The best dog i have seen on the ground was out of Powder. What a dam shame. Seems to have hurt the English Pointer breed IMO.
I agree 100%. I never understood why the dog's were punished and black listed. It's a shame that they (Dateline and White Powder) could'nt have been sold or giving to Lester, Anderson, Phillips or the highest bidder to trial and breed. It has without a dout set back the Pointer breed. I personally prefer Dateline dogs but what is he. Oh yeah, a son of Powder. It just makes no sense and I believe it was done just to punish the HOF breeder/trainer/handler but in turn it just punished the pointer breed.

Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

Can anyone say "hijack"? IMHO, this doesn't belong on this thread. It should have it's own thread and not take away attention from the NBDC and/or it's winner.

Greydawg,

There you go, sorry. I didn't mean to hi-jack the thread. It just got me to thinking what a nice sire White Powder was.

X2 - Don't mind reading about the subject AGAIN, but start a new thread. Let's not have anything here that takes away from " In the Shadow's " tremendous performance. Thanks.

In all fairness, the trial is over but you are right, it does deserve it's own thread. :D

Is it just me or does it seem that in the AA world it does'nt come down to who has the best dog but rather who has the best Miller dog. 8)
