    If I remember correctly, he lost Cane at the end of the water blind.

    Actually found it on my phone,
    "Cane had 3 whistles to the land bridge. 4 to enter the big water. 3 whistles while swimming to the point then got out of the water on the right shore and all of sudden appeared at the bird."

    I am happy with the blog this year. For the most part seems to paint a decent picture for us at home. One thing I really like is the interviews that they are doing with handlers and posting the video. I hope we can see more video as the week goes on.

    The coverage gets better and better, year to year.

    But we are still behind the technology curve. The technology exists to be streaming the event online, and even provide coverage announcers if they wanted.

    Imagine being able to watch every dog run from a camera mounted high up behind the line.

    Imagine Retriever News charging money for the access.

    I think the boat is the black object to the right in the picture??? Looks like it is laying upside down in the grass, maybe???

    From my perspective on the line today, the boat is slightly off line to the right if the dog ran a chalk line to the right bird. Sure looks cool though!
