Yup. Your humor is pretty darn good! I’m with Terry on that 🙂

In addition, I thought a bit about your question to Kim, “Also, wondering if setting up an artificial search area like this is beneficial? As opposed to working actual doorways, etc???” As I looked at your setup and how you approached your defined start line, you effectively had a much longer start line to work with. Even though you defined the start as being at the far right (between the two cones), since you walked along the area from left to right to get to that artificial start line, Cooper was probably working already (or would have been, had you had any hides inside the area, on the left side). That might have been interesting to observe, although I’ll agree it probably wasn’t consistent with Kim’s instructions for this lesson.
