A huge Congratulations to our long-time friend and training partner, Joel Harris, for the Amateur win with Marti (our FC/AFC Gracie x FC/AFC Cosmo breeding). We were thrilled when you told us that you had finished the Open, but this takes the cake! Whoop!!! What a great weekend for you and your good little girl that just turned 3 years old last weekend! We wish many more great times to come for you two ~ Enjoy! :)

Dave & I want to thank the PRTA and all the workers for the hard work that they put in to make this trial what it was. I told Dave that this trial was the best one that I have been drug along to, while he judged. The people are great hard workers & the hospitality was great. Not to mention beautiful weather and many great things to see each morning.

Thankyou to Kenny & Marcy, Bart & Bill for all you did to make judges & contestants have a great weekend.

Glenda & Dave Seivert

It was nice to meet you Mike.

We were very proud of our 5 derby dogs!!

They picked up the slack of our Open dogs...haha.

A giant THANK YOU to Brian Biesemeier and Larry Morgan for jumping in to judge the derby when the Open was looking to be a time crunch.

And a big thanks to the rest of the guys worked hard and made it fun to put on this trial.
