    well when the judges call everyone when you get ready to run your dog....... telling them that this will be fun one way or the other.......dog will be special or will mess up so bad you will see what not to do... Maxx you have definately got me some review on training......LOL. One of my favorite judges Carol Rombauer (RIP) used to like to have a winger throw the 3rd bird of a triple right over the dog and handler's heads. Maxx heard the winger go off and jumped straight up and caught the bird in flight........and sat right down at heel..... I asked "DOES that count as the first.bird?" ....LOL. Between tears of laughter was told WHY NO.........
    My Dad said to me ."Son, a man just needs three things to be happy....A good dog, a good gun and a good wife.....Thank God I have all three

    1.When you propose to your girlfriend in November. The next day she sets a date in March and the first calendar you look at to finialize a date is hunt secretary.
    2.When you wonder if you can register at hunt'em up.com for wedding gifts (need a new shock collar to speed up the training process )
    3.When with a group of friends or at a social party (non dog related) the significant other gives you ''that'' look when she catches you on ''doggy-space'' ''doggie-book'' and all the other names she has created for The RTF.

    1. When almost all your time is spent looking for that perfect training pond and every pond you ever come across sets your mind whirling at the possibilities.
    2. When every vacation is either spent at a trial, hunt test, or training.
    3. When it's absolutely normal to drive across the country (or to another country) to run a trial.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    When the other girls at the party start talking about how important it is to have extra clothes and shoes in the car... And so you chime in about muck boots and jacket colors, and then, after moment of confused silence, they talk about black dresses and heels.

    When you keep trying to tell your family that this is only sport.
    When you are trying to explain to family and friends where you are all day????
    When the neighbors see you snowblowing your lawn in WW pattern??
    When there are dead ducks lying in your garage and friends ask "what is up"??
    And on and on....

    When your colleagues ask if your dog did okay at Westminster... again...

    And instead of correcting them you say, "maybe next year."
