    Good luck to #29 Punch and Alex! Punch is the litter brother to my AA dog Moose.

    All my favorites but one have been dropped. I like Punch handled by Alex Washburn. I have trained with Punch before and he is a great dog. And Jay Patton is a fine as person as you will ever meet.

    If you remember Punch was the top derby dog a few years ago.

    Good memory, JTS. Pink's point count was off by one point. This was because months after a trial, AKC disqualified a Derby dog's placement due to running without an AKC registration number (the litter number was used to enter the dog). When the dog was disqualified by AKC, his Derby placement was removed. This moved Pink up one placement in the Derby to get another point. (It also moved up the other Derby dogs; the RJ became 4th etc).

    Top Derby dog is not an AKC award. AKC does not do the point counting and has nothing to do with who is or who is not the top Derby dog. AKC never told Retriever News (who does do the point counting) nor the club that had given the trial that they had disqualified a dog and that they had changed the Derby placements. AKC did send a letter to the owner of the disqualified dog advising him that the dog had been disqualified and why.

    That happened to John Cavanaugh and FC AFC Max Millenium in 2001 in Virginia, MN in the 10th series. He handled over and over to a fairly short bird in heavy cover on a hot muggy afternoon and the dog just could not come up with the bird. The entire gallery was holding it's collective breath hoping the dog would get the bird before he overheated. Finally John just dropped his hands and weakly said "here"... It was heartbreaking. I was sitting there in the gallery nursing my own wounds till that point. THAT had to leave a mark. Last bird. Right out front... I don't know John, but remember what a gentlemen he was about it and he came back to the gallery after taking care of his dog. Class act.
