Does any one have any early reports?

All I know is that the Qual completed the first series and then went into a double blind. Have not heard any more other than my dog didn't make it.

Oh, and they did get another set of judges for the minor stakes but my contact didn't know who they were.

Congratulations to Nancy White and "Connie" for a jam in the AM. Unfortunately no other news. Apparently the weather was horrible...thunder, lightning and hail.

Considering that our temps were over 100 when I went to the mountains, I thought it was refreshing to wear a coat! A thunder storm usually blows through every day there. keeps the dust down. The dogs and I are both miserable today with temps in the high 90's. I wish I was back in the cool cool mountains. Congrats to Patsy! I knew Zena did well in the 1st. Very tough test.

Thanks for the kind words on Connie. This was our second Am and we were thrilled to complete it. Getting through that first series was something else. At one point the marshall reported that 34 dogs had run and 21 had picked up.

This makes Connie QAA as well. We can thank team Gunzer --Connie and I have been with them for five weeks. In that time, we have a Qual thrid, a Qual Jam and now that Am Jam. Thanks so much to Karl and Cyndi and Rob Earhardt and Cyndi and Keenan. They are wonderful trainers and just super folks all the way around.

In addition to a tough test the weather conditions were rough. They shut the Am down on Saturday due to the lightning.

The weather was dreadful in the late morning today. I was actually in the holding blind and the thunder and lightning were so bad they had us leave the line and get into our cars for about an hour.

As soon as I ran, I packed my car and started home. Right now in Elko, NV at the friendly Motel 6. As is another Jam from the AM, Glenda Brown and her boy Twist, they A big congrats to Glenda and Twist. Would love to know who else made it through.

Doing well certainly is making that long drive home go quicker.
