    I don't know Dale, but I do know Clint Avant and Erin and they are both first class individuals. Think of what this is like. We start out as Amateurs trying to gain acceptance - trying to finish any stake. Happy to receive a green ribbon because we finished a trial. It is a long struggle. It is far easier to quit than continue. For some reason some of us continue. We train, struggle, learn, repeat, and maybe someday succeed. Dale ... for all those that say it can't happen, I congratulate you. Your first placement is a win. Cherish the moment! I assure you you will never forget this feeling. As an addendum, think of what this is like for the trainer(s). Just my humble opinion, but little can be as rewarding as training both the dog and the handler. Congratulations!

    Great win Dale! And talk about a prestigious lineup of finishers. By my count, Tia, Holland, Thief and Riot have qualified for 19 Nationals, each has been a National finalist, and they collectively have well over 300 AA points! Their handlers' years of experience and success is beyond comprehension. Very impressive. Congratulations to all.
