    I was shooting the flyer for the AM. What was surprising to me was hearing several handlers in the amateur all-age pulling for another dog that just needed one more point to get its AFC. Unfortunately it got a RJ, but the people were all a pleasure to be around. I wish that old fluffy dog the best of luck.
    Congrats Bubba
    Your heirs have no idea how much that green ribbon will end up costing them

    Keep up the good work, and color will come!!

    I remember getting a JAM in a Qualifying Stake. Waiting around after the trial like a kid peeking down the staircase to see Santa.
    When they called my number and I bolted up there pumping the judges hand like I was filling a bike tire they must have thought I was crazy.

    I hope I never lose that excitement if I get there one or 10 more times.

    Congratulations~

    You and Colby did a great job Bubba! We enjoyed cheering for you.
    And yeah, it was a bummer for the Fluffy dog to get that close to his AFC. We were pulling hard for our kin folks.

    That WOULD Absolutely be VERY exciting.

    To be able to have the talent to stay in and Play till the end would be very special...and to get recognition from the judges!!! WOW!!

    Congrats to you! You must be working very hard!

    Congrats to Bubba and Joe, 2 familiar names from hunt tests. I've run under Bubba (very cool water series) and been a smart arse in the gallery with Joe a number of times. Both were good experiences. Keep up the good work.
