2004 Deep South Brittany Amateur Champion
By Kent D. Patterson
Cooper's Ozark Traveler
Four year old male, Cooper's Ozark Traveler owned by James and Betty Doherty of Mobile, Alabama was named champion of this event with The Prodigy, seven year old male owned by Kent Patterson of Franklin, Tennessee being named runner-up champion. The performances of these two dogs are described below in the order in which they were run.
Cooper's Ozark Traveler (Cooper)-Doherty
Keystone's White Label (Hank)-Cherry.
Breaking away into a very chilly Alabama morning both dogs handled the muddy running in the first two fields well. Cooper was right in a cast through a forward woodlot and Hank accepted the invitation of the large open field to the left and was not brought forward for some minutes. Cooper ran the inside tree line to the right of the burned field showing to the front precisely where he was supposed to be just short of the new lake site. Hank was returned at this time and both dogs continued forward across Safford road onto Dr. Kenny Bramlett's property. Cooper's handler loses sight of him along the Sedgefield's Plantation fence and as he's looking for him point is called from the front. Cooper is sighted by the lead judge to the left of the Bramlett property gate on point with perfect style. A large covey is produced with Cooper spinning to mark flight. Sent on Cooper moves up with Hank who is running the edges with casual ease well to the front. Hank makes a wide swing down into the second Sedgefield's fence corner then across the next hill to finish going away. Cooper was returned from the front after a large swing to the right shortly after time was called.
