One Last Post On Test Five For Today...

... It's my sincere hope you enjoyed the earlier information on the test description and photos... Here is a brief summary statement until I resume tomorrow... Overall, work was very similar on the setup late this afternoon with mostly workman-like blinds and adequate marks. However, one dog had considerable trouble recovering his mark and that was #80, who seemed to lose his perspective once he began hunting the flyer in earnest. His hunt covered a lot of ground and also included quests in the water. That's a tough row to hoe and it can happen to the very best of dogs at any time...which serves to remind us all that no bird should ever be taken for granted. I've enjoyed watching this dog for many years and he's one of the most consistent in the country.

By the way, if you're not aware, there are some terrific videos of dog work and numerous interviews that can be accessed on WRC by clicking on available links on the daily reports...check them out.

See you in the morning.
