Bill, Thank you for your kind words about Ellie and my breeding program of 38 years. Have the best of days, Al Bianchi Orion Kennels.
thanks for the message - remember the trial like it was yesterday - youngster just starting out - stayed the whole week on grounds committee - have a picture of Charlie Hayes, Joanie william, Bob Sabban, Nora and Howard Larson - think you would remember all of them - thanks for the message he was not a super star in trials as we used to call him "last bird Joe" - hardly ever went out until last series but always found a way to mess up last bird
Vern was a very special person - was with him at his last trial with a derby dog - think you co owned it and then when to GA to pick him up after Abe
died - that was a drive home with Mary H and him talking about the "old days"
still can't forget Herb Walsh
