    If FF was done solely for the purpose of "teaching" the dog to retrieve you might have a point but it's not.

    He certainly misses no ground but it doesn't seem like he's acting at all birdy. More like he has been taught to cover so much ground in such small increments that he puts up anything in that space....

    It will probably go away as the dog gets older. Like little kids, the worlds kind of a scary place when it gets dark. They soon figure it out.

    Had a pleasant conversation with Mr McCracken today. He's got me on the right track I believe. Always fun talking dogs.

    Well Eric I was certainly not under the illusion that I was "Special". Obviously a form letter but it does show that the AKC felt at least a little heat from the folks. That letter is as close as...

    In response to an e-mail sent by me. Apparently they were not talking to us. LOL

    Kind of sounds easy but maybe not. There is something going on with the original owner that has led to him wanting to give up his dog after a year and a half. Usually folks that are not suited to a...
