    Where do you get beds like that?

    you can get them from Cabelas. I am getting ready to order one myself. MY 7 mo. BLF still likes to use me as her pillow when we are watching TV. At night she still sleeps in her kennel in the basement (as a matter of fact she's there right now for not listening to my wife).

    You should be ashamed. These dogs probably won't retriever any more.

    I agree with the lack of water bowl etiquette, it is my experience that one of the major problems with Chopper dogs and Chopper grandsons is that as much or more water shoots out both sides of the mouth as goes down the throat when they drink.
    Field Trials are competitions....not everyone gets a "participation ribbon" and they do "keep score"

    Excellent example. I see the house is a shambles due to those unruly, head strong, wild FT dogs living in your house...

    Those trial dogs make terrible house dogs, too high strung, always busy and you guys must have doctored up those photos. I remember Joyce Williams , Owner of Candlewoods Super Tanker, watched him jump over a holding blind waiting to go the line, told me Tank was a perfect dog in the house, calm relaxed had to step over him when he laid on the floor. I think Joyce was telling stories.
