    Default CONGRATS: Amateur Chris Hatch and FC/AFC Tealcreek's Patton's Saber

    Just got Retriever Results... this is something worth shouting about.

    SABER:
    Top All Age Dog (of 554 dogs with all age pts. this year). Saber has 10 all age wins, 15 placements for a total of 58.5 pts. this year. He is trained and handled 100% by his breeder-owner Chris Hatch who is an amateur and is still a working man. Rain or shine, weekends or evenings, he is working with Saber.

    Top Amateur Dog (of 351 dogs with amateur pts. this year). Saber has 6 Am wins and 9 placements for a total of 35 Am. pts. this year.

    THREE DOUBLE HEADERS (2 of them this year)! This matches Creek Robber's record of 3 double headers. Retriever Results did not say what other dogs in the past earned 3 double headers so there could be more.

    CHRIS HATCH:
    Top All Age handler. Think about it -- an Amateur is right now the top all age handler. Chris is winning and placing with ONE DOG.
    Top Amateur handler. Think about it -- this is ONE HANDLER handling ONE DOG, not a handler winning or placing with a bunch of dogs.

    Keep it up Chris and Saber ... this is YOUR year. Keep bringing home the ribbons. Only 3 more months in 2013. We want to see you get the award for Top Amateur Dog for 2013. How sweet that would be.

    A super nice guy with a great dog.

    Saber is going to be 9 years old Nov 1. 4DHs may be do-able. Maybe even 5 before he retires. I am not going to say anything to Chris about River Oaks Corky.(ha ha).

    I don't know how many litters Saber has sired but it's not enough. This dog should be getting bred silly.
    I don't know Chris, but my hats off to him. Dedicated amateurs with the right dog and experience will always be players.
