    The judges have been very generous on callbacks. I have a hard time believing that they are going to cut deep on a land blind. I have no inside information, but think that they will move to tough water marks, which will give them sufficient answers to cut to fighting weight.
    Competition does not build character - It reveals it.

    Ted is right on, might lose 10 dogs based on poor LB plus previous mistakes, the field trial starts in the 7th series, water marks next

    She was in trouble before the PB.
    That Is aboulutely correct. My dog stopped on a dime on his whitsles & I was step casting him to the left with big casts and he could not see me. It was also very dark where we were casting and dogs had to look up a big hillside. I had to resort to verbals... not good at a crucial point and a fast dog. I like to think I have a very good blind dog... unfortunate.

    Sorry to hear that, Barb. It is a shame that Ten didn't get to show off on the big water series he is so good at.

    Talking about the pick em and changing in a hurry! Lost two and my tie breaker on that blind!



    Like my old friend and veterinarian, Clyde Odom would say when asked why the dogs would do something they should't ha e done... "They're just dawgs"

    RIP Doc Odom

    Thanks guys! I'm hearing no big water anyway; ) seen no punch birds; )

    Looking at the dogs dropped I'm thinking running order was a factor once again for this group!! I know Bill Barstow ran in front 1 dog in front of me had to fight like hell for his dog to see him and was using verbals... but was able to get it done.
