were not far from the mat. The bird was thrown from left to right down the dike into a ditch of water. This very short bird was quite exciting for most of the Derby dogs. There were 2 controlled breaks.

That island bird was the killer. The dogs left the mat, crossed the ditch of water in front of them, drove up to the top of a second dike, then faced a long swim in open water to the island. Dog after dog headed for the island then started fading right. They landed on the dike to the right and proceeded to hunt around the gunners station on top of the dike. Some hunts were longer than others. A few dogs after heading right in the open water saw a channel between the island and the dike where the gunners station was. They channelled past the gunning station, landed farther down on the dike, and put up hunts there before getting back into the water and swimming left over to the island.

One dog was picked up; one dog was handled.

It would take a pin or near pin to win this one. Sally was the 8th dog to run. Her line was straight; she didn't waver. She kept on a bee line in the water to the island and landed within feet of the bird which was inside a bush. There was no hunt. She hopped around the bush and dug it out. Most of the dogs who followed her faded right about mid-way in their long swim, landed early on the dike to the right, and hunted the gunners station.

The Sacramento trial is this coming weekend at Grizzly Island. Many of the same dogs who were in this Derby will be at Grizzly Island. Tough competition. There are really some good Derby dogs running this spring. These Derbies are cliff hangers because you never know what the Derby kids are going to do and you can't tell who will be standing when it is over. This time, it was our Sally.

Congratulations to Sally's sister Moxie who got a 3rd at Yuma last weekend and to her brother Shooter who got an RJ at Yuma. Her brothers Bobby and Boogie got JAMS at Sagehens. There are 6 puppies from our litter running Derbies (Sally, Moxie, Bobby, Boogie, Shooter, and Nitro). One puppy (Chet) is running hunt tests. He has his JH and is now going for his SH.
