    Hey my Sandwiches are very important to me, when I'm down in my pit listening to classic rock...I take it you don't like peanut butter

    Still while delicious my PB&J is not the main point. Hunt test or not my dog better hold my birds until I choose to take them as he's trained to do, if I'm blowing away incoming birds while he's returning from a retrieve, he needs to be able to get out of my decoys, sit down, and mark the other birds, all with that one bird in his mouth until the chaos ends and I have time to take it from him. That's what is meant by deliver to hand, put the bird in my hand, regardless of the time it takes for me to get around to taking it from you. If that one bird happens to be a cripple, which escapes and swims half-way across the pond because my dog dropped it, rather than held it, while I was busy blasting an in coming flight. I then have to spend more time directing the dog to get a bird, he'd already retrieved, if we can find it at all. I'm not really pleased with a companion hunting dog if I have to run out of the blind everytime a retrieve is made because he can't hold on to a bird.

    But your demanding YOUR standard,and not reading the rules.

    you would rather towel the rules to fit YOUR standard.

    Dont make the standard anymore than what it is.
    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

    I once ran a master test where the honor dog had to hold a bird. Hows that for a standard
