An update on Trailing Friday/Barrett Weims. And, sincerest GRATITUDE to all the owners, handlers, trainers, babysitters, dog walkers, emotional supporters, and the community who support us. And them. Cheers to more greatness in 2017!!! ❤️
Dogs we’re on the hook for (10).
BRITTA (2009 Undocumented x Unverified). Seven years old. Queen of the house. Lives to boss around the others. She’ll always be the #1 bitch of this house.
FRIDAY (2008 Axel x Veba). Turning nine this year. (OMG!) Retired from everything but the sofa. Weasels her way onto my pillow every night. Doesn’t care for her grandkids.
BOULDER (2013 Max x Friday). Lives in Las Cruces, New Mexico with his BFF Terry. Having the time of his life. Postcards say “love you mom, but ain’t coming home.”
LUNA (2015 Bo x Mika). Currently with Uncle Warren getting ready for the Mesquite trial next weekend. Running in Derby. Also preparing for Field Futurity(ies) this year.
TENNESSEE (2016 Logan x Story – import from WA). Still hanging out with Garret and Blue in Laguna Beach. Can’t return until the head count at Barrett HQ comes down a bit. Or until we all move to Boulder, Utah, together. Whichever comes first.
SHILOH (2016 Rossi x Mika). Currently in Las Cruces, NM with Pappa Terry and litter-mate sister Sookie. Learning how to be a field dog.
PEBBLES (2016 Boulder x Seren). Spunky monkey. Has decided she doesn’t need us anymore. Currently interviewing for new mommies and daddies. Will be packing her bags and leaving us in a couple of weeks.
MACY/RORY/THEORY (2016 Boulder x Seren). Also known as Pebbles’ pretty sister. Quiet and demure. Can’t tell if she’s “a good one” or if the devil is still hiding. Ages into the shows next month. Need to take her to handling class.
PASCAL and STEVEN (2016 Imports). We’re still figuring out who these little boys are, what they’re about, and where they’ll end up. More about them, in the weeks and months to come.

Other kiddos who have “moved on” this past year: Seren, Mika, Cali, and Hammer. The girls have retired from their professional careers and Hammer is livin’ it up in style on acreage as a hunting buddy.
For those of you who are wondering about 2017 breeding plans… The official answer is “sometime in future” with Bug and/or Gracie. Timing unknown. Until then, we have our hands FULL growin’ out the young ones and letting the kiddos just… Be kiddos. 😊
Finally, here’s a snapshot of what our sofa typically looks like at night. With love, from our house to yours. – Kim and the gang
