Am/Can OTCh Brush Run's Have Mercy On Me, UDX4, JH, WC,
Mercy is my second Golden, and my second Obedience Trial
Champion. She is by the same father as Ollie. The
breeder called me and told me of this litter and insisted
I come to "see the puppies". Well I came home
with a little ball of 7 week old fur. At that time I had 4
other dogs, and I felt 5 was going to be too much. I asked
the Lord to "have mercy on me" for getting this
puppy, and low and behold she had a name. Brush Run's Have
Mercy On Me.
Well the lord certainly did. I feel blessed
everyday because of this dog. Mercy is the most
"honest" working dog I have ever come across.
She will work her heart out for me, and keep giving. She
is always happy and eager. In fact I wish I found
everything as wonderful as Mercy does. She has never met a
stranger, and has a fan following at the shows.
Mercy finished her Obedience Trial
Championship in grand style. It was at Louisville Dog
Training Club, spring of 1998, under Judge Karen Hertzog.
Mercy received 1st place with a 198 from Open B with 47
competitors. Mercy had a wonderful year in 1998 as she
received 10 High In Trials and 9 High Combines.
Along with the Obedience Championship in 1998,
Mercy obtained many of her other titles that year-- Junior
Hunter Title, ASCA-Utility Degree, and her Working
Certificate. She is a once in a lifetime dog. I am
very lucky to have the "lightning strike twice"
Mercy has competed in the Cycle Championships, and in
the World Series Tournaments. She has multiple placements
in both. Mercy also has received the "Jack Godsil
Award", for earning a "perfect score" at
the Cycle Regional in 1996 from the Open Class.
Mercy is also a Narcotics Detector dog for Northern Ky
Drug Dog Coalition. She is the only Golden Retriever to
have made the team.
She was owner/handler trained and worked. I have to
admit-Mercy makes me look good. She has the speed,
willingness and accuracy, all in one package. I am proud
to say I am still showing Mercy and will bring her out on
a regular basis in the fall. I have to say showing Mercy
is like being on an Amusement Park Ride, I just hang on
and enjoy the excitement. If I had my way "this ride
would NEVER stop".
