I remember when jellobabe was a hardcore retriever trainer. Know she just prances around the ring with a shiny new lead attached to a Chessie of all things. I think hell froze over...

"you don't get trapping advice from a trapper with no pelts on his wall" from Guy Burnett via Marvin Sundstom in 2013
And that's what makes it even more pitiful and affirms what you said about the minor breeds being "damn near a lost cause" as gundogs - because from this kind of A/V trial, as is held in the UK, you could earn an FC essentially competing against your own breed of dogs.
If - and what an "if," as in "if wishes were Secretariat, you'd have a lot of horsepower to run with" - they had any interest in field work a'tall. Which they don't, feeble endorsements to the contrary. And there's no way enough spaniel - and gundog - lovers could ever import enough working Sussex and Clumbers to have that happen anyway. Double-damned near lost cause, I agree.
