    I also heard that Joe Harp won the derby with Ziggy! Congrats to Tim and Shannon Thurby, and Twin Oak Kennels on Ziggy making the derby list with 2 wins in the last 3 trials.

    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

    Bad things happen when you ask common dogs to do uncommon things.

    Thanks to the Bluegrass club for a great job.

    Tim Kreher and his KY Wildlife Management, team do an amazing job of balancing this resource for wildlife - and the retriever sports also benefit.

    Thanks Sherie,

    It was great seeing you and Clint.

    I don't know how much you heard, but my co-judge was pretty good at deflecting all critical comments towards me. I'd imagine he'll want to take a bit of credit for your compliments. And frankly...he should take quite a bit of credit. He knows a good bit about setting up good tests to get the right answers without "killing" the pups.

    I love that new mound they put in the field that I know as the David DuPont field.

    It was a great time.

    Thanks! Chris
