I'm not sure who you are referring to as in "your pic" since I (the original poster) am not Lynn ... I've met her, but I'm not her. I'm just an interested Golden Retriever Field Trialer who cheers on all Goldens who are running field trials! It's a tough game to win, heck it's tough to finish. And when the odds are stacked against Goldens (in my opinion and casual observation, the poor odds are in number of entries only*), we have to make a big deal out of it!

As for my *, it seems to me that when looking at the number of entries (Goldens v. labs) in field trials, Goldens actually fare better than the number of entries suggests that they should. In the instant case, Rio ran against 59 Labs and beat them!

Good to hear! Love Goldens topping the labs.
