    I respect your decision and hope you find happiness in it. But I am always suspicious when a man jumps all the way in the water because he loves it and finds so much joy in it, then decides he needs to jump all the way out?

    Thirty years ago there was a super-active guy in charge of our HRC club, single-handedly directed everything, and directed it very well! Had the admiration of the entire club. He trained a couple dogs to HRCH titles and was starting on a third pup when suddenly he announced he was done and moving on. About ten years later I ran into him at a dog training area. Still training regularly. Still doing what he loves and found the most rewarding -- working with the dogs. Just not in a club; Just not competing.

    Gene Hill wrote a short story called "One." About some superstar FTer who had this great champion retriever that got killed in a hunting accident. But the heart-shattered guy got another retriever, and still hunted. Just didn't compete anymore.

    Me? Obesity and the price of gas pushed me out of the game. (I am doing something about the obesity but the price of gas I am powerless to affect.) But I could never imagine not having a retriever, and not training. I don't care if I never run a HT again. I do care if I have to stop training. That is what I find the most rewarding.

    But to each their own. Like I said, I hope you find your happiness.

    I believe that he was referring to VANMAN's rather oddly formatted missive (no caps, odd punctuation, etc.) which WAS difficult to read.

    Im in same boat as youderby list n qaa by 3yrs mh by 4 and 10 am and 4.5 open points later need a win.im not retired and work full time n do all my own training.hunt alot in falling.enjoy the training.its a demanding game for the average person.expensive isnt the correct term.more like money pit.i can only afford 5 starts in spring and 5, in fall.when i get tired of gettin a bloody nose ill go run a master test with some. Friends n have fun.its hard to compete against endless money and pros but as long as i have the dog that can play the game ill keep. Pluggin.away as best i can.maybe well get that win before he dies.by the way those points in open n am are with a golden that likes to get wet.thought about throwin in the towell a few times but cant do it.

    I guess you could lead by example?

    Losthwy,
    Good luck with your future endeavors. This can be an expensive and very time consuming sport which requires many sacrifices.
