I was saddened to hear that our dog show family has lost another long-time family member: Roberta Campbell passed away suddenly from a stroke. Mrs. Campbell was a breeder and handler with her late husband, the famous terrier handler Seth Campbell. Please join us in wishing Roberta’s family and friends most sincere condolences on her loss.

Let’s all send positive thoughts to Ron and Debbie Scott. For those who don’t know, Ron suffered a subdural hematoma and is recovering at home post-surgery. He has another surgery ahead of him in a few weeks, so everyones’s thoughts and good wishes are appreciated. You can reach out to Ron and Debbie via Facebook if you do not have their email address. Gerry Meisels has also been hospitalized for several weeks, but I hear he is finally on the mend! I am certain he would love to hear from his friends in the dog show community.

The Animal Control truck showed up at the Ft. Wayne show on Sunday. Apparently someone (not sure if it was a spectator or exhibitor) saw someone walking dogs to their vehicle in a manner they were uncomfortable with and took a cell phone video….. Voila, enter Animal Control. We need to be mindful of all of the technology that is out there now, folks. Something as innocent as a lead correction to a non-dog show person can be taken as cruel and inappropriate. If they take a video or photograph the incident, it can appear much more severe or “cruel” than it really is in actuality. As a result, my suggestion is that if one needs to correct or be firm with a dog, think about who may be around you before you do it.

I am off to Fort Wayne this coming weekend: I’d love to catch up with you folks and hear about what you are up to! Look me up and let’s share some stories. As we near the end of the year, this show most often attracts a lot of the nation’s top dogs. I am looking forward to seeing great dogs and my friends from around the country.

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!!

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!
