: The judge didn't have to tell us to catch our dogs before crossing.Hell, we just caught them roaded them down the bar ditch and turned them loose on the course.This was an HWY but out in this next of the woods scarce traffic.Guess my point is that in certain cases you just have to touch your dog.Reminds me of a dog I admired a lot in Mr. Stub Poynor string David Of Caddo.Ata trial in Kansas we found David pointing along a tight barbed wire fence line.He was pointing with a level tail.When Stub crossed through the fence he raised the bottom wire a tad and Davids tail sprang straight up.We all got a big laugh.
