    Definitely a yes on all of those, for sure. Seeing nothing but fat roosters and greenheads all week long can definitely spoil a dog (and a gunner).

    Great looking site, I like it a lot. Very nice use of pictures (love the one of Tank as a pup, on the "Tank" page, very serious looking pup!) and easy to navigate.

    Yep, if you send them an e-mail and they recieve it before the test closes, they'll process it in the morning and return your money (minus the EE fee), but they need to get it before closing time.

    What would you pay to enter a Master test? While it...

    Pete,

    Just to be clear, when you hold like this, is your index finger pointed to the head or the tail? Sounds like it's pointing to the head. Anxious to try it this way, makes a lot of sense.

    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...

    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...
