    I look at it as a rental apartment - you essentially "own" it while you occupy it as long as you abide by the lease, in this case the rules and how the judges have set it up. I also think you should...

    The reason there are only 45 master dogs is because the club is not a member of the MNRC. Every other master test in this area has been the maximum 60 except the easter test.
