    While at first it looked like the pup was going to cheat the water, at the last instance it took a nice line into the water, and even came back along the same line. :)

    Fastest? Maybe. Most direct? Not so sure.

    If you take Hiway 20, from Ontario, ID, through Bend, OR, then 126 down to Eugene, it shaves 100 miles off the trip. However, it probably doesn't save...

    Sorry for your loss.

    As to your question, you've gotten some great feedback. Here's another way to look at it. Do you want to get to 78 and look back at 10 years without a dog? I know I...

    It gets people chasing a MN qualification to run in your Master test. (while some think that brings in too many dogs, there's also problems with too few)

    It lets your club vote on MN rules...

    First off, I don't think an individual can put on an AKC Hunt Test. It has to be through an AKC club. Of course, like DoubleHaul said, it probably wouldn't be too hard to find a club willing to...

    I'll take a third chioce, "great idea". A layer of fresh snow is like crack to my dog. It's great. The only caveat would be that snow hides things, and if there's anything in the field to be...

    Yeah, and if I recall correctly, it happens again around 18 months. I'm on board with HNTFSH, revisit obedience and hold the standard on everything. Never let him go through the door first.
