MoP,

What an outstanding Derby Career "Team Proof" has had!

Team Proof accomplished so many milestones:
* Run a Derby
* Get through the first series of a Derby
* Finish a Derby
* Win a Derby
* Make the Derby List
* Become the 2016 Top Derby Golden

We are very proud of what Team Proof accomplished.
It's not easy; I'm sure that there have been many untold sacrifices along the way.
The Team Proof story will continue, with many chapters yet to be written ... I look forward to the next one.

Thank you for all your advice and encouragement, you and George have been so wonderful.

You forgot two more goals that I had!!
Beat the Baker trucker, and that meant me handling Proof. The other time didn't count.

Be ranked in the top 10 in the country on Retriever Results and he is currently ranked #7 so lets hope that sticks.

Proof kept beating all of our goals so quickly I had to come up with new ones, ha ha! It was fun, man, it was so fun I was told this morning by Hugh that I might not even have another dog lab, golden whatever that makes the derby list. Its tough to do! And Proof rocked it so hard!! He is such a little maniac.

Proofers got his steak for a job well done!

I couldn't agree more with this post, and coming from FTGoldens....can't be higher praise than this! MoP, you tell the story so well. Post #10 was so awesome to read. You really need to write a book on this amazing accomplishment with Proof. I can't wait to see and read what's next up for the rwo of you. I have several times seen posters question why no newcomers are entering this sport. I would be willing to bet more than a few that read that post will take up HT/FT as a result. Congratulation on an inspiring derby year with that sweet puppy Proof. Hope to meet you guy's at next year's events. Tom

thank you, Tom! I agree, can't get any better than to have the praise of FTGoldens! I hope people try derbies more with their dogs. It really is a fun sport. I hope that dogs like Proof and Autumn inspire other golden owners to try this and realize it is possible to play the game with the black mafia. Might not always win, but guess what? The black dogs don't always win either! We can't sell our goldens short. If they have the talent and enjoy the sport, they should play too. And they should be encouraged because we have to keep their abilities strong and pass on their genes to future generations. I can't tell you how many lab owners have come up to me and said, I had no idea a golden could run that hard or hit water like that. yep, that's right, baby! You just got smoked by a red dog! hee hee, teasing! #goldenlife
