    Default bottom end

    I know this is a phrase the gets brought up quite a bit....
    there are a lot of new folks coming onto RTF, so I thought it would be nice to have a discussion.....

    What is your idea of 'bottom end' ....

    Paul, we are NOT referring to BEHINDS.

    All I know is bottom end rot is caused from to much to drink.
    Just for the record I have very fine dogs. Some of the best in the whole country....or at least on my own block anyhow.

    It's one of those words that everyone likes to use, but don't know how to put a definition to it. For me, 'bottom' is how hard you can push the dog before he 'hits bottom'. Some dogs have a lot of it and some have very little. The more bottom the better provided the dog is smart on top of it and not just wacky about retrieving.

    thats best I can do for now...
