A NOTE FROM GERMANY
By Uli Gerling

I have read with much interest the commentary about the Reno Championships, especially those about our Polizei team. We are all very moved about these positive observations of our team. We would like to express the same positive comments about all of the wonderful spectators, competitors, and officials -- and especially to all of the K9-handlers and to our friend, Chris Madsen. Without Chris' help, we couldn´t have organized our trip to the Police Dog Championships in Reno.

As I told Chris, our team felt like we were welcomed into a great family. It was not only a great honor for us to take part in this championship, we´ve also had much fun. We quickly realised that there are no language problems between us -- we understood each other perfectly in many ways other than language.

Many, many thanks again to all of you for our unforgettable visit. We hope to see you again soon!
