    It's killing me that I'm not there. I know my dog ran D late this morning, but haven't texted my pro yet to see how it went. He's got 7 others to run so I figure I'll give him the courtesy of focusing on his other dogs before i see how things went. I'm hoping we're in the game come Wednesday so I can make the trip.

    Well my dog ran Flt D yesterday afternoon. Had "2" count them TWO no birds on the flyer. Picked up the Go Bird and the Flyer and just couldn't get the 1st bird down. Not the way I wanted her to retire from the game. But it is a game.

    Apparently some of the natural cover has a strong odor which has complicated finding the bird for some dogs.

    The cover is thick ragweed. The seed pods look and feel like oregano and have a not unpleasant order like lavender. It's not as strong as sagebrush but apparently does play havoc w/ the dogs' sense of smell. You'll excuse me if I say the goldens, in general, seemed to have a better time using their nose than the labs. Many dogs worked or were handled all around the flyer and could not seem to nose it.

    The interview with Dan Kielty of Marks-A-Lot is dead on. He ran 9 dogs in flight D so he knows it well!
