Hi Steve,

Results are on entry express.

Thanks to all the judges, they were great test.

Thanks to all the memebers who helped out, we couldn't have gotten it done without you.

and thanks the all the handlers and dogs, we appreciate your support and hope you had a good weekend.

Tidewater's first O/H Q was a great time. The judges set up some challenging test for the dogs and we had some good dog work getting to the winner. We plan to make an O/H Qualifier an annual part of our spring test so put it on your calendars.

Congrats to all the winners and qualifiers, hope to see you in the fall.

Thanks
Brad

The real questions is we still never had a KILT check lolHow do you know it wasn't done behind closed doors?
And, who's volunteering to; #1 wear the kilt, and #2 do the kilt check, this year? :)

One question though......Was he wearing "the kilt"? :wink:

My understanding is that he only wears the kilt if people show their money first :-)

Jim was almost speechless when he called home to Michelle. Haven't got all the details, but he was real pleased with Trooper's work all weekend.

There's a baby "Troop-let" in Michigan who would like to follow in his dad's pawprints.

It was a great weekend for our dog family with blue ribbons in field, obedience and agility ... but touched by a sad counterpoint ... Rosie ended her journey on Saturday as Trooper began the new chapter in his life.

Hey, Bait ... since Jim says he's probably not going to Colorado this year for the NS, will you wear the kilt?

Hey, Bait ... since Jim says he's probably not going to Colorado this year for the NS, will you wear the kilt?Show me the money! :)
And ask Jim about the Larry the Cable Guy boxer shorts, in MO. And, something about some money on that trip too. ($5 bills, I think. ;) )
It's all for a good cause though.

Now Hold on thar Babba-Loiu!

I just may be in Colorado this year (I would call it a probable). However, I challenge John Baitinger to wear the Kilt. He is after all much more Scotch-Irish looking then I am!

As to the Larry the Cable Guy Boxers, I just hope that those pics do not show up. It would keep us both out of politics!

Jim

Ps..thank you to all for the congrats! They are truly appreciated.
Ps 2. Thank you to Linda, Jim and all at Tidewater for an absolutely delightful, well run, well staffed Q/HT. One of the best events I have seen in a long time! I was glad to be there and meet some new friends. The judges for the Q and MH set up challenging, yet doable and fun tests, which were judged sensibly. Nice to run something and there is no controversy, just enjoyable set ups. Poopy Butt sure liked'm!

Jim,
Way to go Man! that dog of yours is a special boy. He has always been one of my favorite dogs to be around mostly because it usually meant we were together. I miss you and give trooper a pat on the head and tell him I am proud of him. Montana is better then being a Proffessional Dog Trainer........by alot! when will you come to see me?

As for the kilt-looks like it's time to order another one so you and Bait can wear matching attire. I'd go to Colorado to be in the gallery for that one! ;-)

JimI can honestly say I haven't got an ounce of Scottish blood. I'm about as German/American as you can get. But, I will be happy to wear the kilt, (or the Cable Guy boxers) (again) for the same reason as you did in Conn. Donations to the Zeke fund. Just bring the tequila, and your fellow instigators, Sammie and Dennis, along w/checkbooks, to the "unofficial handlers meeting"and we'll git-er-dun! ;) (OK Goldngirl, ya happy now? It's ON!) :)
Oh, and Dennis, I must've missed the shower story. Fill me in dude!

If I was to tell the story, the reliving of it might get my Scottish blood boiling and require action that Jim would not find pleasant. I'll say no more.

Scott...I sure had a good time meeting you. You are a good sport! Now you know what I mean by when I say that I may have been one of the few Non lab folks there, but you were still out numbered!

Hope to see you soon. Again, it was a pleasure to meet you.

Katy, I meant what I said, and regardless of having a successful trial, You and your co judge did a great job...nice tests, well judged, sensible call backs, good demeanor. Your dad would be proud of the job you did.

Hi Jim and Katy,

As much as it hurts to say, Trooper did WIN it, when we were shooting the flyer in the last series, after the last dog, we were talking about who won, and I said I thought the swamp collie had won it (yes, it hurt to say). Then when the numbers came out, sure enough he was at the top. He was fun to watch in both the master and the Q and ran great all weekend. Congratulations, I know that was a big step up for the both of you and couldn't be happier that it happened at TRC's first O/H Q. This was a test run for the Q to see how it would go, now we plan to make it an annual event with the spring test. It was a pleasure meeting you and hope to see you again.

Katy, Jim is right, the judging was great, well thought out test, generous call backs to let the dogs play and the best dogs were left standing. Thanks again for coming down and judging, I hope you'll do it again in the future.

Congrats to all the placements and qualifiers in the test, we appreciate your support.

See ya in the fall. Double Master, Junior and Senior - October 1st 2nd and 3rd in Emporia.

Jim,

You golden people sure do stick together like super glue. Remember I own a gloden as well, she just won't swim.

I do hope to see you again soon at a trial or h/t. For some reason I like all the harassment that you dished out. It was a fun weekend for sure.

[QUOTE=Dukdawg;606291]Hi Jim and Katy,

I thought the swamp collie had won it (yes, it hurt to say).

I would prefer the term "Throw Rug" as in when you have a good one they sure can throw it down!

Congratulations, I know that was a big step up for the both of you and couldn't be happier that it happened at TRC's first O/H Q.

Actually, Trooper has finished 2 other Q's with back to back 4th places, and also made it through 3 series of the Open at the GRCA Specialty back in 08. So, he's had some success before a few times.

He was hurt (Groin tear) for most of the summer/fall trial season last year, and was out of training and running till very late in fall. Being on a limited training schedule, it took me this long to get him back. So I wanted to use the Q/MH to get the line time with him after being laid off for nearly a year.

However, getting a win is never expected and never taken for granted. I sure appreciate the awesome 3 day event that TRC put on!! Have not had so much fun since Bait Bibs were created!

Yeah man, nothing like coming back strong after a big injury layoff. I was wondering how Trooper would be after that. Looks like OK, huh?
Gotta say, we went down and ran at Tidewater last year and also found it to be a well run trial. Even tried to help out, but no one needed any help, they had it covered. My dog didn't even do so well, but had a great time. Good people down there.
