    Test is eating the dogs up (as expected).
    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.

    You have no idea how big a deal it is that he's doing what he's doing with his iPad......he definitely shouldn't quit his day job.

    I certainly agree with Ed, rarely is a no bird helpful. The only thing that might be of benefit in this scenario is for the early dogs: by having to drop back 6, there's more opportunity to get a little more scent laid down.

    This series is bloody so far - 4 pick ups, 3 handles, 1 double handle and no-birds galore. Feel bad for Tie and Moses who got a 2nd no-bird.

    I don't follow nationals of any type, but having that blog with interview videos and up-to-date information on each dog's run (as well as one can have it) is way cool. Nice setup.

    A little tighter GE angle: LRG pulled in a little, RR a bit wider. Same disclaimer applies.

    From reading the RN blog, it looks like they have started picking up the long left retired before the long right retired? Is this correct?

    Very nice info on the Blog. Just wondering, can they pick the marks up in any order. What is the order??
