    or when they say the dog traveled toward the holding blind, did it make one think the dog was coming back to the line ?
    Either way it's ungrammatical...

    Twelve back to the tenth.

    I know Slider is back. Ali is not.

    Too bad for Ali. Wonder what the saving grace for Slider was?

    A very wise person told me many years ago that at a National the mistake you make is not as important as when you make it, in the case of Slider and Holland both handled in series when dropping dogs was not that important. Also the farther away your mistake happened the less impact it tends to have.

    Congratulations to Slider, Tubb, Dottie, and Holland all in their first National Championship Stake, and all who we in Texas run against every weekend.

    Holland and Dottie are littermates (thank you Kweezy) back for the 10th series in their first National Championship Stake.

    Well said... I am living proof of that one with mistakes in the 8th and 9th at a couple of Nat'ls and that got me gone...

    Congrats Dr. Ed, good luck in the 10th.
