    Default Fyi

    Those of us that do or did competitive dogs in any venue are a fairly insignificant number of the population.
    That is probably then only thing that is insignificant about those who do dogs competitively. We do it in many
    forms, from getting a lot of help with our endeavors to receiving very little help. We speak our own language,
    & those who played at the top of the heap know each other quite well, either from personal contact or someone
    we know who knows someone else & we trust their judgment. Those of us who trained mostly without hiring
    outside help can tell from other's posts just what type of dog that person will probably bring to the line.

    People who do dogs at these levels, whether they do it themselves or hire it done, have significant skills that
    separate them from the mainstream of society. Those skills may show up in their vocations or they may show
    up in their avocation, which is in this case, dogs & their love for their canine friends.

    Most people who do dogs have an utmost respect for those who participate in the
    various venues & I emphasize participate.


    On occasion there are those who disrespect members on this forum who have a long & successful history in the
    various venues. For those who disrespected UB on this forum, especially those who did not do competitive dogs,
    I hope the big guy upstairs has something special in mind for you. For those who just showed up & believe you
    have something to offer to anyone on this forum without having any experience in the art of training & keeping
    a competitive dog fit & no interest in doing so you need to consider going to some other forum where you can
    impress others as equally stupid as you.

    The great majority of those who post here did something really well in life, many of us are veterans & proud of
    that, many have very strong families & believe in their own way in a supreme being, many care for our country
    & what they can do for it & do not see it going down that path. We are mostly, reasonably successful, & quite
    comfortable in that accomplishment. I do not believe we need to agree to get along, disagreement can be quite
    respectful.

    Today I'm going to do something I said I would never do - I'm going to place 2 people on Ignore - one because of
    his disrespect for UB & the other because, along with appearing to be from someplace on the very left side of the
    Bell Curve he has forgotten what the forum is for, if he ever had the intelligence to know what it was for. I don't
    believe he has an opinion worthy of one's time, because in his case it's all opinion without knowledge.

    Everyone have a nice day & remember the purpose of this forum.

    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

    A nicely-phrased, well-written and wholly rational post by Marvin S.

    Marvin, well said.

    as for you Gooser. For some reason I just don't think Marvin is talking to about you.

    Apparently I missed something. I barely have enough time these days for more than a quick peek at POTUS now and then.
