    Derbies on Saturday start at the conclusion of the Q, they will soon start and end on Sunday
    .
    Hope so, more folks competing is a good thing.
    Just for the record I have very fine dogs. Some of the best in the whole country....or at least on my own block anyhow.

    YOU HAVE SINCE DELETED THAT POST (#57), but see the following quote by you, where you referenced same.




    Let's not get caught up in trying to "win the argument".

    No argument, just a misunderstanding. Post #57 has always been Dan's question that I referneced.

    Is this a serious statement?

    And now some clown can come along and place 2nd in a couple of 20-dog owner/handler Q's and get the same title!!!

    That is the coward's way out!!!!!

    I can't seem to find the regular Q you ran last either. Care to share that information?

    Ya Think?
    Go back to my original post, I don't not believe there should be a Q title. Is that simple enough for you to understand? You might be surprised by the number of animals I have had my hands on the past 15 years. Secondary handlers aren't going to show up on EE search only the owners so keep searching Skippy.

    I don't necessarily believe it should be a title either. I just find it odd that someone that does t participate has such a strong opinion.

    Once you qualify move up.....it's like playing junior varsity when you are supposed to be playing varsity
    But if you move up and start finishing all age stakes, you'd get the QA2 And that's just a start, look for the upcoming QA14, the Q Nationals. And let's not deprive the derby dogs, I'm sure a title for them will be coming soon? LOL, after all, you can now buy MH11 (pick your number). Look for the JH nationals, coming soon....

    OK that's a different issue. What if you're not ready to move up?

    I have a dog that won the first Q she ran at a few months past two. Was I supposed to sit around with my thumb ... for a couple years just so someone else can have an easier go at it? You wanna beat me. Go train your dog.

    I agree.

    And that is why there are rules for how long a dog can run the Q, if ya can't beat them in a Q, you can't beat them in an AA stake....I'll run my dog(s) in the Q for as long as I think is necessary even if they have a win, the rules allow it...talk about wanting to eliminate competition? Next thing you know, people will want those dogs already qualified for a National to stop running until the National....might as well give others a shot at qualifying, right?

    And as a side note: I don't like the idea of the QA2 title...

    Actually, I believe that's where the logic came from. In a way, I can understand that and some feel it is the same thing with running the weekend Q. I don't follow that line of reasoning.
