Yep, Learned this one the hard way last spring..... Second day of seasoned testing for the weekend (water series)......dog leaves the line to retrieve memory bird (60 yds against some cover)..... dog is almost to bird, lining it.... I reach down for the gun and shell..... look up and my dog is swimming right past the bird, and into the cover. By the time I had the whistle in my mouth, the dog was out of sight. Ended up picking him up.... I was more mad at myself than the dog. Will never happen again.Lead in left jacket pocket, never reach for a shell or gun for the diversion until dog has picked up the last mark no matter how close it is, and if running the HRC grand never ever go to a Walmart once the grand is started.
