Got a text saying Derby had 8 going into the 4th and Lois had 3 of them. Mimi also had hers still playing. They are all litter mates.

Also heard there was a bank robbery so the Open had some activity in the next field were they were chasing the bad guy. Would love to hear more on that.

Pattie,
Thanks for posting! Do you know if they are running the 4th series of Derby tonight or starting in the morning?
Also would love to hear more on the cops and robbers event if you hear anything:)

Lois also got a 3th place with Smokey and also a JAM (not sure what dog), and Mark Mosher got a 4th. Norm Mac got a RJ, Lisa and Mimi got JAMS. Not sure if there were any others. Heavy rain and thunder storms this morning. hope it ends soon.

There was a bank robbery and the robber ran into the field and hid in bushes. They had to stop the trial for a while. I wasn't at that stake but i heard it was exciting. We also heard that a woman on a bicycle got hit. Very interesting day.

Priscilla, i don't have the open call backs - they are going to the water blind this morning.

Good luck to every one today. Looks like it's going to rain all day. I just checked the hour by hour report.

Tomorrow shows windy and in the 50's. The weather is always crazy this time of year for us. You can have the woodstove on one day and the A/C the next.

The excitement in the fields Friday involved the capture of a bank robber. He was spotted on Rt. 44 and chased into the fields in Middleboro where he fled his car and tried to hide from the police.
http://www.enterprisenews.com/features/x1773729912/Suspected-bank-robber-flees-through-cornfield-plucked-from-trees

Now the rest of the story.

The police stopped at the FT and notified them that they were chasing a robber in the area. Linda was working at the trial (gunning) and knows all the police from work details. One of them left his number with her incase they saw him. Everyone started scanning the area with binoculars. Olin, who was gunning with Linda, spotted a guy trying to hide in a ditch area that the police were just leaving after searching it. Linda called the officer and Olin directed them back to that area where they arrested the suspect.

Don't mess with dog people!!!

No mention in the article of the robber hiding out at the FT and no mention of getting help in the capture from Linda and Olin. Hrrrmmmph! Oh-& for the record-I was not driving the grey Jeep Cherokee get away car! ;-)

Congrats to all the Derby finishers and two thumbs up to Dan & Lois! Way to go!

Any more news on the Q?? I hear the weather was not helping the dogs in the 1st series, but I know they did finish the land blind.

If I remember correctly, 18, or so, dogs were called back to the second series land blind and all but four, including yours, were called back to the third. Nice, challenging stand-out triple in the first series and a long blind with a couple of angled cover changes past the flyer for the second. Finn wouldn't take a cast, but that's no big surprise.

Finn wouldn't take a cast, but that's no big surprise.

Very classy remark. I'm really not sure why you feel the need, but if it makes you feel better-glad to be of help.

**I had already heard he'd gone out, but I posted to see if anyone had info to see how friends may be faring with their dogs.

He's a good dog and don't count him out. He's a very good marker and his blinds will come. I'm sure of it. When they do and he's picking up ribbons-maybe you'll be as observant as you are now and feel just as obligated to be complimentary as you are now to be so disrespectful.

You know that I've told you many, many times that I was hoping for the best for Finn. Just as I, and countless other people, have invested many, many hours in training with you and offering you sound, practical advice. Most of which you have paid lip service to and have discarded. Yet you keep asking, time and time again. Talk about disrespectful.

In keeping with your own professed training practices, I'm sure that Lois will use treats and squeaky toys to help further Finn's blind running skills.

Mark-

I'm done with this-especially on a public forum, but please don't flatter yourself that I've asked you for training advice. That has not been the case. I like training with almost everyone and those that have given me advice in the true spirit of wanting Finn & I to do well-know who they are. They are complimentary when we do well and not derogatory when we have an off day. I think the majority of folks in this sport-thankfully-fall under that umbrella.

Please don't drag Lois into this. She is a gifted trainer and has had Finn less than a week.

Ok-sorry folks-hopefully this thread goes back to being about Colonial so we can Congratulate folks on good dog work!

Charlotte-sent you a PM!!

Advice, the taking it, or lack there of, is not often used on the event page Mark.
Usually it is more like “x, y, z called back to second series.”
Not “nanner nannar bo bo, you don’t train like I do”
But to each there own.
True colors, it’s more than just a Cyndi Lauper song.;-)

Very true...... .

and, they can all goof up once in awhile. Honor takes 2nd at the open at madison, but at the Am, because I didn't let him go get the long bird second, he decided to act like a goof-ball..... flip me the dew-claw, or whatever you want to call it. Shame on me for not believing his intent better...... but, that's just the way it goes.

They are just dogs, after all.... it's all a process.

I left Qual while they were running the water blinds. Very stiff cross wind, challenging blind. Lois is kicking some butt down there with 2 of her dogs, Claudia Norton ran a beautiful blind with Sandy, Mike Berube, too with Gunner. Lisa and Grace are still in and so is Kathy Yates and Carey Philips.

Saw a lot of good work on some very challenging set-ups with some really nasty downpours and breaks for thunderstorms every few dogs.

My Maggie sent her evil twin to the test and we went out in the first series for lack of line manners....her big mistake was to do this while Lois was standing in the holding blind behind her. I'm sure Maggie will live to regret that mistake :)

Saw some great dog work this weekend, despite the weather. that Sandy is a marking machine and his work in the last series brought tears to my eyes.

Diane: I relayed your compliments to Marshall. He and Arline had a great time. It was nice seeing everyone.

BTW, Marshall now knows that i got his truck stuck in the mud. :)

Congratulations to everyone who placed.

MBig congrats to a new QAA Golden! Also to Lois. Seems like she's always there in the end. And to Lisa & Grace on the Jam. No surprise to me that Arline and Marshall ran a first class event. Even though Paula got her hubby's truck stuck. :) Wish we could've been there to break bread with you guys.

Break bread??!? I don't think there's a restaurant out there that could handle you & Marshall under the same roof! I'm guessing that Colonial needs to hold a fundraiser after feeding Marshall all weekend!! ;-)

05-09-2010, 07:26 PM
If y'all remember, We were up there for specialty a couple years ago. Didn't run them out of food. (called ahead to overstock the place) Might've come close to running them out of beer and tequila at the "unofficial handlers meeting" though. Looking forward to doing that in your nieghborhood again too.
But, I'll tell ya, I came close to tears when I figured out we couldn't come up this year and see you guys. Especially, beings the hotel is less than a half hour away from T-Bones Roadhouse in Plymouth Rock! Great Steak, and Ribs, and bar with giant Margarita's. Real party atmosphere too! Which is right up my alley. (in case you didn't know that already ;) )

They were, as usual, so gracious to all competitors..

Golden Retrievers did really fabulous work...great handlers..great support and good wishes from all ...a Pom Poms Away "team effort" :)

Your disrespect and dislike of women is thinly veiled.

It was only a half dozen years ago that "D" got you Lardy tapes. You never had heard of him up to that point.
Seems like you have come a long way pilgram to become the self appointed oracle.
