    Heck Bob,
    That's not bad at all. When my oldest dog was a pup, he would literally go over the top of the holding blind, tearing the whole thing down...

    That happened to me once, at a test! Shoulda seen the looks I got from the judges and heard the laughs from the gallery!

    Do you listen to God as well as your dog listens to you? Can God run "Blinds" with you?

    Me too! I caught NutCase in mid air as she was sailing over the top of the holding blind in a derby. She won it. I've encouraged it ever since.

    This is a mellower moment.We're trying to narrow the "blind climbs"down to only happen at hunt tests with big galleries.
