Well, I can see it both ways.
A few years ago I was fortunate to get a win on Archie and qualify him for the Natl Am. I was entered in two more events, the last two I could run before the Natls due to a long-planned Italy vacation.
I went ahead and ran him the next week, because I still needed to get two points with Gracie to get HER qualified and I figured I might as well run them both since they were already entered. I was doubly blessed with a win at that trial with Gracie to get both of them qualified.
I figured that I had more good fortune than any one man could handle with two wins in two weeks and scratched both of them the next week, cause I wanted some of my friends to have the same chance to experience the exhiliration of getting a dog qualified.
I'm heading to Colorado tomorrow for my last try to get those pesty two points with Gracie for my last chance. It would sure hurt if I get a third and the two dogs that beat me are both qualfied for the Natl Am.
But, I wouldn't be upset about it. Its a personal choice that folks have to make, and it's not my choice.
Happy Memorial day everybody.
