As a casual observer, I received a couple calls asking "what's the story with handler/dog team #7" - my only reply was they consistently keep hitting it out of the park. Congratulations you had an outstanding 10 series.

I was out throwing th elong retired gun in the 10th and watched dog after dog hunt deep, come to the holding blind and work it out or handle. Star was one of only 2 dogs to literally go out and step on that long retired bird! Great job Alex. It was a pleasure to watch you. Congratulations on being a finalist!!!

I don't know the whole story but my understanding is that there is way more to " the story" of Alex and #7.....a truck wreck on the way to the National, bringing friends' dog to the National and running him while they were hospitalized and then hitting a home run with his own dog...someone who knows all the details should share them with RTF readers.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. Being our 1st time at a National and not part of any of the training groups we were an unknown team. But we got it done. It was a thrill!!
