Open is a triple with 2 retired guns. Thrown long right retired, middle short retired, and live flyer long on the left. There is an irrigation ditch to cross right up front on all three birds. Some dogs are channeling the water to the flyer which takes them way to the left of the flyer. Some are having difficulty with the middle short retired gun, blowing past it and hooking back to the flyer. Some are having trouble with the long right retired mark (300 yards or more) which is a good 150 yards past the row of russian olive trees out into an open field full of hit and miss sage brush. As of 2pm only a handfull of dogs did the test clean, a few handles and many many pickups. The test is taking around 8 min. a dog so it will go very late tonight and most likely will not finish today.

I did not see the Qual test so no news on that stake.

Only 15 out of 70 have done it without a handle......they are all hunting short at the tree line about half way out, I hear it's a fair test, just very tough for all the dogs to punch through as Mike said. None of mine did.

The only thing I heard about the Qual is that a triple and an invitational blind was set up in a sage brush flat. I heard it was very difficult.

5, 18, 20, 25, 26, 39, 40, 49, 53, 62, 66, 67, 68, 74, 96, 98.

There is talk of Open going directly to its water marks Sunday morning, since there were 2 pieces of water in the land blind. Decision not made yet however.

For those who have not heard, Dave Morrison, Open judge, collapsed on the grounds this morning while judging dogs. Heart attack. Dave was lucky to receive very quick CPR by a committee member, and an awesome response by the network of EMT's in the area, before he was transported to the hospital. He is reported to be in stable condition and has had an angioplasty already. Open heart surgery is likely.

Brad Peterson is completing the judging of the Open in Dave's place.

We can all wish Dave a speedy recovery. And a "blue ribbon" to the unidentified committee member who was able to administer CPR. More of us (myself included) should be prepared for such emergencies. Cudos to that individual!

Bravo to the individual who stepped up and performed CPR!

It would have been terrible had there not been someone willing and able.

The committee member was Jared Snarr. I am told that Jared is an anesthesiologist. Jared got there in 3 minutes. Witnesses reported that Jared took one look at Dave and said, "Looks like a heart attack. Looks like he needs CPR." End of dialog. CPR commenced. Witnesses said Jared was completely cool and in command like this is just what we do when someone has a heart attack.

EMT's with paddles arrived a few minutes later and took over.

Sometimes people get lucky. Lucky like the passengers on the flight that landed in the Hudson. They drew exactly the right pilot to Deal With It on that day. Dave drew the right FT Secrretary.

He's fortunate like the passengers who landed safely in the Hudson on the day that their plane's engines filled up with birds.

Dave had surgery today and is reported doing well.

Chuck, Melanie, Bait! Thanks so much. I am really walking on air.

Chuck, how's Sadie doing? Bridger has run a couple of quals lately with no ribbons (yet). He's one pass from MH, too.

Melanie, see you in September (I could right a song).

Bait, I know I'll see you in September. I loaded my tow strap too, so Gassner will just have to sit on the sidelines. Looking forward to seeing all of you again, come to think of it. That was some mud, wasn't it?

Yeah, that Oklahoma red dirt turns into something special when you get it real wet. :)
I see you have a new youngster too.

dr_dog_guy
08-25-2010, 06:28 AM
I do have a new youngster. He is the scourge of the underside of my bedsprings, which is where he thinks he needs to be on his back shredding the cloth when I think it is time for him to visit the crate at bedtime. If he shows as much determination in the field, he will be quite the field dog.

The Oklahoma red mud is really special, isn't it? Both a great glue, and a fine lubricant.

Chuck, Congratulations to you and the owner - I had no idea that was Sadie's pup. That litter turned out, much like you planned, apparently. Way to go! Give her a hug for me.

Miriam, my pilot quit. I'm looking for a new one as I type. Sorry! Will I see you at the National?
