The excitement in the air at the Roberts Centre as the dogs performed and online as friends and families watched from home was electrifying,” said Pamela Manaton, Director of Obedience, Rally and Tracking.

The inaugural Patricia R. Krause “Soaring Eagle” Perpetual Memorial Trophy was presented to Teresa Czaplinski and her Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, CH Kd’s Indy Tax Declaration UDX3 OM2 BN VER RAE (Claira), from Fountaintown, IN.
