The US National is in Texas this year, so that is why we made the trek down earlier than normal. Pre-National training started on Monday and it's been a busy few days getting the dogs ready.
Our pre-National group consists of Dave Rorem, Bill Eckett, Rob Erhardt, Wayne Curtis, Randy Bohn and of course, the Luckiest Man Alive, Kenny Trott. There are also several Amateurs with dogs qualified in the group.

And the second CANADIAN dog qualified for the US National. FC AFC CFC CAFC L and L Just A Gigalo - "Deuce". He is owned and will be run by Howard Simson of Ontario. Deuce trains with pro Kevin Cheff.

It is great fun having both the Canadian dogs that are qualified in our pre-National group!!
Plus, we can't forget the Canadian BRED "Turq". I'll get some pics of Darbi's son up soon.
