Another Dallesasse bloodbath. Ebner is trying to hold him back, but to no avail. Contestants are sick.... Actually, Dick wanted me to write this. Blind through lillypads. Very natural environment.

Open has a double waterblind.

I wanna see these dogs. Heard alot about them, was hoping to see them in CO. Sucks that you couldn't get off work, Chris. Why don't you come east and run/kick our butts some,:) so we can see them?

I think I can say that Anne and I had a great time judging the derby. It was a great group of contestants!

We had 13 starters, and 7 finishers. It just happened that 2 of the 4 placements were fluffies! :D as well as one of the jams! Great water entries on those swamp collies! :D:D (And, it was a cold day.... I had my scarf and gloves out in the morning!) I looked around and saw no big towels or bandanas!

We had a new handler/competitor in the group, who had only run one other derby, (won the Golden specialty derby) who did a Great job! Welcome to the sport! I think that one win hooked him, and his second derby was a VERY nice finish!

Thanks for a great day!:D

Thank you Susan Bledsoe for a very nice Sunday. The Derby was about marking. NO TRICKS! We talked very little about the placements. We (judges) had the same placements. It is so nice to judge with someone you can agree with! Thanks again Susan.
