    Copterdoc, there is no hostility here at all. How is Juice a "washout"?
    Did he have to post an ad?

    It could mean a number of things.
    Maybe, it's an inside dog, and it's farts are peeling the paint off the walls.

    If you keep your dogs outside, or have your interior walls painted with Sherwin Williams fart resistant paint, that dog could be just what you are looking for. At a bargain price to boot.

    Thanks Sharon, you hit the nail on the head.
    Spag, that 12K doesn't include any of my time or expenses related to going to train with the pro and my pup.(motel,vehicle exp,gas,food).
    It takes alot of CHEESE and or time to try and play the Field Trial game at the highest level.

    Because the dog is not good enough in FT does not mean the dog is a complete wash out. Only at the game you want to play is the dog not suitable. But probably a good dog.

    And there are always extenuating circumstances or reasons a person has to sell their dog. That is personal.

    I don't think the term washout applies and I think Copter dog is fishing for ....!! IMO

    A dog that sells for 6 figures is definitely not a washout.

    What about 5 figures? If I sell a dog for $20k, is it a washout? Would it make a difference if the dog was 4 versus, say 1.5 years old?

    Does it really make a difference whether I advertise the dog or not? I get Copterdoc's point that many good dogs don't sell via ads, but if I have a dog and want to get the best possible price, shouldn't I get an ad? Does that really reflect on the dog?

    Do you really think that there is a point other than stirring the pot?

    His cynical point is that the cream of the crop are sold under the table, with handshake deals and money exchanged in brown paper bags that the average Joe just doesn't know about, and a dog that would never be offered to him.



    Now, back to your regularly scheduled poking of the skunk.
