    Like I said before, I would train the dog and hunt with it... But hunting is about enjoying the outdoors and nature. What would be enjoyable about having to look at or listen to Obama for any length of time when you could be gazing out over your spread at the natural scenery without those big ears in the way? (Obama's, not the dogs)

    The sight of John Kerry in Hun-ting clothes was bad enough. Can you imagine the preezy? Do they make Mom waders?

    It would be an honor to train the president's dog no matter what party affiliation. I would have to check with the AKC to make sure it didn't make me a pro, and if they said I could and keep my Amateur status, I would do it in a heartbeat!

    Your qualifications to train the POTUS pwd & the POTUS's qualifications to be POTUS are probably quite similar. Sort of like folks thinking someone is a Helluva Dog person creates a lot of latitude on both ends. You do realize that if you can't get the dog to FF, do a swimby & "Seat on a Duck" you will end up in G Bay, at least until it closes .

    I assure you if he leaves him with me for couple years...I can train Sonny and he will be doing Qualifing blinds....God will have more of a say on his marking and memory! Obviously you know nothing about me. How many FC and AFC do you have or have had and then maybe we can talk and if you have had some maybe we can talk.

    NOW YOU HAVE CROSSED THE LINE....I have no idea what your personal beef is with RK, but you have been stalking his posts for some time, and since Stan wont report it then I will...now on top of that you demean the training of his dog? That is so far out of bounds and loses you all credibility, you should be ashamed of yourself, solve your personal issues somewhere else, not the RTF

    You know,
    I start a fun hyperskeptical thread I hope leads to tails of great closed no access government grounds. And you fricken 12 year old girls have to ruin it. Who can train better? Who can train at all? Who has made more FC/AFC dogs? Who is getting picked on? Who's Brother has won more trials? You are ALL a bunch of 12 year old girls. My Grandfather would say "Put you all in a feed bag and shake it up and not a one of yous would come out on top!!!!!!"
    You guys, all of yoos sould walk to your bathroom mirror and take a good hard look.
    You all bum me out!
