    Default DOUBLE HEADER: Chris Hatch and Saber

    Congratulations to Chris Hatch, a true amateur who trains and handles his own dogs. In this case, he is also Saber's breeder. How sweet that is !

    It was a DOUBLE HEADER this past weekend for Chris and Saber .... FC/AFC Teal Creek Patton's Saber won the Open and won the Amateur in Anderson, CA. Saber now has 100 all-age points. He also is qualified to run the 2013 National Amateur. The Open win may have qualified them to run in the 2013 National Open, too.

    Chris is not retired. He is a working man who trains Saber on weekends, after work until dark, and sometimes takes one day off during the week to train. When not running trials, he judges. Chris Hatch is dedicated to this sport and we salute him on a JOB WELL DONE !

    I had seen that he'd won both the open and the am. Great Going!!

    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
