Scott's fourth nursery dog is Cy Peterson's Erin.
Cy Peterson's Erin
Erin is a bitch that Scott started and ran a little bit last year.  He got a leg on her in nursery at the Bluegrass trial and she ran a 89 out of 90 in the pro-novice.  During the Summer, Erin went home for Cy to work and was sent back this year for some polishing and to introduce her to turn backs and shedding.
Erin was bred by Cy and is out of her Emma.  Cy runs Emma in open and last year, at their first National Finals, they were in the top 50. She goes back to Debbie Bailey's Jose and Bill Berhow's  ABCA Hall Of Fame dogs, Nick and Jen.

  Erin's father is Matt Cook's Gunner, out of Jennifer Ewers' Sweep and Jesse.  Sweep and his line are the dogs I saw when I was first introduced to trialing in California.  His steady parents, Wilda Bahr's Val and Mirk are who I studied on the trial field as I was learning.  Mirk was a son of Terry Parrish's Rhys and Val was a daughter of Tommy Wilson's Roy.  Jesse was a granddaughter of Ken Willard's Imp Ben (Alasdair MacRae's USBCHA National Champion).

Erin is both biddable and independent at the same time.  She understands her job and we are hoping she and Cy will make a perfect team when she goes home this Summer.
