So very happy for all the winners, but particularly so for Storie and the McKnights. Good to see something nice happen, and if I'm not mistaken, they were walk-on qualifiers to participate in the first place.

How cool is that?! Good job, everyone!!

Thanks everyone, very happy for the old girl! Yes pat, we walked on (as did the winning dog) and made the big jump on our first of 3 jumps. Her distance of 31'10" was her 2nd biggest PPIDC jump ever.

This will be televised nationally in later January on NBC I believe.

JD--I was trying to remember, you have never placed that high in the Purina Incredible Dog National Challenge? Saw that Prospect placed 4th..

Storie had never finished lower than 4th at any PPIDC event and has won a regional in both distance and Fetch-IT. As far as the National Championship, 3rd, 3rd, 4th and 2nd this year in her 4 years of competing.

Prospect lost 3rd by just 1" and between Prospect, Detox and Storie, the 3 smallest (by length) in the field. This means they outjumped the bigger dogs by 2' or so to the tail.

Congrats again to Storie! Sorry that Prospect didn't place, as I liked them.. A great finale to Storie's career at Purina Incredible Dog Challenge!

She is 7 and probably towards the end of her big jumping days. We will see how it goes but at some point age will catch up with the big jumps. Realistically, we figured this was her last legitimate shot at an event with dogs of this caliber. Overall, probably the biggest jumping field we have ever competed with.
