Title: Congratulations to all teams on the Hall of Fame lists
Post by: Sharon Nelson on December 07, 2014, 02:12:17 PM
A huge congratulations to all of the amazing dog and handler team that met the stringent criteria needed to earn one of the awards that qualifies them for the NADAC Hall of Fame.

With over 75,000 dogs competing and earning qualifying runs only 493 dogs have earned their place in the NADAC Hall of Fame.  Some dogs earned a place in multiple categories!

What an honor it is to recognize these teams with the NADAC Hall of Fame.  These files will be made into pages on the NADAC web site in the next month and we hope to have photos of each of these great dogs!

Does my heart good to see the names of dogs who are no longer with us ... Loved seeing my Reilly's name on a couple of the lists.

Do you want photos of everyone on the list or just the first 5 (10?) on each.  I thought I read when this was first announced it was just the first few that needed to send photos.  Also, how often will this be updated?  (Truly is only a few Qs away from her Elite All Around and Triple Superior Versatility, haha.)

We would like pictures of all of them please!

Do you want just one photo of each dog or a photo for each different list they appear in? I have a LOT of photos to choose from. ;)

Scooter has 7 NATCHes and 5 Versatility NATCHes for a total of 12 different NATCHes.  So yes, he should be listed in the 10 NATCH Club listing.

Well that was like a walk down memory lane - so very special.  Thank you so much Sharon for putting these lists together.  Great accomplishments by many great teams.  Congratulations everyone!

Wow indeed.  Congrats to all of my friends (and pretty amazing to me how many of these dogs and handlers I know and remember).  Thanks for taking the time to do this, Sharon.  (and holy cow, more goals to shoot for .... I thought earning 2 speed stars was a pretty major accomplishment!!  :) )

Thank you for clarifying!  I'm honored to be in the 10 NATCH Club listing--just didn't want to be there if we hadn't really earned it.

Congratulations to everyone who made the 10 NATCHes list.   I retired Panda a year ago 1 jumpers short of his 10th overall NATCH.    We tried about 10 times to get it and we were so close.   So I know just how hard it is to do it.

I totally love this. My girl Ellie is towards the end of her career, as her vision is decreasing due to her advancing age (likely older than I have her listed) and this is a very special recognition of a little mixed breed terrier, found on prenant on the streets of south Texas, and once scheduled to be euthanized. She became the "mama" dog to my 3 shelties, and every puppy she sees. It's been an amazing career with her.

Thank you Sharon and NADAC. It's so bitter sweet to see the names of my old dogs gone now. I would give back every award to have those dogs back again. Miss them every day....they taught me so much about life.

Thank you Sharon for all the work that went into compiling this. It was a treat to look back to see all those great dogs from the past.

Thanks for reloading the Natch files.  Great to now see Ozzie in the list!  He was the coolest dog inspite of my flaws.

My thanks also for reloading the NATCH files! It really is a trip down memory lane seeing all these old dogs.  We didn't know nearly as much about training back then and they did wonderful things in spite our bad training.  Maggie was an excellent teacher and her teaching has helped me to help others.
