Miikka's kid Gordy made the US Derby List! If you remember he's the pup I kept from the Arson x Miikka litter and his "official" name is Elmingos Controlled Power Play.
I raised Gordy up until about 5 months old and then he went to his forever home. He was a delight to raise and continues to be a delight to be around. Such personality!!! He's a spitting image of his dad and his Dad was an awesome specimen.
Gordy has a very bright future ahead of him. I think he's on 9 Derby finishes in a row and has one left before he ages out. He's a very bright and consistent young dog that doesn't make many mistakes.
Miss Libby and I made it to the last series of the Open this past week-end at a trial in Montana. She had run a great trial up until then. She was the only 3 year old in the last series and it certainly was not a 3 year old test. I needed to get Momma Darbi off the truck to pull that test off....years of experience and wisdom.
Trust me when I say Momma D would have been very happy if that was the case. She's been driving me a little bonkers lately with her...ahhh...exuberance.
Libby tried her little heart out, but she got confused. Very happy with her effort.
