If they don't want to fetch in the first place - I won't try and make them. Not worth the effort.
    You can call it whatever makes you happy. I just don't think the dodge will play with anyone but you,.
    If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

    It's irrelevant - I will end up with the same result as you - a dog that goes reliably and tools to correct the issue if he doesn't.

    Polmaise-- That is a real fair deal. I find that hard to believe no one would take you up on that. No "wiping the eye" prospects? Maybe we should start a "lend lease" program with racing pigeons? Relive our misspent youth on birds.
