AKC National Lure Coursing Championship

Posted by Picasa

We had a wonderful weekend at the 2010 AKC National Lure Coursing Championship in Reidsville, NC. It was cold but oh, so exciting to see so many wonderful runners. Tarifa was Best of Breed on Sunday and was high scoring Dual Champion Saluki for the weekend. Unfortunately, due to an injury incurred on Sunday, she was unable to compete for Best in Event Saluki. Tarifa had taken home the title in 2007, the last time the event was held in our area. We are so proud of her.

Best in Field Number 6

October 30, 2010 - Tarifa pulls another Best In Field at the ASFA trials at Rocky Mount, NC. Wow! Thanks to Jim Anthony, Leigh Littleton and Dean Wright for this win. Congratulations to my darling veteran. Shown here with Leigh Littleton.

Tash (14 months old) was test dog and proves his enthusiasm for the lure and little Lashes, only 7 months old, runs the entire course at practice. We're hoping for two more committed coursers.
