here is the way it went my dog is honoring the 1st bird comes out left to right 40 yrds or so working dog is steady 2nd bird is a live flyer in front about 65 yrds bird hit the ground and before the dog was released he took off with great gusto with whistle blowing and hollering from the handler the dog made the retrieve and delivered to the handler. the working dog was out for breaking. my dog then had to honor again the next dog broke to so dog 3 was up this dog did fine. I was lucky my dog didn't break but he was so hyper I thought he was going to turn inside out. my question is he watched the 2 birds go down and a retrieve to hand so it would seem to me my dog fulfilled his obligation and should have been done after all had my dog broke he would have been out. not complaining just curious.
