    One of our training partners is a pretty good amateur team: Alex and Tucker! Tucker has over 20 AA wins and he is still running strong. As mentioned above, Malcolm and Ponch are going to be hard to beat for a while with Ponch being so young. Johnny Armstrong has some really nice dogs.

    What makes a handler fun to watch? Well Mickey Rawlins is such a person. I remember Molly beating him to the line. One of the judges as agreed upon between them turns to Mickey and says "Go back to the blind and come to the line together.". With out hesitation Mickey replies "Gentlemen, I can do this a thousand times and ain't going change her coming to line without me".

    One of these days judges like that may come to the realization that this is not a training session &
    they are to judge what they see, bad line manners & all.

    Seems like there was a guy here whose last name was Baker. I think he did pretty well with a couple of his dogs.
