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