Coldstream Trial - Pro Novice

After a long cold winter, Western Canadians wake up from their hibernation to see what their dogs are doing at the Coldstream trial at Lee Lumb's beautiful farm in BC.  It's warm and green and we run on farm flock, hair sheep on a flat field.  The left hand outrun has a draw for the sheep near the top, which caused a few dogs to pull up short, and the right hand outrun has alot of water - ALOT of water that several geese were bathing in and it slogged the dogs down on their path. Today's judging was done by Chris Hanson, and assuming her flight finally gets in tonight (it was canceled at first), tomorrow's runs of Open and Nursery, will be Vicki Kidd.
Because of the large entry (a good problem to have in Western Canada where we rarely fill trials) you could run Pro Novice or Nursery but not both.  Today's Pro Novice had 34 dogs. The sheep were hard to settle at the top so there were alot of free bees on the lifts but after that, the sheep were great. Both of Bliss' runs were nice and Scott was happy with her and she placed 5th in her first run and 7th in her second run.

The first round was won by Bliss' littermate, Penny Ohanjanian's Druid, a son of Scott's Don and George Stambulic's Kate (a daughter of Scott's Pleat).
