ha ha ha, it is so funny about Flex. What is really cool about these derbies is it like horse racing. You start to know the dogs and get into checking the statistics. I was really happy he aged out but I am also happy about a few other dogs aging out I am happy Mark Menzies dog ages out in a few weeks..ha ha. I'm also happy that Chase Haws dog, Gus ages out this summer too. But I will always have a big load of hard dogs to compete against down here. Jason Baker, Marc Patton, Brad Arrington, the Arthurs, ect. Some good trainers and dogs! But I'm seeing the same names on the board and now I can put the dog with the name. Makes the game way more exciting!!

That he is an I'm lucky to have my pup with him till sept/oct. and he also has some experience training and running all age dogs so he is training these dogs to be ready to run all age tests not long after they age out.

yeah he worked for Al for 8 years I think running open dogs. I would say he has a "bit" of experience with all age dogs. ha ha! He has really helped ease me into the next level. There is just so much to learn and so many nuances to pick up at the line. Move your knee just one tad too much and your dog will swing too far and miss his mark! Show your dog the flyer station and you are doomed to have to pull him off of it and get him to focus on the long bird. Run your dog on the left side to hide that short gun in the water but run the risk of the dog cheating too much water on the short go bird. I could go on and on and I'm grateful that I'm with all sorts of great people weekly that I can learn from and observe from. Proof has so much to learn and and get better at, I'm glad I have people around me that can guide me through it.

And now Proof is that dog! He's the one now that they talk about and say, "I can't wait see him age out of derbies so I don't have to compete against him!"


(FYI Dogs can't compete in derbies beyond the age of 2 years. Once they are 2, their derby careers are over.)

He's back at it!

Congratulations to "Proof" and MOP for Proof's third place in a field of twenty-two dogs! I looked at the dogs entered in that derby and it was a talented collection of canines!

WAY TO GO!

Thanks!! He is up to 14 points now. I'm so proud of him and so excited to see goldens out there whipping some bootay! I was very happy to have my friend that judged him on the WCX when he was ten months old marshal this derby and see how much he's grown up. It was crazy getting updates. i was a nervous wreck!
