At a Master test, terrible weather rainy cold with wind in your face, big open water blind then climb out and fade right to pick up the bird, and if your dog went left it was out of sight- most people were either stopping their dogs as they came out of the water or ended up losing them. I sent my dog and waited out the swim, watched her climb out of the water and run straight. I knew I had locked her on good to the line I wanted her to take and was confident she would fade right. The judges, however, were not so sure. Judge 1- "You know it's okay to blow the whistle". A second of silence then Judge 2- "You wont be dropped for blowing a whistle". More silence, then I hear a judge hiss "Blow the whistle!". I did not blow it and my dog did fade right and ended up one-whistling the blind. The judges were all smiles as I left the line.
