    And to think I gave a perfectly good copy of that book to a girlfriend I was with for only a few months...
    (before my current wife) Haven't spoken to her since 1998... Think she would give it back to me if I called??

    That's funny. I just got my copy in the mail today...found it on that auction site for one third of a trial entry fee.

    Does anyone have a banged-up copy that they would be willing to part with for a reasonable price?

    I have given my husband a book or DVD about Field Trialing, Dog Training or Labrador Retrievers every Christmas for the past 25 years and this sounds like a great book to fit the bill this year. A tad pricey on that retail site for a "stocking stuffer" though.

    Please send me a PM if you are willing to get rid of a copy regardless of condition at a more reasonable price.

    Thanks,

    Save your money. In my nearly half a century of retriever training that has to be the worst book I ever read. One part of it that I find particularly appalling is the author's remarks of not seeing infractions of handlers when they are money people.
