    Default First Derby WHAT A RUSH!

    Well, this weekend I had the chance to run my pup(Delilah) in her first derby.

    I had a GREAT time, the San Diego team really put on a great trial, I had the good fortune of running with a small field for my first trial which took some of the pressure off. My training partners came down to support me and keep my nerves at bay(good luck)!

    The judges were great,the marshal was outstanding, I really appreciated the understanding the showed to a complete newbie. The tests were very good, they put enough into each test to separate the dogs but they were not overwhelming.

    At the end of the day my little girl was awarded a jam, I was very, very happy with the whole experience. Even the gallery and the other contestants were top notch, I have never recieved so many offers of congratulations and hand shakes in my entire time of runnig dogs, even the gentleman that took home the blue came over and offered his congratulations.

    I'm hooked!

    That is a huge accomplishment, I have seen quit a few people run their dogs in derbies and never get a jam. If you run any derbies in the northern CA. this next spring I'm sure I will see you there. Congratulation on a job well done.
