A little late, but wanted to thank BAD for bringing Rachelle back again.  What a wonderful person and judge!  I sat next two to moms and their 11 and 12 year old daughters (I didn't know them until that day) who were running at their first trial.  The girls were nervous and had both good and less good moments out on their Intro courses, but they could NOt have picked a better judge to debut under. She was so helpful and supportive--when I left at the end of the day she was sitting on the floor chatting with the four of them, offering encouragement and advice. What a wonderful NADAC representative!
I also appreciated BAD's new program, where by Not taking your ribbons (which is what so many of us I...or don't do, I guess is more correct!) but instead putting them in a basket near the ribbon drawer, the club tallies those "returned" ribbons and makes a donation to the K9 Warrioirs Fund. What a fantastic and generous idea!  Well done BAD!
