This was Tom's first
time to handle a dog
in the Futurity.  

LSCDF Rules allowed Ruth
to work the
gates for Tom.
As Tom, Ruth & Kelli  
entered the arena for the
first time, they were
greeted by a rousting
rendition of "Boomer
Sooner".  

I know it was hard for a
Texas girl to  
hear that, Thanks Jan  :)
Speaking of new friends -  
Jan Simmons was our own
Oaktree BC webmaster,
whom we got to meet for
the first time at the Futurity
And, don't forget our
longtime friend, Barbara

LSCDF office running smooth!y
