I am glad I got two of them now!

I am glad I got two of them now!
Yes. I know of couple of the Judges pretty well. :D
I heard this same story this weekend, someone thought they scratched one dog and it scratched all that handler's entries.
I have one of these, and it is worth every penny.
I have used most of what is available (but not the MoMarsh), including all the "big names," a couple prototypes that never made it market, as well as climbing stand bottoms, and home made stands. I...
I have never seen an AFC run an HRC hunt test. I have seen QAA dogs bomb a master test in a big way. That is no rap on FT dogs at ALL. They just overran a series of marks shorter than they saw as...
Its considered "bad sport" to shoot the "gimmies" in the UK, and proper sport to take the hard shots, the higher the better. Seems backwards to me, too. But that is sure how they roll.
It takes away from Labs of both backgrounds for the "differences" to be vastly oversold for marketing schemes. I titled one of the first few HRCH (500) UH MH "british dogs" with UK style trial...
To paraphrase the volumes I have written on this topic on this site: Dogs don't know where they came from, dogs only know how you train them.
I have parka/tops of both the Bass Pro 100 mph and Cabela's guide wear lines. The Cabelas is built better, IMHO, but they are equally as dry, and equally as hot if not in COLD weather. I have a HH...
I am so sorry to hear this. I always enjoyed talking with John, he was always cheerful, and he was a great problem solver the one time I had a unit go "missing" during delivery.
I have one of their ramps. Worth every penny.
And Congrats to Dr. Ed!
We have lots of them on the MS coast, too.
I have an HRCH (500) UH MH "british" dog. There are "british" QAA dogs, GHRCH dogs, MNH dogs. A good dog is a good dog, no matter where the parents got on the boat.
It would totally depend on the attitude of the person approaching me. I have taken screenshots of my judges sheets and emailed them to owners myself, usually when someone I know has a dog that does...
You are one of the good guys in this biz, and I am really sorry you have had to put up with all this. Hope to see you soon.
My audiologist has told me you need to cover the mastoid bone for max reduction, so doubling up with plugs and muffs may be necessary in really loud situations. That is what I do when I teach kids...
I would not worry about color, and look for a breeding with Kenny Girot's dog Vince x appropriate bitch. I have judged Vince in both HT venues, and he can do the work.
Fishduck pays me the same whether I am judging or gunning for "Judge Mrs. GC." Starting to think gunning is the better deal for all those way cool "free shells." :D
Most Wed afternoon's at 5:30 there are a couple of us that train at the intersection of Beach Blvd and Grand Oaks in Pascagoula.
Old Hatchie is a bunch of good folks, and they put on good tests. Contact Johnny Barlow, the HRC Region 5A field rep, and he can get you all the information.
I can count on about 3 fingers the people I know that run every year to qualify for the MN that do NOT hunt. Virtually every one of my buddies that are running Finished/Master are hardcore duck...
Omar has a hysterical letter he showed me at the HRC National a few years ago to him from the AKC saying "There is no market or interest for a non-field trial retriever event. If there were, we...
Mine stay in the house, or where ever we are, most of the time.
