    Blog notes indicate that #56 Ali just did one heck of a 2 whistle blind, all factors considered. And Dr. Ed's Holland in 4 whistles, good luck all.

    How will the 6th be judged other than keyhole? Damn near erry dog did it, some with more whistles than others. Is there a cutoff for total # of whistles at the National?

    Also, keep in mind that in some cases only judges can truly see all the work a dog does on a test. The "Blog" doesn't get special privileges, as far as I know, in getting a better position to observe than the gallery, so they are just another spectator - albeit they probably have the best seat in that house.

    As was noted in the commentary during an earlier blind, counting whistles is not something that should matter. It appears to be the way the "Blog" is choosing to describe the individual work on a blind, but it really doesn't tell you much...in my opinion. Both Dr Ed and Ted Shih articulated this earlier in the note string. Scroll back a few pages....

    It wouldn't be unusual/unprecedented for a 6th series landblind to lose only one or two dogs...or no dogs.

    Important question Anyone know when the National Pick em will be updated to reflect the 5th series? It's the only lottery I play because I can't lose any money on it!

    I'm sure they have went home by now but was wondering how often it is updated when the series ends earlier in the day.
