– was born in Sweden on 9. november 2018. 8 lovely puppies (5 black and 3 brown) – 6 bitches and 2 brown males. Moa, who has one previous litter with Memphis from last year, once again did a good job. All puppies had birthweight between 400 g and 500 g – except for one little girl, she weighed only 280 g. But she was very stubborn and strong – and has already catched up with her siblings.

Hipstatus A and elboestatus 0 on son of Memphis

You got me Hooked of Storm's Legacy, Aiden, who lives in Holland at kennel of Storm's Legacy, has been x-rayed with the best of results you can wish for. Aiden, who just became one year, has also passed the eyeexamination with no remarks. It is so wonderful when the health status is exellent on the offspring of your studdog. 
In Denmark Memphis' daughter, Drumbeat Dignity, also has status A and 0 on hips and elboes, and I can only be happy that the puppy bitch from Memphis' first litter, who was selected to become a blind guiding dog, also has passed the 'needles eye' regarding temperement, skills and health and is now a functioning guiding dog.

New Swedish Bloodtracking Champion – three 1. prizes in a row!
Going to Sweden for our holiday, I had planned to go on two bloodtracking trials to see if we could gain the first of three 1. prizes to make Memphis a Swedish Bloodtracking Champion.
The swedish trials are 600-700 meters long and the track is made app. 20 hours before the actual trial. 
On 19. July we went on our first trial. It was very hot and the terrain was a bit rough. Halfway a buck jumped up not far from us, Memphis saw it and barked a couple of times – excited to see it. It was of course an interuption but Memphis was so cool that he took up the trail again with no doubt. This gave him an extra Prize of Honour (HP) along with our first 1. prize. It was a really good start. 
Five days later we went on our second trial. Thsi time the hoof was from roe dear. Memphis pickud up the trail immediately and almost pulled me through the forrest. After app. 9 minutes the judge stopped us. I though that maybe we had gone in a wrong direction – but we were at the point where the judge makes a shot to see if the dog okay with shooting. This is always 50-100 meters before the end of the trail, so I knew that we were close. Of course Memphis found the hoof – and our second 1. prize was acheived after only 11 minutes. Now that we had two of the three 1. prizes I was eager to see if we could arrange for the thrid trial. This was organized and on 27. July we went on our third official trial in Sweden. We had a perfect start, Memphis as always very focused. There had been boar in the area recently so that made a lot of distractions for him – but he is so clever with his nose – and after 22 minutes he found the fallow dear hoof. And our final 1. prize was gained! So now he can put a new title to his name, SEVCH, Swedish Bloodtracking Champion. We just have to wait for the official registration. 
We look foreward to our next challenge: the 1000 m tracks in Denmark.

Saturday 27. maj 2017 at the Swedish Spaniel and Retriever Club's  national dogshow in Hasslarp Drumbeat It's Now or Never aka Memphis entered the champion class judged by Laurent Pichard from Schweizerland.

The judge really liked Memphis, so he also became Best of Breed –  of 62 labradors. In Best in Show finals he became 4. winner of 13 different breeds – judged by Barbara Müller (CH).
A very nice and special day for us!

Sunday April 2 Memphis and I had our debut on DRK Midtsealands blood tracking test in the Bidstrup forrest. Memphis was very confident and steady in following the track – and after 8 minuttes he found 'Bambi'. We got a horn salute and as tradition bids two sprigs from a tree. Judge Lars Svendsen gave us two large sprigs from beech as we did the job very well. He was very impressed with us – Memphis gained 24 out of 25 possible points. It was a fantastic way to start our tracking-career!

14 days later she participated in ring training for the very first time. It was natural for her to stand square on all four feet... she just needed to learn to stand still! I think she did a very good job. I look foreward to see her in the ring this spring.

Memphis is now German Champion (VDH)!

In Kassel, Germany, 10.-11. December Drumbeat It's Now or Never won the final challenge certificate to become German Champion. The judge was Bjarne Sørensen (N), who also gave Memphis the reserve club certificate. Memphis had his 6 first challenge certificates in less than a year, so to become officially champion he had to gain the seventh. Sunday he also won his class by judge Christiane Lohmann and gained the eighth... 
The road to become champion in Germany has given some wonderful experiences. Memphis has gained 6 club certificates in all, he became best male twice and won a CACIB, he became VDH Frühjahrsieger 2016, he became BOB and furthermore he was placed as number 3 in group 8 in Bremen. That was really exciting! Well done by Memphis who turnes 3 in January next year.

DKK International 2-day Dogshow in Herning 5-6 November

Drumbeat It's Now or Never participated in Dansk Kennel Klubs international show in Herning 5-6 november. Dan Ericsson (S) was judge saturday – we became 4. winner. Sunday was a better day for us – Memphis was placed as 2. winner by the scotish judge Frank H. Whyte: "Good scull, stop and muzzle, like his expression and over all size and breed type, good depth ample width, well angled rear, holds a balanced outline going round, prefer a little more width in rear action, need more finish to complete his picture.” 
Well, the latter will come with time ... :)

VDH-FRÜHJAHRSSIEGER 2016 and BOS, Dortmund

In the weekend 7-8 May we took the trip to Dortmund to participate in one of the major dogshows in Europe. One of the days the certifcates are dubbled up, and there is given a title for the best dog and the best bitch every day. So the show attracts a lot of the finest dogs in Europe.
Saturday Drumbeat It's Now or Never, Memphis, became 2. winner in the workingdog class. This gave us the reserve-certificate, but as it was dubbled on the day, it actually was the forth out of five certificate, tham Memphis needs to become  German VDH Champion. So this was a very good day! 
The day after Rinie Leenen-Compen from Holland was judge. She really liked Memphis, so he won his class – and gained his fifth certificate! This would normally make him german champion, but unfortunately there must be at least one year and one day between the first and the fifth certifikcate – and we had only 10 months! So we still need one... By winning our class we qualified to compete for the CACIB, the club certificate and the title VDH FRÜHJAHRSSIGER 2016... AND WON!!!! WOW!!!! Becoming the BEST MALE is until now our very best achievement! Against the best bitch we became BOS. But what a day! I am so proud of my dog, 2 years and 4 months old, second best labrador out of 60 labs, many of them multi-champions...
I am so proud of my black boy!

For the first time on an official Working Test

17 April we participated on an official WT on the beautiful Bregenved Estate. A wonderful but very windy day. Unfortunately we got 0 points on the second post we attended – a post with a little 'drive' and where the dummy landed in vegetation smelling like spring onions! A lot of dogs failed this particular post as they could not find the dummy. But Memphis made the most beautiful marking on this post so all the spectators at a distance though he made maximum points. But Memphis was so eager, so he just couldn't wait for the order. And with two shots on the post it was just one to many. I am not experienced enough to just say 'stay' an extra time, so this cost us the 'passed test'. The rest of the day he just did splendid work, so we just have to try again!

Thanks for photo and a really nice day to Ulla & Kim.

14 April Drumbeat It's Now or Never became a father to his first litter with the nice brown bitch Freja (sire Chablais Overseas Treasure). Freja is out of classic labrador lines and a superb hunting dog, owned by Katrine Nygård. So the puppies can only turn out to be wonderful, easy to work with dogs with two such parents, that are so nice to work with. Equally brown and black puppies – 5 bitches and a brown boy (two boys did'nt make it through birth). One of the girls are going to become a 'seeing'-dog for a blind person if all goes well.

Saturday on 13. februar at DRKs national dogshow in Taulov Memphis became 2. winner with CCQ in the working dog class – judge was Christina Daniels from Sweden.
The day after at DKKs International dogshow in Fredericia we did even better – Memphis won his class with CCQ as the only dog with 'excellent' in the class. After that he became third best male with RES.CAC – beaten by two fine champions. Hans van den Berg from Holland was judging sunday – a very harsh judge using the full scale... Actually only 6 male dogs in all got Excellent og only 5 of them got CCQ. Memphis did a really good job that day!

16. Januar 2016 we got up very early and drove to Jutland. We entered before the lituanian breeder and judge, Reda Bubuliene from Kennel Okeanas. Memphis got a super judgement, but was beaten by a little older dog. So he became 2. winner in the working dog class and the dogshows 5. best dog among the labradors.
Besides the good judgement report, I was chosen as the best handler among the labrador male dogs, so we were to participate in the competition to become the shows best handler. This went totally wrong, as Memphis was placed 50 cm behind a golden retriever bitch in maximum heat... I had no contact to Memphis – I think he is beginning to understand what bitches can be used for...

Da vi mødte et par spøgelser ... 

Søndag den 27.09.2015 gennemførte Memphis DKKs mentalbeskrivelse. Den klarede han rigtig fint, da han på alle de vigtigste parametre ligger fuldstændig på labrador-racens ønskeprofil. 

Det ene sted, hvor Memphis 'faldt helt ved siden af' var på 'jagten', hvor det var meningen han skulle jagte en hvid 'kanin' (læs klud), der blev trukket hen over jorden. Her sad han bare pænt og ventede til jeg gav ordre, hvilket jeg ikke måtte. Han har lært ikke at jage selv – og det er i mine øjne mere ønskeprofil end at han selv sætter efter 'vildt'. Velopdragen hund. :)
Det var dog var en stor mundfuld at møde to spøgelser på en gang! Han faldt dog hurtigt ned igen og fik hilst på de venlige spøgelser ...

Det var en rigtig sjov og lærerig dag – noget jeg kan anbefale alle!

Memphis på Bornholm

Ved DKKs internationale dobbeltudstilling på Bornholm den 15. og 16. august lykkedes det Drumbeat It's Now or Never at blive 2. bedste han om lørdagen hos dommer Eivind Miærum fra Norge. Desværre manglede vinderen stadig et certifikat, så Memphis fik reserve CERT og reserve CACIB, som er det internationale certifikat. Men det må siges at være ret godt gået, da vi slog en svensk/norsk champion hund på dagen!

Dagen efter var vi knap så heldige – vi vandt dog mellemklassen men uden CK – og var dermed ikke med i kampen om certifikaterne. 

Eivind Miærum skrev bl.a. om Memphis:
Flot velbygget han, velformet hoved, maskulin, god krop og benstammer, stærk overlinje, bra vinkler, skulle gerne have mere drive i sine bevægelser, men har harmoniske skridt, bra pels... 
(det skal lige siges at det var meget varmt og lummert den dag, som endte i regn og torden).

Memphis til Unghundemesterskab (UHM) 09.08.2015

DRK Østjylland afholdt igen i år UHM for retrievere under 2 år – i Bjerregrav Mose ved Randers. I år var der lavet en ny prøveform, som gjorde at lidt flere kunne deltage, og hvis man bestod de fire første poster, så fik man en 1. præmie (B-prøve, begynderklasse).

Memphis på 19 mdr. og jeg har trænet gennem flere måneder, så det var en dag, vi har set frem til med en vis spænding. Trods høj sol og meget varme, var Memphis bare 'på', så de tre første poster gik strygende med henholdsvis 17, 13 og 20 point (20 p er max). Vi måtte derfor gerne fortsætte til post fire, som var et ganske almindeligt frit søg. Her lå der desværre en fasan, som Memphis bare ikke havde lyst til at samle op – og det kostede os alle 20 point på den post. Og vi fik dermed ingen præmiering. Alligevel var det en super fin dag, Memphis er en skøn hund at arbejde med – og jeg er rigtig stolt af det samarbejde, vi har. Vi har trods alt ikke så meget markprøve erfaring... Til højre ses Memphis umiddelbart efter prøven og en velfortjent badetur.

På billedet er det Bedste Junior, Lab Lodur's Let's Show, Memphis – og den bedste tæve, der konkurrerer om at blive Bedst i Racen (BIR/BOB). Det blev den smukke blondine, der både er svensk og dansk champion, der løb med sejren. Men vi var i fint selskab - og man må sige at Memphis har haft en super god debut! Vi har fået mod på flere ture til Tyskland :)

Hallands Kennelklubb – Internationell och Nationell Utställning

Så har vi igen været i Sverige... Fredag den 10. juli fik Memphis sit allerførste Reserve Certifikat! Han stillede for den østriske dommer Sigrid Jarmer og vandt mellemklassen med CK. I konkurrencen om at blive bedste han, blev han placeret som 4. bedste han – og fik reserve cert'et. 

Om lørdagen til den nationale udstilling, var det den svenske dommer Börje Johansson, der dømte klassen – her blev det til en 3. vinder. 
Man må sige at vi er kommet godt i gang i mellemklassen!

Tak til Kirsten og Susanne for foto.

Lørdag den 4. juli – Grøn Working Test

På en meget varm dag deltog vi i DRK-Nordsjællands super arrangement, Grøn Working Test, som er en uofficiel prøveform med forskellige poster, hvor man som uerfaren hund eller fører kan få en masse gode tips og råd til, hvordan man går på markprøver og officelle WT's, og hvad man skal arbejde videre med. Memphis klarede dagen i meget fin stil uden fejl! Og føreren fik nogle gode fif... ;)

Søndag den 28. juni 2015, Södra Älvsborgs Nationelle Hundutställning ved Borås, Sverige

For aller sidste gang var Drumbeat It's Now or Never med i juniorklassen blandt 10 fine svenske hanhunde. 

Det blev til en 3. vinder med CK hos dommer Natasa Davidicov fra Serbien.
1. og 2. vinder i klassen blev henholdsvis bedste han 1 og 4, så det var nogle rigtig fine hunde, vi var oppe imod. De er oven i købet halvbrødre til Memphis! 
Vi fik en super bedømmelse – så det må siges at være en ok måde at afslutte juniorklassen på.

20-21. juni 2015, DKK International Udstilling, Vejen

Memphis lavede et flot 'hattrick' om lørdagen ved for tredje gang i træk at blive 1. vinder med CK i mellemklassen. Feltet var meget stærkt, da flere af hundene allerede var præmieret med flere certifikater! Dommer var Lene Johansen. Det var en stor dag!

Søndag stillede vi for dommer Inga Bonnez for sidste gang i juniorklassen i Danmark. Her blev vi 4. vinder ud af 10 fine juniorhunde.

Så endnu en fin weekend med gode resultater – han gør det sgu meget godt ham Memphis! 

Tak til Tine Norup for det fine billede.

29. maj 2015 – træningsdag med Keith Mathews – The Dog Guru!

Skøn dag med den irske træner Keith Mathews. Omkring 16 hunde og lige så mange deltagere uden hund. Vi trænede vandmarkeringer og især linjer og dirigering. 

Her er hundene sat af på en lang række – og de skulle så blive der i mindst 10 minutter uden af flytte sig. Ikke alle kunne så længe! Alligevel må det siges at det gik godt... 
Memphis er den sorte hund længst til højre i billedet – han klarede det rigtig flot og længe – helt afslappet selv om hundene på begge sider af ham rejste sig flere gange. Meeen til sidst var det altså svært at blive på sin plads uden at være tæt på sin 'moar'... :)
Det ser sgu da fedt ud med sådan en lang række hunde!
