    Default All I could do was shake my head and laugh

    Ran Gage in a Senior NAHRA test on Sunday. Quartering was excellent as was trailing. Three casts to the blind. He looked like he had all marks memorized. Go bird, no problem but then he fell apart. Had to handle on two marks which, of course, got us dropped. Terrific judges, invited us to run as test dog on the water triple and blind. It was an out of order triple and an angle entry blind; land, running water, swimming water, land. Easily picked up all three marks with no hunting and lined the blind with no whistles or casts.

    I love this game!
