RE: Razz Tracking Dog title

Congrats!! Do you get called out frequently to use the tracker ability?? Search and Rescue is a big step above what we do, both for the dogs and the handlers. The handlers have to have a good understanding of how the environment and conditions effect scent and get their dog in the right position use their noses. The tracking we do could be a stepping stone toward being a search and rescue team. But we got into tracking because it is something that 10-week old puppies can start. Its a chance to really engage with the dogs at young age. http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d90/tfix/IMG_0026Useyournose.jpg That's Breeze at 10 weeks. Although Razz started at 10 weeks, at around 5 months we had to stop for more than 6 months; she suffered panosteitis. Razz is two, Breeze earned her TD at 8 months and had her TDX (much higher level of tracking) before she was two. Practical uses. One of our friends lost her cellphone while hiking in the woods. The next day, Cricket, one of our goldens from days past, followed her route through the woods and alerted on the phone. Five winters ago, I was laying a track for a dog that was learning to track in woods. When I got back to the cars, I didn't have my car keys. In this case, I knew the route I had taken and just turned Breeze loose and told her to "find it." In quick order, she was sitting by my keys. Tom

Razz Tracking Dog title

Razz earned her TD title today. AKC's Tracking Dog title is the first level of tracking. Tracks are between 440 and 500 yards in length. The track layer drops an article at the starting flag, walks a path that was plotted by the judges the day before, and drops an article at the end of the track. The track is aged between 30 minutes and 2 hours before the dog and handler try to follow the track. TD tracks are in open fields and must have both right and left turns. Teams must "certify" before being allowed to enter. That is, they have to have a judge put in a regulation track and prove to the judge that they can past the test. The certifying judge provides 4 certificates to enter tests. The certificates are good for one year. (Because of the verification process, the pass rate is around 50 percent. There were two out of 5 that past at this test.) Razz certified at the end of January last year. But, we couldn't get into a test. In our area, most tests have twice as many entries as they have actual tracks - it takes a lot of land and most tests have between 3 and 6 tracks. When there are more entries than tracks, a random draw is done to see who gets into the test. With Breeze, we were lucky to get into every test we entered. Poor Razz just couldn't get into a test. We got into a test that was to be held last Sunday, but the snow stormed caused it to be postponed. Actually, there are strict rules about AKC postponements and kudos to the Charlotte Club for being able to replace a judge and get things in order to have the test today. Well that's more information than I intended to post. Way to go Razz! http://i.imgur.com/K4gmcaFl.jpg (Left to right across the back: The two judges and the track layer.) Tom

RE: Limit width of photos so text does not run off page?

When your original picture is 393 pixels high, adding height=400 will produce and effect that you will hardly notice. Quotes are not required to add the width or height parameters. Tom

Number 1, Again

As posted last year, after having been ranked the number one Golden Retriever in NADAC agility for three years, 2012 through 2014, Breeze's ranking fell to number two for 2015. She and I are getting older. Well, for 2016, she is again ranked number one. Although she will be 11 next month, we really did have a good year. Perhaps she didn't like me starting to compete with Razz and wanted to show the youngster that she wasn't ready to retire. Toward the end of the year, I did start cutting back on the number of classes she competes in. As long as she stays healthy and eager, we'll keep on running. http://i.imgur.com/i7CTCk9l.jpg Tom

RE: MerleFest Camping 2017

Assuming I would not be driving my RV back and forth, I was choose to camp at Bandit's Roost Kerr Scott Reservoir. It is about 5 miles from the MerleFest However, if you haven't already made reservations, you will have a difficult time finding a campground in the vicinity. Tom

RE: Water Tank Fill In Montana

We stop at Cabela's in Billings, MT. They have big rig parking, fresh water, and a dump station. There's a $5 fee to dump, unless you buy something in the store (ask the cashier for a code to use the dump station.) Another benefit for using Cabela's is a Sam's Club store next door. Tom

RE: can't get this site to take my post

Look through your post and see if you have any special characters in it such as a percent sign. Sometimes they will cause problems posting. This, I think they have an overzealous IPS in place that is (mis)configured to dislike several of the special characters. The other day this bit me when trying to post degree symbols. Removed them and replaced with the word, and the post went through. I don't think zealousness has anything to do with it. It's jus a fly in the ointment - I mean bug in the system that no one seems willing or able to correct. For most of the history of the RV.Net portal, the character issue did not exist. The Woodall's portal does not have the character issue. This post with % and ยบ was made through the Woodall's portal, with no issue. You can also use those characters through the RV.Net portal is you establish a secure (https://) connection. Tom

Razz makes her commercial debut

Belgard commercial She had just turned two, when the commercial was shot. Here is how Razz was introduced to the forum http://i.imgur.com/1FlwnPi.jpg A funny thing about the shooting. The director wanted to know if she could be trained to take a chip from the title boy's hand. (Like a golden has to be trained for that.) But then the director made it hard: can she be rained to walk over and take the chip, without taking the boy's hand off. Tom

RE: change profile

I bought a new truck and don't know how to change profile on the US map. I was able to change profile on the Canadian map. The Canadian map and the information about your new truck is on your profile page. The US map and the information about your older truck is in your signature. Although you can see the signature on your profile page, signatures are created and edited on your preference page. Go to your My Forums page and click on the My Preferenceslink and you will be able to edit your signature. Tom

RE: NE Ohio to Glacier NP

Camping in the park will depend on the size of your rig or towed combination. Only Apgar, on the west side can handle up to 40 feet. Fish Creek, on the west side can handle 35 feet. On the east side, St. Mary and Many Glacier can handle 35 feet. Tom We stayed in St Mary on the east side with our 40 foot motorhome and minivan in tow. I should have prefaced my comment with: "Quoting from Enjoy Your Parks website A look at the Recreation.gov site does show one non-reservable pull-thru site that accommodates 40 foot rigs, site C142. It show no other site that accommodates more that 35 feet. Perhaps they are being conservative with their listings. How many sites did you see that would accommodate 40-foot rigs and a toad? Tom

RE: Cannot post on 1 thread I started

If you are using the Rv.net portal and used a percent symbol in the post, that is the reason. Switch to the Woodall's portal. Tom

RE: Test Post

...... Why it started, no one seems to know... I'm a software tester for a financial institution web site. About the same time RV.net put the screeching halt to the percent symbol, I was testing "malicious" code. In other words, regarding this web site ... a potential hacker could put HTML code imbibed in a post which would make the entire web site vulnerable to attack, or introduce virus's or such. The percent sign is one of those characters specifically used for HTML code. By blocking the user from specific keystrokes, it prevents hacking or malicious code being introduced. That's my experience and my best guess why it's not allowed on these forums. But, every web site has reasons for doing what they do, that might not necessarily make any sense to most of the public anyway. They have their reasons! The problem with your conjecture, as I see it, is that the percent symbol is not an issue on the other portals. The Open Roads Forum is the forum you are reading my post in. You can enter the Open Roads Forum through 7 portals; Woodall's and Trailer Life are two examples. The percent symbol causes no issue through the other portals. Doesn't make a lot of sense to block a symbol through one portal and allow it for the others. The percent issue first arose in late spring of 2012 and lasted fro several months. The symptoms were the same then; that is, the issue only affected the RV.Net portal. From late summer 2012 until January 25 of this year, the percent symbol was not an issue on any of the portals.

RE: Test Post

The percent or per cent symbol is an "ascii" character American Standard Code for Information Interchange that is not allowed in texts. It is interpreted differently. If you really must include it in your composition, write it in words (percent or per cent). Just like the dollar sign, and depending on how the programmer treated it on how the character was included in original program, other characters are off limits too to avoid conflicts. The percent symbol should not be a troublesome character. For most of the history of this forum it has not. The current issue started on January 25 of this year. Why it started, no one seems to know. The issue affects the RV.Net portal, but not the others. Even the RV.Net portal can handle percent symbols, if one is using the secured server - uses https:// instead of http:// The easiest work around is to use the Woodall's portal. It is the same Open Roads Forum, with the same login; it is just a different way to enter. Tom

RE: formatting

An "invalid formatting" error is always because of the use of square brackets. So as not to require much overhead, the software currently is doing a rudimentary check and doesn't know what the actual error is. In essence, the software is counting brackets. Since this post has of open and close brackets, it passes the syntax check. An odd number of pairs would fail. Errors occur when posters use brackets instead of parentheses for parenthetical comments; using an open format tag and forgetting to close (for example, start bold without an end bold); some times it is just an extra bracket, (for example using two open brackets instead of one). The two biggest causes I see are improper editing of quotes (removing one tag and not the other) and using brackets instead of parentheses. This simple check was instituted because these format errors were hanging the servers as the display engine tried to resolve the errors when it formatted a page. Tom

RE: Test of Picture Posting

Pic test https://goo.gl/photos/DRK1SFzc24srQ1F36 Your syntax is good, but your URL is not. It is a URL for a page that contains a picture and not to the picture itself. Here its he URL use to link to the page https://goo.gl/photos/DRK1SFzc24srQ1F36 If you click on the link, it will open the page that contains the picture. I don't use google photos, so don't know if it is possible to get a direct link to the picture. I'm sure they do not make it easy. All but one of the pictures posted above your post are hosted on imgur. The other picture is hosted on photobucket. Open RV.Net Tutorials and Picture related FAQ's and read the text under the first link "Easy Photo Upload & Posting Web App". (I didn't make that a clickable link because you need to read the text.) This is a great tool provide by the moderator 1492. On edit: I see that 1492 has already shown that you can get a direct link to the photo on google. Tom
