A member has withdrawn for health reasons.
We regret to announce that Ann Braue and Scream, who were to represent the US at next week's IFCS World Agility Championships, have had to withdraw from the team. On Monday, a mass was found near the base of Scream's tail and he will undergo surgery soon to remove it. At this time it appears lymph nodes and other organs are not affected. The USDAA community wishes Scream a speedy and full recovery.
After Scream's withdrawal, USA coach Rachel Sanders contacted Dudley Fontaine and discovered that Maverick, who had been withdrawn from the team earlier due to a soft tissue injury, has been given the OK to resume normal competition. Maverick will rejoin the team and compete in the 26" class.
