Proof made the derby list!!!!

I just can't believe it!!! He got another second today. He was so amazing. He ran a great trial. Second and third series were unbelievable. Claps from the gallery. Last bird in the whole trial he backsided and hunted a bit. I was bummed after such an amazing trial figured we'd get reserve jam. I was dumbfounded when they kept passing him I thought he didn't even get a JAM and then they said second and I freaked out ha ha. Almost started crying ha ha. Wow proof you are incredible and thank you George for breeding proof and placing him with me.

AWESOME!

Just 16 months old and on the Derby List ... a tremendous accomplishment.
What a great team they make!
Hard work, smart work ... it is NOT easy to train and maintain at such a high level.

"Keep on keepin' on" you two!

thanks everyone. I just want people to know that goldens can be good at this and beat labs! Proof is Proof of that at least for 11 points of his life, ha ha!

We put in a ton of hard work with this but honestly I couldn't have done it without my trainer, Jason Baker, training me day in and day out. He's really a good teacher of people which, so far for me has been a unique trait among the pros I have previously trained around. I know there were days he wanted to just take over but he always stood there patiently explaining on the spot what to do. I'm very lucky to live so close to him!
Also, Hugh Arthur, who kind of kicked my butt into really understanding the complexity that this field stuff is going to take and encouraging me endlessly to keep pushing Proof.
Thanks Ben for always helping me and dealing with my meltdowns when I'm so drained and on the verge of quitting!! And man you are the best partner a friend could ask for!

Its just cool, I'm super excited. I know it might mean diddly to most but to me, this really is fun and neat and a great learning opportunity. Proof has already opened so many doors for me. I'm training with some of the best in the business. I've gotten to travel and train with new friends at their homes. The best times of my adult life outside of the normal things with family. And the bottom line is this so much work. I mean, my whole family has changed dynamics now since I'm training so much. They are all supportive but its a tough balancing act. it would be really hard if they were any younger. Oh well, I'm just glad that my goals and dreams are starting to come together

Jason is one of the nation's top trainers of derby-aged dogs. He trained and ran what is currently the high point derby dog, Flex. (I'm not displeased to say that Flex has now aged out of derby, having turned two a week or two ago. )

I'm amazed by Shelby and Proof!

I couldn't wait for Flex to age out of derby.
