A post I just made on another thread reminded me of a story and of what could be a fun topic for us all. When was the last time you laughed under judgment? A very long time ago I used to run a large number of AKC hunt tests as well as my favorite NAHRA Field Tests. Paul Young judges both, as well as a couple other games. So AKC senior hunt test land blind. I am running this older overweight red Chesapeake Bay Retriever. We were about the 700th dog to run. While I may exaggerate the number for effect let's just say there was some dragback, OK? So I bring Gate (dog's name) to line and I wisper to her. "Find the bird" . So I Point my toes at the blind get her on a good sit releaser on back, she takes off like a bat out of hell and lines that blind perfectly! Puts the bird in my hand. I turn to hand it to whomever Paul Young was judging with. I think it was Andy Sontag. But could have Mr. Gould (spelling). Paul, still seated looks up to me and says quietly "nice trail". And I just started to laugh because I was sure nobody had heard me whisper find a bird my que for running trails! But we carried on it may possibly have qualified at that particular test. this was so long ago back when we used to run at the dead Creek wildlife Management area in Addison Vermont.
