    Default Passed from the Past

    I hope Dennis Voigt doesn't mind my posting this as it came from a Retrievers Online issue. These are quotes from 30 years ago:

    Overheard from judges:

    I don't believe I've ever seen a dog hunt so hard.

    Meaning:

    ...or so long.

    He seems to be a little out of control.

    Meaning:

    Let me know when he decides to come back.

    Your dog shows a lot of promise

    Meaning:

    Why don't you get someone to train him?

    He seems very steady.

    Meaning:

    If he refuses to retrieve once more, you're out.

    I think you'd better handle him.

    Meaning:

    Now we've laughed at your dog-let's laugh at you.

    I'm sorry to lose this dog.

    Meaning:

    You should have called him in before he went completely out of sight.

    Thank you M, If you had not said it was from 30 years ago I would have figure they were talking about Merlin. He has gotten better with age.

    They left out, "That sure is a purty dawg."

    I had a judge lean over the holding blind before Kate & I came to line in an AKC Senior test and say, "Well, now. Isn't that pretty?"

    When he gave me my ribbon at the end of the day I said, "She looks flat out gorgeous now".

    When I was given that "compliment", it didn't involve a ribbon .
