    I always treat it like I would treat my own child. Hydrogen peroxide, neosporin, gauze pad and wrap very heavily with tape. The last time my "fire breather" cut her pad I had to add a sock that...

    Great point Don. This could not be more true. You have to train your dog to hunt just as you train to run hunt test or field trials. When you take the dog hunting you don't always have to shoot, but...

    I also don't have the luxury of traveling all over the place to avoid certain judges, so I'll run under anyone. We usually have master A, B, C and D flights so it's luck of the draw with judges.

    My dog saves me more times than none. In fact, I've had a few guys in the peanut gallery tell me I need to learn from my dog, (in a joking way). It's all about having fun to me.
