February 2010 - IWAGS TOP DOGS 2009



DC Carrickaneena Ardri MC

The Boy in the picture got his Master Courser Title for AKC Lure Coursing on Saturday October 10th of this year at the IWAGS Lure Coursing Trial. Over the last 5 years, every run he successfully completed (with A LOT OF DRIVE AND STRENGTH as some of you witnessed personally) was done at North Branch Park at the IWAGS events in New Jersey; under the careful guidance, help and watch of the Flanagans at Carrickaneena.

Thank you ever so much Mrs. and Og for all you’ve done for our McGuire, for the IWs and the club.

McGuire continues to be a true blessing in my life, my first IW, a Dual Champion. I am so thankful for having him and I am proud of his accomplishments. Thank you all for your continued love and support.

                                          A Tribute to Jonathan Jordan

It is with great sadness that I tell you Jonathan Jordan passed away last week after a long illness.  We have lost a great judge, a dedicated animal lover and a dear friend.  Jonathan was a kind and gentle man – always willing to help or explain anything to a newcomer or to the rest of us who have been around forever.  I learned a lot from Jonathan and I appreciated the time he spent to teach us.  He was patient, deliberate and totally honest in his quest to find the winner when he was judging.   He loved lure coursing and the dogs.  Jonathan always did his best when he was judging and I only hope that we will see more judges who will emulate his love and dedication to this wonderful sport.  I for one will miss him greatly as I know so many of you will.  So Jonathan “Tally Ho”.
