RE: No longer number one

BIG BIG congrats. That is ONE big accomplishment! http://smileyjungle.com/smilies/celebrate13.gif You sure don't see many Golden's winning agility like that!! And at 10 years young! How are 'your' knees holding out?! :W You don't see goldens doing as well as she has done in the NADAC championships. But, ever year you will see a golden retriever ranked as the number one golden retriever. :) My knees are doing OK for a senior citizen. I have had meniscus repairs on both knees. Tom

RE: No longer number one

Here is my all time favorite run with Breeze. It occurred at the 2013 NADAC Championships. Preamble: At the NADAC championships - 8 runs over 4 day - you expect to run a course unlike any you have ever seen. This is such a course. It has only hoops and tunnels; nothing to slow the dogs down. (At the start, you can see there is a sign on a chair. The sign says "No Speed Zone.") There was a "kicker" for the course. We were told to imagine that there was a 3-foot wide path between each obstacle. Every step the dog makes off that path would be a 1-second penalty. And any spin would be a 1-second penalty. The actual path in turns was adjusted for the size of the dogs. The judging was done by watching videos of the runs. Something very special occurred between Breeze and I. She glances at me just before driving to the 3rd tunnel. In that instance, a lot of trust was communicated. She knew I was going to do something and I knew she would find me coming out of the tunnel. Watch her come out of the tunnels. There is something very different about the way she exits the third tunnel - She waits for me to get in position before she accelerates. She was the only dog in her division to run the course without a penalty second. She finished second. A border collie with 7 penalty seconds was fast enough to beat us.

Breeze always looks like such a happy dog. Good for her! Is Jinks her son? No. Breeze is a Maryland dog and Jinks is a Michigan dog. If you looked at the pedigrees closely enough, you would find they are distantly related - sort of like 22nd cousins 10 time removed. Here is a picture of Jinks at the same spot on the course. http://i.imgur.com/tNX1Iae.jpg Tom

RE: search failure?

I don't believe it will find never in any post. The "first level" search is not a full text search; it looks for keywords that have been indexed. Due to the massive size of the database, this approach was taken so that searches could be done in a reasonable amount of time. As an aside, there was a period of time when the indexing was done at night. The result was that one could not search any posts that had been made that day, until the indexing was done. What constitutes a "keyword" that will be indexed? I doubt if I ever really knew; I certainly don't know now. In the thread your were interested in, if you did a search for winegard, you would find it. You didn't ask about the following, but it is really a peeve of mine. The Search within results used to be a very powerful feature. One would search for a keyword, such as winegard and then do a Search within results for a word like never. That would find all post (in the last 12 months) that contained the indexed word winegard and the non-indexed word never. The reason it worked was because, as originally implemented, Search within results was a full-text search (even substrings) and would find ever occurrence of the string of characters never, even if they were in the middle of another word. Some years ago, somebody made a decision to change the Search within results from a full-text search to a keyword search. Thus, it became no different from an initial search that uses the Find posts with all of the words in any order option. That is, Search within results went from being the most powerful feature of the search engine to an almost worthless one. As usually happened, that change was made without asking the moderators for any input and without given any notice of the change. It didn't matter that the Search tutorial said, and still says, that Search within results is a full-text search. Let me leave it, while by blood pressure is still under control. Tom

RE: Trouble posting with new computer

Doesn't sound like a cookie problem to me. On the computer, do you see Welcome Gjac in the upper-right portion of the forum pages? If yes, it is not a cookie problem, you are logged in. I would try the Woodall's portal. If you are successful there, it would seem not to be a problem on your end. Tom

RE: Traveling thru Canada with dog

We've crossed into Canada many times - into Alberta this past summer. We've never been asked for papers on out dogs going into Canada. Coming back into the US is another story. We are almost always been asked for the dogs shot recored, In particular, they want to see the rabies shot records. Although we use to get a health certificate, their short records is all we carry, now. Tom
