    You probably should have said show dog hunt testers...

    i do not think they mean you have to really mark down your total if you know the dog will average over 7, but some judges just do not put a score on their sheet but just mark pass or fail. Guess they think they are judging HRC. But Mark you are right, why bring out the calculator for ones you know will make the score.
    A far a keeping them for 60 days, no big deal. I did have a case the a dog passed, got the ribbon but AKC did not have the pass. For some reason the book that got sent to AKC did not have his pass but the HTS's book did. Handler called me and asked if I could check my sheet and send a note to AKC to correct it.

    Rather than looking at this "NEW" rule as a pain in the A** for Judges, Karen provided a very good POSITIVE reason for it. It is also a good example of when asked to sign the Books, judges should verify the Official results as recorded by the HT Secretary.

    Your right about checking the HTS books but when they do 4 books and you check out at least 2 of them you expect the others to be the same. I have learned to actually help the HTS mark 2 of the books while they mark the others and have my co judges all numbers than go back and I call and co judges looks at book along with hts.

    Angry Older Golden Women

Not that there is anything wrong with that.
    I just find that simply amazing that you said that about older golden women, REALLY? Those older golden women are also the marshals, secretaries and sometimes judges. And how about, we just like the hunt test game instead of "simply looking for any type of title". The MOST important thing is we enjoy training our dogs and seeing them achieve greatness in the field, how about that! And what if I'm not a hunter, what does that matter?? I have men say yes "I'm a duck hunter" and they couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

    Us older golden women go out to train, we get muddy, we throw dead ducks and pigeons, we shoot popper guns, we load and unload all our training tools just like men do. Oh, almost fogot to mention, we train with some older golden men, but I guess they simply aren't looking for any type of title to get on their dogs. They are the MIGHTY DUCK HUNTER!

    Off my soapbox!

    Choke chain question is a proven winner. Just like Golden questions and those glorious Chessie's smells comments.
