Fast- this isn't the first time I've seen you use the word "fantasy" or "magic drive" and I wondered if you can elaborate, perhaps for this given situation. I really am curious, as I'm not exactly sure what you mean. So often we're told to go see dogs in trial and in training in order to decide if we like the dog. Yet you seem to be saying that one can't learn much about the dog in training or trialing- if we think so, we're "living in a fantasy."

Have I misunderstood your point? I see you post this often enough that I'd like to understand what you're saying.
