NBOB GRCH Ratituee Grand Slam I Am
LIFE: AUGUST 7, 2008 to AUGUST 20, 2020
DINGER'S titles include: National Best of Breed (UKC), AKC Champion, UKC Grand Champion, UKC Premier Top Ten Best of Breed, UKC Coursing Aptitude, AKC Coursing Aptitude, Canine Good Citizen.
Dinger was bred by the late Andrea Werner. Andrea campaigned Dinger for two years, placing him in the UKC Top Ten; #7 in 2009 and #4 in 2010. At the 2010 UKC Premier Top Ten Invitational, Andrea handled Dinger to the coveted Top Ten Best of Breed Rat Terrier win. Andrea passed away December 10, 2010.  
   "Dinger came to stay with me (Darice Ragan) in February 2011 and my pack welcomed him with open paws. When a dog loses their master, they grieve. I knew Dinger was grieving and my dogs sensed his sadness. About ten days after Dinger came to Tennessee, our hairless terrier, Sage, play bowed and asked him to chase her. He obliged and after they ran around the couch numerous times he jumped in my lap, layed down and sighed...I knew then, he felt secure and would begin to heal his broken heart. From that day, I witnessed a remarkable recovery in his state of mind and a difference in his happiness; he began to smile again. Dinger enjoys his romps across the property, trips to the creek, and just being a dog."
   The rotating ARTA National Specialty was held April 1, 2011, in Hickory, North Carolina and the 2011 American Rat Terrier Association National Best of Breed honor went to GRCH Ratituee Grand Slam I Am, aka Dinger. Darice Ragan said, "I couldn’t be prouder! This was a great honor to handle Dinger at the National. The win was quite emotional for me. It was a beautiful moment and a perfect ending to a tough year."
   "Andrea handled Dinger to the 2010 Premier Invitational Top Ten win in June. The NBOB title was her other goal. I’m proud I accomplished this goal for her. I know she was smiling down from Heaven. When we walked in the show ring at Nationals it was our first time as a team. Dinger was "on" and the outcome was perfect!"
