Rain has set in...

...but without the sound, visual effects and danger brought to us earlier by thunder and lightning. 

As of this writing, 55 dogs have run and 22 of them have been handled to one of the two retired marks. Some of these dogs are now carrying two handles. A few dogs have switched and handled, not necessarily in that order.   

The cover is pretty high and some dogs miss either longer bird and keep on going into the big field deep of the birds, requiring handles back to either prospective bird. Some dogs get to the right of the right-hand longer gun (technically the middle gun of the test) and put on substantial hunts well behind the concealed holding blind and finally must be handled to that bird.
