It is with great pleasure that I nominate 8X Am Fld CH/NAFC/FC/AFC Pride and Joy’s Bunch of Annie for the Brittany Field Trial Hall of Fame. Annie was produced by a mating of 4X Am Fld CH/DC/AFC A Bunch of Butch and Top Gun Annie, a full sister to NFC/FC/AFC Aux-Arc’s Mark. From her beginnings in Kansas at the kennel of Bill Burton, her early training with owner Frank Pride, and trials throughout the Midwest and her final days in Maine, Annie was a consistent winner. Her record speaks for itself. Of special note are her consistent first and second place wins from 1998 to 2004 in championship stakes in Kansas, Texas, Illinois, Arkansas, and New England. Notably, she placed 2nd in the Dub Emde Championship (2004), 1st in the Region 6 Amateur All Age (2004), 2nd in the Texas All Age Championship (2002) and the Texas Amateur Championship (2001). She won the Region 6 Amateur Championship (2001) and the Mid South Open Championship (2000) to name just a few. She placed 4th in the ABC National Amateur Championship in 2001, moved to 3rd place in 2002, and won the ABC National Amateur Championship in 2003 in a field of 57 dogs. One of her most memorable placements was her second place in the 2000 ABC National Open Championship against 92 other dogs. All told, she had 18 first or second placements in championships. Known as a dog who was quick off the breakaway and one who had tremendous reach as she ran an edge, Annie made it all seem simple and effortless. She is truly one of the Brittany elite. I encourage you to cast your vote for this deserving dog in the Brittany Field Trial Hall of Fame.
