A daughter of Darbi's from her first litter WON the Open in Washington this week-end!!
Her name is Elmingo's Chasing A Whim (Adey) and is from the Tiger x Darbi litter.
VERY FUN and CONGRATS to Adey and her owners and trainer!!
I ran my girls this week-end at the Metro trial in North Texas.
Darbi pinned the first two birds of the triple and then was only 10 yards upwind of the difficult long retired bird and she kept punching. It was heartbreaking to watch as lots of dogs never made it all the way out there to begin with, but I was so pleased with her effort. She never recovered after running way deep and I asked the judges to have the gun help her as the mark was WAY out there and I didn't think I could get a handle on her back to the bird. She got a pat and a "good work Momma" on the way back to the truck. She really showed her warrior heart.
Darbi's son Turq (Prime x Darbi) ran a great trial competing against his mom and then handled on a very difficult quad in the last series of the Open. And his sister Meg was dropped after the water blind. Pretty good showing for those two young "kids".
Littermates Zink and Libby (Shaq x Miikka) both JAM'd the Qualifying at this trial. They had great work going into the 4th series and both went a little bonkers on a tight test. An "up the shore mark" messed with their heads a little bit and it was all over. They're both very exciting young dogs and have bright futures in front of them.
I'm a pretty proud breeder this week-end. I'm so happy to see the kids do well.
