Good looking pose. That foot in the air is beautiful but when I was trialing it made me nervous. That foot usually led to a step that could flush the birds. My idiots I had usually would at 59 minutes into a 60 minute trial especially when they weren't needing any more bird work. I remember a dog named Mikey that would have a trial won and bust that last bird. I loved him the most of any dog I ever had. I could have killed him sometimes though.
Again good looking dog and the slack check cord is a great thing. Almost there!
