More Lure Chasing

This past weekend we drove to Calgary so that Brodie could chase some more plastic bags at the Foothills Gazehound Club’s trial.  He did 3 Chase Ability runs and qualified in all of them.  We get so many comments from the sighthound owners about how unusual he is for a Golden…..they think his running style is closer to a greyhound.  Maybe that explains why he is so fast.  In 2018 he was the 3rd fastest Golden (fastest male), with a speed of 40 km/hr.  At his first Sprinter run this year his speed was 42.11, moving him very close to the fastest Golden in Canada, a female who ran 42.41.  Thank you to Mike Johnson for these amazing pictures.

On Friday and Sunday we participated in Alberta Lure Coursing Association’s Sprinters and Chase Ability Program races. Brodie ran two CAP and 2 Sprinter events and qualified in all 4. With his CAP Q on Friday he earned his Chase Ability (CA) title.

Big thank you to ALCA for putting on a wonderful weekend despite all the weather challenges.
