    Cool. Thanks for sharing.
    BTW, we attended a Game Fair in Stirling a few years ago. Still think of that as one of the most enjoyable days we ever spent in the UK. Very close to playing the Old...

    Right now the dog is in charge. You need to assert control. Set the standards and enforce them. If you don't want to discipline pup then take away the stimuli. Biting, leg humping, aggressive...

    I shouldn't worry. There are much worse things that dogs will eat. Our Lyle, 8 yr old GM, loves to chew, eat and otherwise make a mess of sticks, wood and palmetto boots. So far, no issues.

    Sure you can. I expect you'll find that, as I did, the more rigorous training for FTs will improve your work at HTs. Just remember to throw a few short "check down" birds for the pups. (Don't ask me...

    Damn. Lanse was a real character. Never forget our first meeting, and how supportive he was of this newbie at his first derby. He'll be missed.

    The cost of the "Xray" is likely high due to the need to anesthetize your dog. Whether the dog really needs to be put under for an xray is debatable and depends on the dog. We have a vet who...

    Puts a smile on your face and that's good, not silly. Just came inside from walking our pack with a 2, 8 and 11 year old doing their "loops" trying to outrun each other. Pure joy.

    Sure. Pay attention to where folks are parking. Wear dark or drab clothing. Introduce yourself and ask questions. Take a chair, some peanuts or other snacks to pass around and you'll be welcomed.
