    #96 Indi had three great marks but cheated the long water mark...probably took her out of first but she is a finalist and finished without a handle. Way to go Indi!

    Huge congratulations for all who make it to the National Retriever Championship and to survive to the 10th is an incredible feat and hopefully they will all complete the test and be 'finalists'. As an aside, this test is a similar location to the 10th series of the 2008 NRC - the far left bird wasn't there, instead a far right bird was used and more water was taken, but basically very similar. It was bitterly cold that day and a stiff wind was blowing - today the weather Gods were more considerate! All winners - but only one walks away with the blue -wonder who??

    I must commend the RN for making the effort to show each of the Finalists pictures of the dog and handler...nice to put a face with each dog
