  1. While I am very sorry for your loss, I am so grateful that she landed in a good place with you and you shared many happy years together.
  2. The website is up and the page to sponsor handler/dog teams in both Open and Nursery classes is active. Shortly, the list of entries will be available to choose handler/dog teams to sponsor. Sponsoring a team costs $100 and is a major support for the Finals. Individuals, companies, or groups can sponsor teams. For your $100, in addition to the satisfaction of knowing you are contributing to the National showcase for the working Border Collie and helping to promote the use of these brilliant working dogs, you also will get a sponsor hat and two passes for the entire Finals. Your name will be announced when your team goes to the post and will be listed in the program (as long as you sponsor by September 6th), as well as be listed on the website and announced on the 2021 National Sheepdog Finals Facebook page. If you can't or don't wish to sponsor a team by yourself, get a group together! Four people, each chipping in $25, can sponsor a team. Five people, each giving $20, can sponsor a team. I'd be happy to coordinate this for individuals that contact me as I have done multiple times in the past. If you do a group sponsorship, you just need to note on the form who is to be shipped the hat and the tickets. Sponsoring a team is a great way to recognize a mentor, an admired handler, or a dog that is special to you. Instead of, or in addition to your name, you can make your sponsorship "In Memory of" a favorite dog or handler. Contact Deb Mickey at DogSponsors@yahoo.com if you have any questions.

  4. The wait is over! Well, it was over a few days ago but I am also running behind! The 60th Bluegrass Classic SDT logo wear is now listed on the website for order but the order window is short. Due to the uncertainties posed by the pandemic, the logo wear ordering was delayed, and our apologies for that. You can see the short and long sleeved tees, hoodie, and caps available at http://www.bluegrassclassicsdt.org/logo-wear/ that feature the well-known Bluegrass SDT logo, customized for the 60th running of this wonderful trial. Your form can be emailed or sent with your check but please submit your order by Friday, April 30th, and mail your check no later than Monday, May 3rd. Again, our apologies for the short notice but it's rather a miracle that the trial is able to be held in spite of the uncertainties posed by the pandemic. Please help support the Bluegrass Classic SDT with your order of our quality logo wear!

  6. The Bluegrass website (www.bluegrassclassicsdt.org) website is up and current. As always, it takes a rather large village to put on a world-class trial and we still have room for just about anyone who would like to volunteer to help out. You don't need experience to volunteer, just a willingness to help out, follow directions, and learn about sheepdogs and trials at one of the world's premiere sheepdog events. And, on top of it all, it's a great way to make connections with handlers in the sheepdog world! You may meet handlers from all levels from Novice to World Trial. There is a wide range of jobs but virtually all of them give you a great vantage point to watch the action on the field, whether it's the Open field or the Nursery field. Masterson Station Park in Lexington KY is a gorgeous venue. The trial runs from Wednesday, May 12th, through Sunday, May 16th. There is plenty of parking space. I can't guarantee the availability of vendors this year but usually we have some really nice shopping opportunities and a good food vendor. And, if you love horses, there is a ton to do in the Lexington area, from farm tours to the famed Kentucky Horse Park. Please go to the website and volunteer today! PS - And it's not too late to place an ad in our program for your merchandise or services, recognize a mentor, memorialize a friend or a dog, or just to support the trial. Class sponsorships and ribbon and trophy sponsorships are still also available. The deadline for program inclusion is April 23rd.

  8. I'm bumping this up as the Bluegrass Classic SDT was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic. We are very optimistic about getting permission to hold this venerable and prestigious trial this year at beautiful Masterson Station Park. Our thanks to those who contributed last year with the knowledge that their support for a memorial class in Kristi's name would be used for that purpose this year instead. All paws, toes, etc., crossed in hopes that the 2021 Bluegrass Classic SDT will be a go for May 12-16 and, as always, we need a lot of support to put on this world-class trial. The website is up and current with all the information needed to volunteer, support the trial by sponsoring a class or purchasing an ad in our program, or be a vendor. Please consider sponsoring a class or placing an ad in our program, to spotlight or memorialize a mentor, friend, or dog. Several individuals have already committed to a memorial for Kristi Oikawa, a Bluegrass competitor and volunteer (and frequent contributor as Airbear to these boards) whose sparkle is keenly missed. In addition, our community has lost Maureen Scott Robinson and Dave Fetterman over the last two years. Anyone who would like to be a part of memorials in any of their names can contact me. A trial of this magnitude takes more than a village, and we appreciate the support we've received from the greater sheepdog community for so many years! We hope that we can count on your support for this year's 60th running of the Bluegrass Classic SDT, and want you to know how much we have appreciated your support in the past. Please use the forms available at the website (www.bluegrassclassicsdt.org) to volunteer, sponsor a class, or place an ad. Thanks for your support!

  10. I haven't been here in months but it is very good to see that Cressa has been doing so well at her age and with her kidney problems. A happy belated birthday to the good old girl!
  11. My boy started grizzling on his face when he was two years old and our girl never grayed at all. It's in the genetics.
  12. Bad breath was one of the symptoms we noticed in Megan. As a marker, too, I didn't notice any increase in urination. And she lost some weight without a decline in appetite or increase in activity. Best wishes for you both - as long as she is happy and you can manage her, it sounds like you will have some sweet times together.

  14. Sorry to hear about Kip and very grateful to hear about Walt!
