    Pointers aren't docked. Well that's assuming your granddaughter(one word) got two Pointers aka English Pointers.

    BTW there are a NUMBER of breeds who fall under the type "pointer" and have the word pointer in their name so it may help to be a bit more blood specific in which breed you are talking about.

    Jessie: i'm pretty sure you've got TDs because a) Pointers AREN'T docked. b) You go off on a little rant that includes the bs notion docking will be universally banned > not as long as people in the US refuse to let the AR crowd take over > and c) since there are a VARIETY of pointing breeds there is no one answer as to why x breed has a 1/3-2/3 dock when another breed does not.
