    Congrats again Dan. Y'all had a heck of a weekend, and that was as flawless as you could've run 4 series. We gave you all we had, but just couldn't dig out that last bird.

    Congratulations Dan, Awesome job. 2 time open Champ. This was our first BSS national. We had a blast and even got a JAm in puppy. Now we are hook on coming back every year. It was amazing the skills the LBD have in all classes.

    Thanks for all the congrats. It's been 4 years since the first Championship which made this one even sweeter. The field was packed with great dogs, BlaineT's pup Drake was there till the last bird, what a great run. Chief was on his game and able to hold it together over the two day competition. He just turned 8 but still ran like a young dog. He really loves this and seamed to be able step up to the plate when needed. I'm extremely lucky to have been a part of this fabulous ride where we have met so many great people.

    He definitely doesn't run like an old man. Steady and consistent. Always made good decisions.
    Paul Lemmond and Mary Williams should also be applauded for setting up 4 great series of tests and being fun judges to run under.
