    Torg it was nice to meet you in Iowa this week. I own a dog named Ely that is a GRHRCH, UH, QAA and a member of the Master National hall of fame. He has a natural point and is a great pointing lab. In fact Dale pushed me hard to title him in ALPA. I have discouraged the pointing thing from the very beginning and still had trouble getting him off point for his title run at the Grand. I consider him to be one of the most accomplished HT dogs around and the Grand title is the hardest HT title to get IMHO. Rooster is a nice dog and you can be proud of what he did in Iowa.

    Heard a lot about Ely. He is also very handsome. Sister-in-law has one of his pups that she thinks highly of. We are still proud of Rooster, Ronnie Lee his handler said he did a nice job the entire test, even lining a tough blind. We love the pointing aspect but we wish Rooster had been a flusher for a moment. Luck was with us last year because we had a nervous bird that flushed when he went on point.

    Man that is heartbreaking - yet so awesome at the same time. Pardon the dumb question, but I suppose the dog has to flush the bird, which never happened. Once the dog locates the bird, is there a certain amount of time until allowed until the dog has to flush it? Does he have a "flush command", or does he always wait for the handler to flush the bird?
