    Thanks for your reply Dr. Ed. I must have missed Holland's handle.. Now that the dogs have made it to the tenth, do they start with a "clean slate" so to speak? Or were the one's with handles early on still here in case the "clean" ones fail? I know it's all up to the 3 people sitting behind the line, just wondering how much those that handled have to overcome.

    Meanwhile......Go Indy, Windy, Slider, Guide and Holland! (not all my picks, just wish they were)

    The 10th test - another humdinger. This year's National is full of humdingers! And definitely, congratulations Dr. Ed on Dottie and Holland. Great names, too. Dot Come, indeed.

    Those of us behind wish we started we a clean slate but unless a tenth series catastrophe occurs there are probably 3 or 4 dogs in contention, we are just very happy and humbled to be a part of the finale!

    Being a finalist in a National is a very momentous accomplishment. To be an amateur and be a finalist in both Nationals in a single calendar year is amazing, way to go Lauren and Slider!....not wishing to jinx, the dogs still have to retrieve all the birds in the tenth

    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
