    From the talented Jean Wu.... it's a photo of her sketch so her artwork isn't reproduced as well as it deserves. But it's another perspective of the test to consider, while the rest of us sit in our offices, fending off the fiscal cliff:

    Wow those two Middle marks would give an average dog an Anxiety attack 385 and 398 yard marks running into each other theoretically the dog could probably take the same route out to both birds

    Wow, sorry to read about #43 - Ed Forry picked her up because she was too hot from hunting the other birds...what a heart break for those cheering Piper on....good for Ed on doing what was right for the dog.

    Question for you Mary Lynn, I see you have a qaa dog and a HRCH dog, did you run and handle these dogs? Just curious as I find it odd that you don't know about picking marks up however you want nor did you know what a layout blind was.


    Just curious. Usually folks running at those levels would know those things.

    I've never been to a hunt test where a layout blind was used. Sometimes judges specific an order and mostly they don't.

    This would not be for marks in an AKC retriever hunting test or field trial.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
