Four or five years ago I wrote a story and posted it here, but it got lost in the accidental purge.
Sherri and I have been blessed to meet and befriend some legendary field trialers. Our beloved Terri Veach introduced us to Joe Pilar. And Joe introduced us to one of the loves of our lives -- Cai Trzepacz. Cai is one of the dearest and sweetest ladies you would ever want to meet. Cai is the widow of John Trzepacz, who owned the great Corky before selling him to Mike Flannery.
That afternoon I met Cai I asked a million questions about Corky, and she did her best to answer. She also showed me hundreds of pictures not just of Corky, but also of John and their dogs before and after Corky. She allowed me to scan my choice of the pictures, and all the print articles. But my greatest gift was a film of Corky as a puppy arriving at their home for the first day, and John giving him a bath with a hose in their backyard. Then the film watches him as he grows and shows him working. I converted the film to DVD for Cai and she graciously allowed me to keep a copy.
Anyway, here are the scans of some of the pictures --
