Post by: Lin Battaglia on June 24, 2014, 09:31:17 AM
Someone once said ...."The show must go on" and it did.

In spite of our personal family heartbreak the trial went on and we don't want to miss congratulating the fabulous teams and their successes over the weekend. Everyone did a great job and it shows. Thank to our judge Jeff Lyons for great courses that challenged us but were fun

Rusty and Tony Kopas ....NATCH 4
Journey and Kelly Wilson ....NATCH 2
Paris and Sally Dulco ....Regular NATCH 2 and Vers NATCH 2
Angie and Alix Ginter ....Regular NATCH 1 and Vers NATCH 1
Dare and Lin Battaglia ....Vers NATCH 1
Esteem and Lin Battaglia ....Vers NATCH 5 and a beautiful 20 point BONUS Chances

Thank you everyone for your help, especially friends that ran our dogs while we were at the vet with Sweep. The definitive call came yesterday confirming what we already knew, our precious little Sweep has Lymphoma. We have experience with this as you know. We will keep him as comfortable as possible for the short time he has left.

I feel the light in my heart has gone out.
