Stinkbelly, if it is blue, keep it. I'm too far away to worry about it.
As a commentary to anyone considering putting a dog through this: things were well organized and ran. Rattlesnake, Cottonmouth, and Copperhead were all used in conditioning the dogs. I took my Pudelpointer up and I was really pleased. When he was finished he was demonstrating good decision making in regard to all 3 species of snake, which was a 180 degree turnaround.
