Congrats to my good friend Al Wilson. I was training today with my Twister cap that Al gave me. Back to back Open wins with Ruby and Twister! WOW. This qualifies Twister for the Natl Open where he will join Ruby who qualfied last week.

Al trains hard and has fun with his dogs, and he's being rewarded for it.

Yes, Kim, all does have the pro's talking now!

Congrats to the derby placements. I went out on the second series:( and left, had dogs at home to train, so I didn't see the third and fourth. The second was a pretty tough test so I can only imagine what the 3rd and 4th were like. Placements well deserved

09-29-2008, 09:51 AM
Congrats to Lynn Nelson. She handled her gm Rio to a 4th in the Qualifying. Also Rob Erhardt handled my Moose to the 4th in the Derby. Thats all I know.

I think that gives Pink 52 points now ?!? 7 wins in the last 8 trials!
