Mr. Steve Ralph. Her owner Mr. Jerry McGee is very familiar with being in the winner's circle with Penny. His dedication to this sport has been rewarded many times over the last several National Events.
On Saturday night we celebrated with Mr. David Webb on Irish's 2016 Purina Dog of the Year Award. ABC President Dr. Bob Rankin presented Dave and Tom with the original oil painting by Artist Ross Young. Mr. David Webb has spent a lifetime hunting over Brittany's, writing and publishing several books. Dave has been dedicated to the sport of Field Trials and our Kennel for years. He did not fail to recognize the lineage that has been instrumental in producing such a consistent and successful Brittany. He also recognized Tom's training and handling as well as the many Amatuer Handlers who competed with Irish. Irish is a once in a lifetime Brittany who was sired by CVKs very own Ortho Acres Booker T.
Following the Presentation of the Painting of Irish we moved on to name the 2017 Purina Dog Of The Year which was once again Glade Run Irish. Irish has had two Incredible Seasons having won the 2016 ABC Amatuer All Age Championship and now back to back Purina Adwards. Thanks to Purina for providing our Brittany's with Pro Plan Sport.

The National Open All Age began on Sunday. The conditions were dry and hot with very little water on the course. The air was still and the dust was rising beneath the horses. Irish was drawn to run in the sixth brace of the first day. Tom brought Irish to the line and blew the whistle Irish headed to the front with style and purpose. Irish completed his hour with four stylish finds and a race that had the gallery sitting up in their saddles.
Irish was posted and named Dog of the Day , but we had along way to go. Many more competitors came to the line, but Irish's performance withstood the challangers to be named Champion. Cedar Valley Kennel would like to thank the judges Mr. William Smith of Tennesse and Mr. Chris Rider of Pennsylvania. Mr. Kent Patterson of Tennessee accepted the responsibility to report the event and we are very thankful for his commitment to this event.
