    Default Thanks From 2007 Nafc-fc Good Idea's Whoa Nellie

    Kenny and I would like to say THANK YOU to everyone that congratulated us. It means so much to us to see how many Nellie fans are out there!!

    We are so blessed to have a opportunity to stand next to such a fine dog as Whoa Nellie...she truly is amazing and continues to make Kenny look good!!! Nellie had TPLO surgery done on 3/8/07 by John Sherman and hadn't run a trial since last year Dec. The terrain was very, very tough and you can imagine that "Mommy" (Brenda) was very, very nervous the whole week, but it never slowed Nellie down!!

    Kenny and I both want to thank the Judges, Dr Bill Goldstein, Sally Foster and Linda Patterson for setting up just Great and Challenging tests, the locations were just beautiful. We would also like to give a BIG THANK YOU to all the committee members that worked so so hard for the 2 weeks to put the National on.

    Kenny and I would like to Congratulate all the Finalists, it was a honor to be standing next to all those GREAT DOGS and HANDLERS!!!

    Last but by all means not least we want to THANK Alan Pleasant for training both Nellie and Kenny!!! And of course thanks to Gwen Pleasant who keeps it all together!

    Thanks to our pre-national training group of Alan Pleasant, Hugh Arthur, Andy Attar and Jerry Patopea......WOW how can you miss with a great group of pro's like that. They worked so hard and really set up great tests to prepare our dogs for the week. THANK YOU!!

    We would also like to thank all the Amateurs, bird throwers and gunners we had helping us during pre-national training. Clint Joyner, Andrea Meisse, Mark Menzie, Clay and Debbie Jones, Gary and Elizabeth Unger, Linda Harger, Gary Zellner, Rob Reuter, Lisa Kane and Grace Mondrosch, John Stracka, Bob Johnson. Ron Foley, Don Preston, Darrel and Justin.

    Still walking on clouds,
    Ken, Brenda and Whoa Nellie

    Congratulations to you "Mom"! Congratulations to the whole team!

    It's always great when an "RTF dog" scores big.... I'd say this little old NAFC thing qualifies as a pretty big score!

    You must be feeling great!

    Sincerely,

    Chris

    Man, I get excited when we get a hunt test ribbon - you'd have to peel me off the ceiling for something like this!

    Congrats - I've heard nothing but great things about Nellie - one of Alan's old assistants is a friend and he said Nellie is just a top notch performer(which is of course pretty obvious now...) and as sweet as can be.
