Rich Pingatore and Nitro qualify for the National Open. Kerry Lavin and Maddie qualify for the National Amateur.
With much help from friends to prepare us, and with Dave Rorem's exceptional pre-national training assistance we, thankfully, made it through all ten series of tests. It was an experience of a lifetime!
Maddie earned her AFC title this spring and qualified for the National Amateur in June. Being it was in beautiful Ronan, MT, we entered with no expectations of finishing, but just to have a good time for as long aswe could.
Dude earns a third place in his final Derby for a total of 32 points in 11 trials. He got second place in the Qualifying the same weekend.
Two more pups from the Ruby X Saber litter finish their FC titles.
FC AFC Buck In Bobby finished his FC title at the Shasta Cascade Trial.
FC AFC Midnight Shooter finished his FC title at the Wood River Trial.
They join their sister, FC AFC Flyway's Long Tall Sally and brother, FC AFC Cool Fuel MH, all with their FC AFC titles. Congratulations to the owners of these wonderful dogs. And finally, CONGRATULATIONS to their very special breeders.
