AOH 2 years later... While I did enjoy most of your article, especially the points about professional athletes and the stigma assosiated with the word amateur (they are points I frequently make) I did not appreciate the last sentance implying the AOH class is a crutch or a second teir class. My Scotty is the third all breed, first terrier and first Scottish Terrier AOH champion. He defeated specials and professionals along the way, and though he is my first Scottie and first terrier he NOT my first show dog by any means. AOH is not the new "novice class, it is for the owner handler that is proud to be Owner Handling their dog. I hope to finish my next dog, my Belgian Sheepdog from AOH as well. My Scottie is CH Charthill The Emperor's New Groove From Locksley
