    Julie, with this crowd, you have to pre-appologize if you say the sky is blue. That is sure to offend someone and start a firestorm.

    If Gib would have just commented about his dog's accomplishments I would have been appreciative, as I am of Buzz's comments regard Dennis.

    I've seen those DD comps, and some (not all) of the dogs appeared 'less than steady', in anticipation of the big event. Is it not legit to ask how this affects marking ability (or steadieness?)
    the majority of dogs that are not HT/FT dogs are often very unsteady, some totally out of control. drives me crazy, but its their dog.

    the people with trained retrievers never have an issue with steadiness. its not like we go up there and just do a whole weekend of out of control fun bumpers. we instill and expect the same level of OB as we would anywhere.

    My dogs are as steady on the dock as in the blind. It's all a matter of obedience.

    I was just trying to get him to talk about dogs for a change.

    DG, that is pretty impressive that the handlers got all six of their black dogs to jump so close to each other!
