    I thought it was great coverage all around even with the mishaps. It is indeed interesting when you get dogs of that type of talent together to run, it is always a tossup who will come out on top and I think that is what makes it so interesting and fun in my opinion. And again, congrats to Pete and his owners a job well done and obviously deserving. Also a huge congrats to all the finalists for making it all way to the end. And yet another congrats to those that were even elgible to run in the NRC. To me that is huge in its own right.

    Congratulations Pete Zylla, Bob, Steve, Lynn and breeders Rita and Frank Jones! Pete is a wonderful dog. He lives in the house at Steve's and at home. Bob is a regular guy with one great dog, who shows up in his PT Cruiser and kicks our butts a lot of weekends! Pete is a force with Bob and with Steve. Pete's trial record speaks for itself.


    2011, 2 Open wins, 17.5 points. 1 Amateur win, 9.5 points.
    2012, 5 Open wins, 38.5 points. 2 Amateur wins, 11 points.
    Career Points (per RetrieverResults.com) 94. Pete had 39 Derby points. Thank you Retriever Results for the providing great reports on the dogs.!

    I believe the NFC points make Pete the 2012 High Point Open dog and the Purina High Point dog!! WHOO HOO!

    Congratulations to all the Finalists!!

    Bob,

    I cannot express my happiness for you, Pete and your training team! I remember you bitching about an Amat waterblind in Fargo this summer.

    No more complaining ever about your amazing buddy OK? I will not tolerate it.

    Congrats to all who Qualified.

    Huge congratulations to Bob and Pete. He's a very special dog and Steve Yozamp has done a tremendous job of training him and his owner. Bob and Steve train together almost every day and Bob commonly helps out at trials. Bob talks a lot a the flier station and is one heck of a crack shot. And to think that Pete sired I believe his first an only litter this summer.

    Way to go team Outback Retrievers!

    Yep, congrats to all. It's an achievement to be qualified to even run the nat'l. To compete well over 10 series, even more so. Again, congrats to all. And a special shout out to Wendy, who's won it and who just keeps keeping on at 10 1/2 yrs & her handler, Ken Neil. She is just consistently tough, week after week. Those kind don't come around very often.

    There were 2 pairs of Finalists that were unique and could possibly be firsts. Can you name them and their relationship?
