    You might not drop the dog Glen, but I bet it leaves a bad impression. It's a tough break, but I don't know what you can do about it. I believe what you said, in bold, mitigates any whistle change....

    What paperwork Stan? I've been buying birds for years, and I've never even thought of asking for anything from him to prove where they came from. And he's never offered.

    Not sure I want to run wire where a dog could run through it and rip it out of my release's anyway.
    It is interesting that there's enough power to do that if you wanted to though.

    12 weeks old and look at that beautiful Hold. Did you take the rope off on purpose? I did that when my pups were that age, rope kept tripping them up.
