    Default Western MT DQ

    Two land series in the Derby resulted in two dogs going back to an old fall. With three scratches, that left 15 dogs going into the third series, a big water double with a long, big swim go bird and a shorter memory bird with three water entries including a shallow cheat in front of the bird thrown on a point. Fourteen dogs were called back to the 4th series:

    The Derby 4th series was a very tight flower pot. The first bird down was a long bird slightly to the right thrown left to right down the left hand shore. The short mark was thrown right to left from a point and splashing into the water. There was a corner of water up front so the dogs had to drop into this water, climb up onto a dike, and reorient as to which bird they were going to either going in front of or behind the short gunner. Most of the dogs cheated on the long mark to varying degrees. Most of those that cheated, ran up onto dry land and backsided the long gunner. A very few cheated but stayed low in the marshy grass taking a straight line to the bird. I saw only two make the big swim to the bird.
