    That's pretty much my deduction, Breck - and was what decided it for me in trying to play with an underdog. Our Canadian chums would be au courant about any more recent infusion of British blood in...

    Breck, believing Ron's dog has a lot of the same pedigree as mine; is he still running it? Gotta think Professor Kenny's derby list (and QAA) dog was of a higher-octane origin but he can always...

    "Labs are a different story" because most everybody running American field trials enters them with the same old story - American-bred (and trained) Labs.

    This, indeed. To his detractors here, of whom there were a few, he would never have let fly with "to hell with 'em," but I bet he might say now "to heaven with 'em" - which would mean reconnecting...

    Good deal, especially because if you'd gone to E-Z Rotational Molder for your bumpers, you might've gotten a better price, but it's my understanding that the doggie dental insurance policy on their...
