    Are we trying to grow FT's or restrain growth? If we are trying to grow the sport, this is the keystone event. The Super Bowl, World Series of of the retriever world. Folks want to read, see and hear everything they can about it. Feedback that is not a glowing compliment to a particular person is not necessarily an insult or criticism as some want to take it... Just friendly reminders that lots of folks out here in the dog world that can't be at the National want to know what's going on and are hanging on to their computers. We have all become hooked to our iPads, phones etc... We are used to instant info. The retriever world is catching up... But slowly.

    PS... The ladies actually doing the blog are doing a great job with what they have to work with.

    Just one mans opinion.

    Or we could just wait for the next issue of the Retriever News to read about it

    Tough break for #16 Mercy. She was the first (only?) dog to complete the original 9th before it was scrapped - and from my perspective did a nice job - then stumbled on the new set-up. It was a great experience to watch these talented teams. Congrats to all who qualified and esp to those who made it to the 10th. Sorry we could not stay to watch the final.

    Does anyone know what REV dog 61 did in the 9th? I know he did the set up but there was no summary on the blog about his run.

    Thanks

    Since I started following in 2006, the coverage has gotten poorer. No video, no commentary allowed anywhere but on the sanctioned blog, no photos except those originating from "approved" NRC sources, (and sorry Bon, if Cooper Black is open to any would be spectators and the public, photographers can not be forbidden to take or display any photos taken). On top of that, in the last couple of years the ladies on the blog team have done a great job and timely, . . . until the last few series. As the field is narrowed down, the real time news and info stops. Somehow, info is being stifled. For what purpose, by whom, I do not know. All I know is watching these events via internet is about as close as I will ever get to the real thing. All this protectionism does nothing to build interest in the game.

    Thanks Charlotte, the notes I can't find were for Marley #45 after she got a no-bird in the 9th. I remember her when she was young and with Paul before she was sold - neat dog and appears to have a very nice National going.

    Marley was here once when she was a pup. Very cool dog. Appears to have just handled.
