Anybody know what's happening at Central MN trial? I haven't heard from my pro, so that means that both my girls crashed and burned in the Qual. Shoot, we don't ever have 70 dog entries in anything but the O and A in California--where'd all those Q dogs come from anyway?

That's exactly what I was thinking. Turns out my little girl was 1 bird away from a placement but got the jam. Not complaining though if she keeps finishing the numbers will eventually add up.

WHOOPEE!! Finally heard from my pro--he was stuck in the Open--my little golden girl, Emberain Amiable Ultimatum got 3rd. Last week she botched the land blind--this week 3 whistled it and one whistled the water blind and did the water marks beautifully!! Course the one that finished last week, went out in the first series--isn't that just like a dog? I'm a happy camper. Heard the first series of the Open was a bear and more dogs are handling than not--maybe it got better as it went on??

Congratulations on that JAM! Just to finish a Qual that size is an accomplishment--consistency is the name of the game. "See" you next week at Minot?

"See" you next week at Minot?
Minot will be the first trial of our Fall schedule. My dog, Booty Raider, will be running his second Open as a 2.8 year old. He usually can do the blinds and depending on the marks, possibly those too. Anyone know how many Open dogs in Minot?

Which dog did Mark take a fourth with? Quick or Diesel?
If Mark ran the Open, then Lee Jolly has to be running the Amateur. Anyword on that stake yet? Just a couple of south Loosiana boys.

Oh, NOOOO! Found out that I spoke to soon. Or, well I was told to soon. Turns out my girl did'nt get a jam. She picked up all the birds with a handle in the last series of 14 dogs. Pro was told he lost control as she hunted behind a hill briefly before he handled. Sorry for the misinfo! :oops: I can tell you that want happen again. Pro thought she was good at least for the jam. Judge did'nt see it that way. Still happy to finish a 70 some dog Q!!

Could be wrong, here's what I heard:
Qual: 1st and 2nd Yozamp, not sure which dogs.
Derby: 1st Jayne Halvorson, her first time running a dog!
2nd Susan Ritch (spelling?)
Open: "Mac" with Dewey, owned by Mike Clemens, was the 2nd place dog.
Am: Land blinds (double blind with a poison bird mark) finished about 12:30 on Sunday, I was dropped after this but it was my first ever Am so I was happy. Started with 71, 32 to the land blinds, 16 to the water blind.
