    Ted, you spend a lot of time questioning the reading comprehension of others.

    But, if I'm not mistaken it was you that posted the original thread that had to be corrected. And it was you that was corrected and posted this thread with the first word in the title as "Correction".

    So... Was it your reading comprehension or listening skills that caused you to get the story wrong in the first place?

    Actually, I was given differing information from different members of the RAC. So, neither my reading comprehension nor my listening skills were at fault.

    But, I am delighted that you are so concerned for my well being.

    I get so confused. So you had differing information from different RAC members but you posted anyway? Sounds like a plausible explanation.

    No.

    One person told me version 1. I was asked to post in order to obtain feedback. Then I posted.

    Then I was asked to post a correction. So I did.

    I am not interested in the designated handlers of the past, that is done, a rule change was effected and the result was the owner handler Amateur. I am interested in the present and why a rule change is necessary, as I personally don't see co-ownership being abused. If there is abuse, and it is substantial enough to warrant a rule change, the facts should be on the table.

    Ted's circuit is being over run with pro handler co owners. You would never hear a peep if the co owner never won.

    I hate to raise this issue, but what about a dog co-owned by a significant other? I just looked at the AM entries in our last trial. Five dogs in the AM were owned by non-married couples.

    But are they "exclusive" significant others?

    Let me put this in a way that may be more tactful....the O/H is not being abused...and seeing how this a privately owned public forum,it is not the place to just throw names out with reckless abandon

    It also has to do with perception vs reality...depending on what part of the country you reside and where you stand on the issue

    calling someone out on a forum,especially when that person may be from a different part of the country and you have no idea the real circumstances behind their ownership agreements is foolish and reckless. Thats kind of how rumors get started in the FT game

    Did a re-count. There were 5 dogs owned by couples who are unmarried significant others.
