If you read the article, states clearly the US trial tests are contrived and made up, they arent real shoots or hunts as brit trials are, whining is allowed in US trials and not DQd-obedience is judged less, and the focus here is on handling, to fewest whistles.
Surely, you know this Rick.
Not sure why youd expect Brits to come over for a made up test with a focus on 'tangibles' that contrast their own, which are Hunting, recovering game and doing so with extreme obedience and cooperation.
My friend attended the event and watched first hand.
The US was robbed of nothing. Lets not play sore loser now too.
Not sure what in the hell happened since 1931, as it wouldnt be recognizeable today and thats a shame.
We tied for 4th place, in an International Retriever competition, that we had never before competed in at any level.DWTurnipseed wrote:If you check the results, I mean really look at them, the USA wasnt even close.
578 to 642 for the winning score. We did edge out a few powerhouses like Canada, Italy and Austria.
Moral victory for you and America?

Another gem by Gonehuntin. None are so blind as those that refuse to see.
As if breeding hot bred trial dogs to hot bred dogs doesnt carry with it some baggage, neurosis and temperment issues!!!
Thanks for the comedy, mate.
