Fun Coursing in the Sunshine State!!!

A huge thank you to Robin Barry and SSRRC for a wonderful sunny weekend!!!

So, we finally decided to embark on a long awaited and planned trip to Florida.  We desperately wanted to get down to the Ocala area so that Robin Barry, co-breeder of our Spirit/Raleigh litter, could finally meet some of the puppies.
We decided to head down this past weekend, for the SSRRC AKC trial in Lady Lake, FL.

This was a 3 day trial at a new field.   We only went for the weekend, but were very impressed with the field and faculities.  

Saturday was the warmer of the 2 days, but very enjoyable!  
Moon was 2nd in a field of 11 open whippets to earn her first 2 AKC pts.
Half-sister Elsa was BOB from the Specials stake.  So exciting after the long trip!!!

Sunday was equally exciting, while Elsa was pulled due to a small pad injury, Moon went on to go 1st in the open stake of 13 open whippets for her first Major win and 4 pts!!!!
I was sooooo happy that Robin Barry was able to see this promising young girl in the beginning of her career and we can't wait to see what she has planned for us in the future!!!

Moon is not yet a SC but she has 6pts and a major towards her FC!!!!!

Mike took some great coursing shots, can't wait to see what we got!!!
