There are several contenders with 3 series to go, no one is "winning" yet, the dog(s) in good shape now who have outstanding work in the next 3 series will be the ones to consider. 9 will probably be monster water marks, still 30% of the trial left to run.I haven't been able to keep up with the blog. So my question to those following it more closely and have more trial knowledge than myself. Who is in the lead? Looks like Grady is making a strong showing. Again!
I don't know whose winning yet either, but by accident I found out if you search in the upper left corner for a particular dog's name, it displays all the blogs for that dog on one page so you can see all the comments at once....like that feature..then you just hit the back arrow and it's back to the regular displayIf we knew the answer to that none of us would be glued to our computers right now!
I just went back and looked at Grady and travelers reports. Looks like both are doing really good with a "small" hunt apiece in one of the early series. Not saying that they are the only ones hitting on all cylinders. Just the 2 that I took the time to look at. Both have had really good blinds thus far too. But at this level, we all know that every dog is capable of doing the work. Chad will take over the world if he has 2 back to back nafc's. Speaks volumes for Grady that him and his son are putting together a performance like this.
There are many of us who are realistic and realize that it's not over 'til it's over. That's the way we roll. We may have our favorites but even at a weekend trial we would never EVER speculate on who is going to win until the last bird is retrieved.Come on guys. Some of you are so dry that you can't take a joke. I have had the Pleasure of talking to chad once very briefly. Not saying that I know him personally! In my comment "he will take over the world" I was merely referring to how often he is contacted for studding Grady! With 2 nafc's (hypothetically) he would be contacted more. I don't have inside information at the national so the blog is all I'm going by. Like I stated previously. I did not read every dogs, every series! There may be some doing better. But there are a lot that would love to be clean going into the 8th series. Impressive for someone like me who wouldn't even imagine having the oppertunity to be qualified for a national. Ease up guys.
