    Well, never mind. I've just been reminded that weimaraners are eligible to run AKC HTs. (This came about after my story above occurred.) So that gray dog with the yellow eyes, high-set ears, thin...

    Did I say that? No, I did not. But I will say that I've never seen a so-called "silver" that could pass a HT. There might be some out there that can do the work, but I've not seen one. And I sure as...

    I don't prejudge dogs based on their color, or breed. (See my pic in the avatar if you wonder why.) But, esp at lower levels of HTs you can tell a lot about a dog while it's still in the holding...

    It's not about the color. It's about whether the dog is truly a full blooded labrador. And looks like a labrador. And, more important, has the talents one would expect from a full blooded labrador or...

    Had a fellow bring a "silver" to the line at a junior HT few years ago. My co-judge's eyes 'bout popped out of her skull. "No worries" I said. "That weim won't make it to the next series." And it...

    This.

    It's not difficult. I don't let my dogs near other dogs and I don't let other dogs near mine. And if there is any sign of aggression, noise or posturing the correction is instantaneous and...

    Guinea fowl are supposed to big tick consumers, are not so noisy and easier keepers than chickens. At least they're smarter about hawks and other predators. Ticks love damp areas and piles of leaves....

    Ditto on the let pup work it out for now. Nix the play time and use BWBs (big white bumpers) for him to focus on. If he's like my pup the splashy thing stops once he gets focused on the retrieve and...

    Do check with your airline. Most have limits on how many pets are allowed in each cabin. While not likely you could find, w/o an advance reservation for the pup, that there's no "room." Have fun. We...

    And use his name as release command for other things. Our pups are trained, easily, to sit at an open door and go through only as called by name. Lots of uses for getting pup used to his name.

    Ya got me. But an indent short memory bird in heavy cover, after a juicy flyer in a different zip code, can play havoc with a young senior level dog as well. My point being that walk-ups don't have...

    I would not call a short indent bird in thick cover, last retrieve of an otherwise big triple, a "fairly lame memory bird?" My two pups have passed 14 of 16 tests this year. In all they have handled...
