It is with great sadness that I have to report the loss of two more icons of our sport. First, I offer condolences to the friends and family of Carl Sanders on his recent passing. Our dog family also lost another legend with the passing of the great handler and judge, Bob Forsyth. We know he and Jane are together again watching over us all and cheering us on at the shows. On a happier note, warmest congratulations to Ashley and Brendon on their recent marriage. May you have many happy years together!!

I was saddened to hear that Ron Scott was a bit under the weather: After a short stay in the hospital, I hear he is home and on the mend. Get well quickly and take care of yourself my friend!
Thoughts and prayers are with Bergit and Hans Kabel as she fights a serious illness. Bergit – the entire fancy is thinking about you and sending good thoughts to you and your family.
Our own Cheslie Pickett Smithey took a journey across the pond to the Royal in Melbourne, Australia to judge juniors. I can’t wait to hear about the journey and her judging experience!

On a happier note, Don Powell and Liz Holle were married this past weekend on the beach in Duck, North Carolina. I understand it was a lovely venue for a quaint wedding. We wish the popular couple all the best for many happy years to come!

The dog world was saddened by the news that Joe Tacker passed away on August 27, 2016. Joe was a fixture at dog shows for nearly 60 years as a judge becoming one of AKC’s few all-rounders. He judged less over the past several years, but he could still be found in the ring several times per year. A veteran of World War II and the Korean War, Joe found a career as a commercial airline pilot. We will all miss his friendly smile and kind demeanor at our shows.

Regarding that point I was so encouraged to hear Marissa Clark’s intro before she judged the Sussex Spaniel specialty on Friday. Prior to the start of judging, she addressed all exhibitors outside the ring calling their attention to the heat and giving all the license to wet their dogs down and keep them cool: She comforted all by saying she is familiar with coated dogs and would NOT negatively view anyone who wet their dog down. She then gave all of the exhibitors the choice to go at a faster pace to minimize the length of time these dogs would be in the heat. Much to my delight all agreed to go at a rapid pace for the sake of the dogs. Kudos to Marissa Clark and the Sussex Spaniel folks!!!!!
