    He probably heard the rumors about him and Sondra.


    Just kidding, He still runs trials but just as often Mark Madore (Jim's assistant) runs the dogs and does a fine job of it.
    Where am I going and why am I in this handbasket?

    I knew it!!! Sondra how do you support your habit???

    A quick look on entryexpress would answer anyones questions about pro's and if they're still running.

    I used to train with him a long time ago when I lived in Washington but hadn't seen his name at the Nationals lately. Thanks.

    There's a lot of topshelf pro's that aren't at the nationals every year. Google is your friend along with entryexpress.net

    Do you get the Retriever News? He ran two of the top ten open dogs last year. He's still breathing and he's still training at McKenna Kennels.

    I'm glad he's still running because I always liked him. I did an internet search and the latest info on him was a win in a FT in 2004. I guess he doesn't have a website or email acct. If anyone sees him tell him I said hello. He may or may not remember me as I was last at his place in 1986. He was the one that really got me hooked on retriever training. Which since retiring from engineering I have been doing as a second career. I'm Wayne Nutt.
