FTCH Runnin's Lady Known As Lou (February 14, 2007 - May 21, 2020)

An amazing dog and a incredible journey through life. Lou had a stacked pedigree and did her best to live up to it. (2X NAFC FC 2X NAFTCH FTCH Ebonstar Lean Mac X FC AFC NAFTCH FTCH Runnin's Molly B). From Open WIN #1 all the way through Open WIN #19 it was quite a ride! She finished her career with 125 Open Points.

Lou was an amazingly talented dog and a thrill to watch. She started off her training and FT career with Breeder Mickey Rawlins. In 2010 Judy Wilson and Mark Anderson purchased Lou and Colin McNicol of Windy River Retrievers took on all of her training and handling. Together Colin and Lou, along with support, input and help from Carey Petersen, accomplished all of those Open Points, were Finalists in the 2015 CDN National Open, became the CDN High Point Open & Combined AA Dog in 2015, became the CDN High Point Open Female in 2013, 2014, 2015, & 2016, and in 2013 won an Open Double Header each of which had 50 dogs and then the very next weekend she won again! At the end of 2017 Lou ran her last FT and went to live with Judy and Mark on their horse barn property in Manitoba. Lou enjoyed helping Mark with the chores and exploring the grounds where she could take a swim in the pond whenever she wanted.

WRR will always miss Lou's joy and zest for the FT Game and her being a part of the WRR Team. We know that Judy and Mark had the privilege of having not only a gifted FT dog but a very special companion in life.
