    Folks, I quit even reading this forum for the longest time because of folks' inability to accept reality. I can see it hasn't changed any. Unfortunately, I've found folks are not any better in...

    Marking was never an issue with this dog. You can ask anyone who trained with her.
  3. You can call BS all you want. It did happen. ...

    You can call BS all you want. It did happen. That's the truth and I'm sticking to it. Unfortunately, it's not going to change just because you don't believe it.

    There's a lot of things in this...

    Does it really matter? We are talking about one isolated test in which the others do not matter. If you fail a test for one reason, does that mean you automatically fail the next for that same...

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but it is completely true. I only wish it were complete BS, but it's sadly not. I don't believe in making up BS on a forum just to waste everyone's time. I have much...

    Flat buckle collar. When lead was removed, it was tossed behind us per judges' instructions in the briefing- yes, I asked about this specifically as certain judge's have certain preferences.

    I...

    Ok, let me put this way...There was no handler errors (i.e. no training/corrections, no talking before judge's release, etc.) and there were no dog errors (i.e. no breaking, creeping, etc.). Dog was...
  8. I don't know how the dog could fail for another...

    I don't know how the dog could fail for another reason when it was the first mark of the day- and, no, there was not a handler error. Nice try.;)
  9. No, it wasn't. They're response was "Oh, that's...

    No, it wasn't. They're response was "Oh, that's too bad..." It even took the throwers about 5-10 minutes to get the bird as a pick up dog was out of the question. They eventually found a really...
  10. For those of you interested: No, this is not...

    For those of you interested:

    No, this is not an internet game. That is a scenario that did happen to us. Granted, it wasn't the scenario that was supposed to happen, but it happened none the...

    You've done plenty of "wanking" of your own about Conformation in this thread. I guess it's time for you to put your "big boy" undies on and enter a Conformation show or a Conformation Certificate...

    I voted No. However, I really dislike the "caretaker" word as it is the label that AR groups are using to slowly wittle away our rights. We are Owners and the minute we let that slide is the minute...

    Just because you've never seen it, doesn't negate the fact that it happens...And there goes the "train, don't complain" to let it all slide again.;)
  14. I agree with you. However, IMHO, I think where...

    I agree with you. However, IMHO, I think where it all went south is when the LRC set the disqualifications in the height. The standard says Labradors are "medium" sized dogs. I can't think of any...

    So sorry for your loss. You and your family & friends have my best thoughts & prayers.

    I'm not going to say where or what tests they were. I don't believe in throwing folks under the bus like some I have seen here.

    I never said I believed a Junior test should be only 40 yards on...

    Yes, I have entered HTs- I've passed some and failed some just like everyone else. Yes, I've read the standards and I reread them on a regular basis- which I think is more than some judges do.

    Majors are a numbers thing only. They have nothing to do with the quality of the dogs. However, BOB will almost always be awarded at every show, so plenty of Labs have the opportunity for that...

    Good for you! I'm glad you had the courage to attend and go through with it! Congrats on your certificate! Did you stick around to watch what those judges put up the next day?

    Having said that,...
  20. First, you didn't ask me before and, if you did,...

    First, you didn't ask me before and, if you did, it wasn't to me directly. Second, you don't have to be entered to observe. That said, I've seen various things at all levels- too numerous to name...
  21. I've seen plenty of instances in the field where...

    I've seen plenty of instances in the field where those standards have been clearly ignored as well. Judges have been setting up tests that are "outside the box" for years supposedly because of...

    Actually, I think even BIS wins are counted for Group rankings, but I agree 110% on the rest of it, Nicole.:)
  23. Anne & Julie, I did see that program for the...

    Anne & Julie, I did see that program for the National this year and I do think it's a fantastic step in the right direction. However, what I was aluding to is a more permanant type of recognition...

    Very nice dogs! Congrats on your success!

    I would really relish the idea of the LRC having Versatility, ROM, etc programs like so many other breeds do. However, sadly, the LRC seems asleep at...

    If this is how you really feel, why such venum in your previous post? If it's not about an "anti-show dog" sentiment, you could've fooled me with that post. Having said that, I do appreciate the...
