"Rio" Won Amateur

Okay, everyone cheer for AFC FTCH AFTCH Heads Up Fire in the Hole, owned and handled by Lynn Nelson, who won the Amateur at the Southern Arizona Retriever Club field trial.
"Rio" won the stake against a field of 61 other dogs (I think there were 59 Labs that Rio beat!!!), including 19 other titled dogs, which included a National Amateur Field Champion.
That's a really BIG WIN!
Congratulations Lynn & Rio!
