    It's a journey only you will take, those who have not been there will never appreciate the immensity of what you have posted. Here's to continued good fortune . It's amazing how all the effort & expenditure seems trivial when the color is other than green .

    Buzz, I still look at the little Pintail decoy that is the trophy I received for my first all-age placement 22 years ago this past weekend. It is special to me for many reasons. It was the week my son was born. That dog was my first "serious" dog and I miss him to this day. And, like you, I had been working at reaching the all age level for a while. To me, it was a milestone. Most of the trophies that came along during the years since then have been displayed for a while, then boxed up during a move. But that little decoy is still proudly displayed always... Congrats on the achievement, and here's to many more.
