    He is a talented dog from a productive pedigree. I knew and liked him when he was young. He adds oomph to the equation, perhaps a little too much to Trumarc’s Number 12 who is always fun to train and the most dangerous place in the field is between Roger and a bird. Deets puppies, at least this litter, are not for the faint of heart nor or they appropriate for novice trainers.

    I can relate to this pretty well. My girlfriend at the time was throwing marks for my 14 or 15 month old BLF. There was a bad throw, and the dog broke on the re-throw. She walked over to pick up the mark so the dog wouldn't be rewarded for the break but didn't realize how fast the dog was closing. As she bent over to pick up the bumper the dog hit her at full speed right in the jaw. It spun her around and dropped her to her knees. By time I got over there she was bleeding pretty good and had no idea what had happened. The result was a really bad concussion that affected her for months afterwards. She ended up missing a lot of work had to spend most of her time in a dark quiet room. It took so long for her to get better I started to worry she was going to have lasting damage from it. Oh, and it was a pretty awkward trip the emergency room that morning, bringing a girl in with that kind of swelling and cut to her face and telling them my dog hit her on a retrieve. She jokes about it now and will be the first to tell you "that dog will knock a b*tch out"

    I just got my Mickey pup. At 7 1/2 weeks and WOW is all I can say. Already swimming like a fish in deep water, absolutely crazy to retrieve a paint roller, boisterous, bold, and fearless. Trainer friend of mine has 2 of her littermates and he says they are the best puppies he's ever seen. I know that doesn't mean anything in regards to how they can mark and will turn out, but I absolutely LOVE what I see so far.

    Mickey is a wonderfully talented dog with a plus pedigree who has the genotype and phenotype to be a good or great sire. That being said I have heard this at least one hundred times in my years with dogs which always leads me to speculate that the person who proclaims this either has not seen many puppies or hasn’t seen many good ones.

    I am quite impressed with Tubb. Not only is he a winner himself, I believe I read he has three offspring in this National. That tells me what I want to know! Best of luck with your new pup Dr. Ed.

    He's seen quite a few. How many 'good ones'? That's debatable. Here's the sire of some of the pups he's seen over the last few years besides these Mickey pups.

    I'll also chime in on Ali...

    When you judge, there are certain dogs who, when they come to the line, that you notice and say "who the hell is that"? Ali is the one that comes first to my mind...he is a big boy, 90 lbs +, but put together perfectly. You would think it's Mufasa coming to the line, with the ground shaking under his feet. The dog kicked back gravel when he was sent for his blind...a blind!

    Amazing to me how a dog of his size & strength, and one that ran that hard never had any significant injuries. Speaks to how structurally sound he was/is. A spectacular specimen.
