    I am placing my vote like the scratch fee, (don't think it is fair to make it retroactive, should start on events from day implemented on). Think the ten dollar waiting list fee is a little steep....

    Isn't EE owned by "Retriever News" which is owned and sponsored by the National Retriever club and the National Amateur Retriever Club. At least that's how I read it on page 4 of the Dec. copy of...

    Liked your story, reminded me of my old girl since gone. Hers was the red rubber band like thing around salami. Never got in the garbage, but put one of those in there, even buried at the bottom...

    So you can't respect or trust someone that cares enough to do all the test, so they can breed without any genetic problems. Then spends a lot of time and money to test and or trial their dog to show...

    I guess my question is why. Why are you so opposed to limited registrations that can be changed to full. You say I'm a control freak by having a set of standards for clients before I sell them a pup....

    Your right Copterdoc, and making it illegal to rob a bank doesn't stop some from doing it. So if we stopped making robbing banks against the law, many would still not do it, due to their moral...

    Mr. Lash no one said you where irresponsible. And I'm assuming from your post, that if you plan on breeding your dog, you will be a responsible breeder. So then you would get the health...

    I see ads galore with, (she /he is the best hunting dog I've ever seen) That may be true but, maybe they haven't seen very many mallard munchers. And I know, I think my girl is fantastic, but really...

    I've thought about this a lot too. With a planned litter, hopefully coming up this spring, my thoughts are to go limited reg., to be moved to full when the dog has, one gotten it health clearances,...
