    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Susan, I can still see your face as you came over to the still-running Am, after you got the Open placements - you had a neat combination of a delighted, yet stunned, look on your face!

    I'm sorry you're not going to Ronan, I know that the logistics on short notice are daunting....but still, I wish you were going to be there. The Ruckster is clearly on a roll and coming on strong. And you two are a team and earned it.

    It's gracious of you to acknowledge Pat and his assist. I'm not surprised - he's just that kind of guy.

    You and I are blessed to be surrounded by pro trainers that are class acts.

    So congratulations on a wonderful accomplishment with Ruckus. You two are - and will continue to be - a force to contend with going forward.

    Just an update on Ruckus.


    While the tenth was underway at the National, Susan was able to make a day trip to train with an impressive group of FT and HT folks at an RTF member's home. It was a wonderful day and Ruckus made the setup, which gave nearly every dog some challenges, look like a piece of cake.


    I'm confident that if they'd have been in a position to run at the National AM this week, they'd have gotten some folks' attention. I'd also have included this dog in my Pick'Em game picks!


    Susan, you've truly got the dog of a lifetime. Congratulations on this fine animal.
