Cody won the Western Open Derby Classic yesterday morning with a nice, rangy forward race and a good handle. He was handled by Sheldon Twer, who has been training and handling him since mid January. Last month Cody won the derby stake at the Oregon Open Shooting Dog Championship.
I am very pleased. Thanks to the Bay Area BDC and to everyone who has helped get Cody this far - breeder Jerry Lewis, Terry Erickson, Paul Garrett, Tom Griffin, and, of course, Sheldon Twer.
