    Angry NFC Copper

    Just heard Copper was hit and had to be put down.
    Does anyone have more news on this?

    Is this a joke? How does a NFC get hit by a car?

    Wow, if this proves to be true it is truly sad...for any dog for that matter.

    Tragic that it would happen to such a great dog.

    Is this the dog you are talking about?!? What heartbreaking news.

    M

    "FC AFC Dr. Copper Phd, MH won The Nationals in Missouri Saturday. She is a Yellow Lab Female. Copper was handled by an amateur, Wayne Dodson. She is a hunt test dog that sleeps in the house and rides in the back seat of Wayne's truck. She is also a hunting dog.

    Wayne also doesn't really use a collar in training and sends his dog on her name for blinds and marks..... he also talks to her about squirrels to get her pumped on a blind. I asked him last night what he does for a correction and he said he grabs her ears and shake her head and tells her she's common......... but not to hard cuz she'll get mad and not talk to him for a couple days."

    An NFC gets hit by a vehicle by going everywhere with her human and being with him all the time.
    My heart truly breaks for Wayne, Jan, Ashley and all of Copper's other family and friends.

    Oh. How Terrible. Makes me sick to hear something like that. Prayers are going out to the Copper Family.

    How terribly sad! My condolences to Copper's family and all who loved her.

    I remember watching the clips of that National and what emotion Wayne showed when it was announced that Copper had won.

    Bless you, Copper, Rest in Peace.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.
