    I like Greg Kosionowski's (?sp--sorry Greg) Luke. Luke is Patton x FC AFC Candlewoods Rita Reynolds--excellent pedigree on both sides. That dog can mark and he seems to be level-headed. Luke and Greg were the only team to do the Amateur retired punch bird at Blackhawk's trial without handling...and Luke did it very well to boot!

    It will be Slider.
    Field Trials are competitions....not everyone gets a "participation ribbon" and they do "keep score"

    I can't believe that Cane has not been bred anymore than he has to this point.

    Does anyone have contact information on Cane's owner for possible breeding?

    Yes, but not nearly as much as he could or would if he were EIC clear, in all likelihood. That was my point, someone asked why certain accomplished studs don't get bred more, the two mentioned were EIC carriers, which DOES impact a stud's choices & breeding, regardless of how many other wonderful attributes a dog might have, such as Ali being OFA excellent/ normal elbows, consistent record, pedigree, decent size/looks, yellow-factored, etc. There can be other factors, but EIC carrier status seems to be a common (stupid, IMO, but that's another argument) denominator.

    Sorry to go slightly off topic, but I think Ali looks like a lab should look. He's blocky and proportionate but doesn't look like a rottweiler like most of the bench dogs today.

    And he is throwing those looks to his offspring

    There are many talented, field titled potential stud dogs who are not being bred to because they are EIC carriers.

    Sad, but true. The stigma still exists.
