I had asked John to put L.J. in the derby at the Great Falls trial if the entry permitted and he thought L.J. was ready. I thought it would be good experience for the young dog.
Got a text from John on the weekend. L. J. placed second in the All-Age Derby event with a nice run. So his qualification is now in hand and we can move forward with his training.
