    Like I said, it is still in discussion how to get these out to the retriever community. Possibly for free online viewing.

    Imagine seeing 2xNFC King Buck running with John Olin handling -- it is on there! The dog who was on the federal waterfowl stamp; The guy who owned Winchester ammunition.

    Watch for announcements.

    Drive is the manifestation of Desire, and measured in Style.
    Thank you judges who score Style, you are preserving Desire!

    The other day I was flipping through a couple of old books James Lamb Free and one by Ralf W Coykendall Jr. The former had pictures of Nationals and the latter had a picture of King Buck. Sure would be great to see this dog in motion. The history and progress of the sport should be preserved for future generations.

    Man oh man, talk about a wild ride to watch the cream of the crop from that era perform when before they have only been spoken of or seen in pictures. Truely a great find and I would looooove to see it!!....

    Times have changed a lot since then I don't think the name of dog number 5 under the amateur trained&handled in the FT news would be socially acceptable now a days.

    Ad for 1956 National.
    It was impossible, so it took a little longer to accomplish.
