The mornings started out pretty chilly but turned out to be beautiful days for racers and handlers alike! Overall the weekend was fun and filled with great attitudes that made the meets and matches run smoothly with plenty of laughter. Ellen Feldheim would have had a good time at this one. Her Spirit Award went home with Deborah Bahm on Saturday and Cathy Williams on Sunday. We missed both Lennie and Ellen and their dogs this weekend, but they were in our hearts.
