    Or am I way off?

    Congratulations to all the qualifiers, finalists, and especially Team Pete! Pete loved his steak at the winner's party!

    It was an exhausting yet exhilarating week and thanks to everyone who worked hard to make it happen, and to the judges for dedicating two grueling weeks to the sport.
    We were lucky enough to be there for the end of the 9th and most of the 10th. Absolutely an amazing experience.

    The National issue of Retriever News will have some statistics including the average age of the starters which typically is +\-7 years old.

    and the one I didn't know about sire #15 Slider and dam #79 Sally, maybe both at their first National Championship Stake too?

    How cool is that?

    Congrats Dr.Ed

    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

    Wow - 11 or nearly 11 is amazing to hold it together for so many days. Wonder how he/she was kept fit.
