    I guess that Screaming mallard flyer given the 6 shot salute doesn’t count as a duck call...

Besides, whens the last time , hunting in the swamp or goose field, you ran a blind past two people in white jackets in lawn chairs reading a newspaper??

    You can't be serious. Field trials are about testing desire, trainability, marking, lining ability and courage to the max. There's a reason most hunt tests folks buy pups from field trial pedigrees. Most field trial dogs I know could pass upper level hunt tests with about 10 minutes of training to that end, and almost all the successful ones I know make fantastic hunting dogs.

    P.S. upon further research the most titled dog in Labrador history isn't a trial dog at all...but I guess we can't include Remi in this discussion cause she lacks the elusive "N" in her alphabet.

    I vote for Lassie. Also, the old dog on Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey.

    LOL. To steal and mangle a great John Wayne line: They are all tough and even tougher when you can't handle and your dog isn't any good

    I'll bite and proclaim that the best in the past couple of years is Cane and open the floor for debate.
