and it went to someone I know. His dog is a lab, not a poodle, but Bob Fullum from Staten Island is someone who I see often at trails. He and his dog Zorro got the last points they needed for the RACh (under to old point schedule) at Port Chester Obedience's November 3rd trial. This honor could not have gone to a better team than Bob and Zorro.

There will be a flood of new RACh titles early in 2019 when the new rules and the retroactive point assignments are made, but I am so impressed that somebody (and somebody I know and really respect as a trainer) made it happen under the old point schedule just about a year after this new title first became available.

I am very impressed by anyone who did that title or is very close under the old points schedule. I think there will be a number of RACh's awarded as soon as they recalculate the points.

Hey, Catherine,

One of our obedience club members got the Rally Masters title on November 4th. It was a Toller. He had 10/10 qualifying scores and finished with a first place. I was impressed.

That is wonderful. I hope they will go on since it sounds like they are getting nice scores to collect points with from the Master class. I have had a couple of NQs in Master with Lily but I think we have left that behind us and that she will raise her batting average to that of her RAE experience where it only took us about 96 trials to get her 90 double Qs (keeping in mind that there were two times judges messed things up for us, that isn't a bad rate of double Qs.

Loved that article, Catherine. Thank you for sharing. Really beautiful!

Bob really is just the nicest person and his friendship with Oliver and his adoption of Carly after his passing really says it all!

Martha, Bob sometimes works as a match judge at Top Dog. It is nice to get in his ring since at most of the places we match most of the judges are women. He also has a nice way of telling you what he sees and also will do whatever oddball thing you ask him to do like strange heeling patterns and repeating things several times, etc.
