When I watch the retriever series on ESPN and see the creeping, whining and lack of manners displayed, it disgusts me. Those actions though are a lack of competent training, not a lack of competent breeding.
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.
I see just fine. I competed for years with those dog, producing four field champions, 18 QOA's, and four on the National Derby List. Of all those dogs, plus a lot more I didn't compete with, once ONE was a whiner and creeper, a female from Benji. I loved and thrived on the incredible brilliance, desire, and ability of these dogs. In Canada I saw a slug of Canadian (British) Labs. I didn't like the build, I didn't like the laid back, lackadaisical attitude, and I especially didn't like the fact that American Labs kicked my butt.
I have never understood hoe anyone can think a dog superior that lacks desire, ability, and intelligence simply because the dog is supposedly calmer and easier to work with. Garbage. If a dog can't beat another dog one on one, he's an inferior animal. Same as a racehorse, racing dog, coon hound, fox hound, or beagle. Competition breeds greatness, meeting a standard results in mediocracy.
I hate seeing a game bird die of natural causes, unless I naturally cause it.
