    Default my duty is done....

    .....i voted today, so now i can do something far far more important on Nov 2 - pick up my new puppy!!!!!

    by the way - master pass #3 this past weekend - by far my boy's best test performance yet. if it had been judged as a field trial he would have won hands down. the 3 blinds were 1, 2, and 2 whistles with less than 10 ft offline. nailed all the marks - except the last one, but 3 clean whistles had it in his mouth. only 8 of 25 ran the first series clean, then only 3 ran the 2nd clean, and one of those had a handle in series one. so only one dog had zero handles, but it was very very piggish and slow, zero style or ambition, and 4-8 whistle blinds run at a fast walk. totally does the work, just not a joy to watch.



    so thats 3 for 6, and 2 of the last 3. not a bad best buddy at all......





    freaking awesome. if only i could count on this same performance! but last week we went out in the second series, so we are human and canine afterall...

    Better watch out....you know, talking puppies on the POTUS. Some may get their dander up!

    Congrats on the pup and the pass.

    Good looking dog.... but, that's a mighty BIG IF!
    I would love to read about you Field Trial handling experience.
    Handle him in an Am or Open and then make that statement.

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    um, Franco - i will be polite and tell you to F yourself.

    did i say he would win any FT?????? did i????? ummm, i'll answer that for you - NO.

    i have never run a FT, but i have watched a few and even the NFC.

    i SAID - quote - "if it had been judged as a field trial he would have won hands down." - that means that IF this particular event was a field trial - WITH the same field - we would have won. MEANING that our run was far cleaner than everyone else's.

    do you not see the difference? why is that so hard to understand?

    you are giving coon asses a bad name, and i count many of your brethren amongst my best friends having roughnecked alongside many.

    i photographed and /or watched the entire event. i know what i talk about.

    thank you so much for your gross misinterpretation.

    calming down after Francos assholyness - no - no name picked out. we have a theme and we try to get the whole family's input, even though the kids are out of the house. we like Texas town names (hence Brady), "Shiner" is the frontrunner with the wife and daughter, but try saying "sit Shiner" under stress. i can see a walkup.....the gun fire, and i say "Shit Siner!" lol


    i also like "Dalton"

    this pup is sired by Kerrybrooks Vince (Kenny G - RTF'er) - number 49 as CH/MH, from a bitch from, Brady's breeder (www.bearcreekonthebayou.com)

    decidedly yellow!!!!!

    Nope. Our game is grouse on the west 40 and ducks on the river.
