My dogs first master pass was at David Kress place. 90 entered, 13 passed. 1 am, me! Dont tell me that didnt mean something. Ill never run the Master national due to the requirements to get 5 passes per year to qualify. Thats a money making AKC machine. Ran 1 grand and pointed out in the 4th series, but thats a sore story. Wont do that again either.Can’t worry about that bs! You gotta let that crap go in one ear and out the other. Who cares what others say! Be proud of what you and your dog accomplished! Many have a MH or better but many have not and have no clue what it takes to get a MH title.
