Thanks everyone. I haven't had that much fun at a trial in a LONG time...nothing like the young dogs to get a person amped up about the future. As most know Tango is David's dog (he truly is a Daddy's boy), however David agreed to let me run a Q with him and to choose a trial during the 2nd half of our circuit, I randomly chose this one. I know it's not very common for couples to share their dogs, but David and I are a little unique, not to mention all the dogs are MY BOYS! ;)
This weekend is also Bullet's "swan song", we didn't fair too well in the Open and I'm gonna let David have a shot with him in the Am...David mentioned it in jest last night while we were celebrating Mr. T's new QAA...I can't think of a better way to have Bullet enter retirement! David supported us for many, many years throwing birds, driving us all over the country, so why shouldn't he have an opportunity to run Butthead one last time...it's gonna be nerve wracking to watch, but it's going to be awesome at the same time!
Congrats on the Q 2nd Lainee, but try not to let Ted beat you next time. :D

AM callbacks to the 2nd
if any mistakes or forgot any, sorry.
We did have to stop after 5 or so ran the land blind due to severe thunderstorms, hail and tornado warning. Went back to Swift Ponds, all good after long time of heavy rain and had a great time at the BBQ. Thank you Kevin L and John G for expert chefs, good food and adult beverages.

I just wanted to give a big shout out to my peeps in the Fort Collins Retriever Club. We had some adverse conditions and yet everyone managed to get through it all. The judges and workers had to bust butt on Sunday because we had to stop early on saturday so we started the BBQ early. Congrats to all who placed and finished.
Thank you Judges:
Open: Dave Seivert & Robby Bickley
Am: Charles Bearden & Larry Howell
Q & Derby: Dr Wayne Jensen and John Hoggatt.
Everyone made Lemonade from lemons. The workers and our judges rocked.
