Dutch aren´t good enough this year. With low ´90´s and high ´80´s on B/C will not do it :cry: and tracking on something else than green grass isnt practiced much so no title for us I guess. Mario Verslype is doing great indeed.

There are a few of your countrymen left to go Selena, ya never know;) I'd trade the use of some non-green grass etc., for a KNPV club:smile:

I should have posted Yagus's handlers name up there - thanks for clarifying who his handler is Selena.

Well i don´t see a podium place for us :wink:

I do see one for Mario and Yagus, and well deserved to...usually he also scores high in ´90´s for tracking so I guess I set my hope to him.

Okay I know I'm a little fanatical about this competition but .......

The scores are in for Yagus and Mario - 91 98 97 = 286 Looks like he has a very good shot as it stands now for a podium placement.

Ivan scored a 94 in Protection which gives him 97 ___ 94.....Hopefully he will score at least his normal 97 (or higher :) ) in obedience and he just might have this competition!

Marina scored an 88 in obedience this morning 97 88 _____

Greg scored a 92 in obedience this morning 92 89 ____

Cari scored a 85 in protection this morning 95 ____ 85

Mike Morgan, who I think is one of the nicest competitors I have ever met, has not gone yet in any of the phases (luck of the draw?) and is definitely capable of obtaining a podium position.

They are all doing a great job at representing the US and AWMA in this competition!


On a side note...the pictures on the site are pretty descent (1st days) - even though in the 2 of the USA team during the opening ceremony either Ivan is out of the picture or Greg is out of the picture.....Ivan has a "American Flag" bandana around Quenny's neck.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ivan's the man:smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile:

I must also add that Marina and L'Simba Du Loups Du Soleil scored a 97 in the protection phase - GREAT JOB - their overall score was a very respectable 280.

Wonder what happened to Cari and Nyyko in obedience?????? It's a shame that dogs like to show their butts at the worst time because his obedience is usually excellent .....maybe he got into the vodka????:)

Marina was with our club MVSV until recently moving to California. I remember when she got as pup (which was less than 3 years ago). Amazing young trainer who has great talent and most of all puts the time and effort that all her scores show.

Quenny I believe to be about 6 years old. I cant remember (getting CRS " cant remember sh..") but I do believe Marina's is still a 2 year old.

Someone posted a link to video's taken of numerous dogs/competitors (they'll be adding even more) at the FMBB on the AWMA site - thought I'd share for those curious/interested...gotta scroll halfway down the first page till you come to them.
