Well, I am wondering, along with the other humorous thread of being given the boot with righteousness, what about those who have been given the gift by the judge when you KNOW you should have been toast?
I was running a Q last year with a HUGE hideous hunt. Well do you just know that they were quite generous and let me back. So then when we did the blind, I stopped her in the perfect place and gave an atrocious cast and she took it! Yikes! So after stopping her and she did a loopy sit, I lost her. So then we had one of those fights that they tell you never to give up on. At the end of the disastrous blind I turned around and asked them, "How was that for a fine job?" and everyone busted up laughing.
Of course knowing I was most certainly OUT, off I went to make some tailgate party food. Soon, someone was banging on my camper yelling at me to get my dog ready. "WTF? Are you serious?" I certainly didn't want to bloody any more eyes with our fine skilz, but did as I was told, ears burning with embarassment.
HAHAHAHA! She was such a genious that we got an RJ when we should have been out. Every time I look at that ribbon I remember the first 2 series vividly. I will most certainly remember not to give THAT cast again! Well, in that type of situation anyhow....
