Chris Moriarty here, you all helped me out a few years ago with my labs.
I have not been on this website in awhile, as I have been busy with a new job, and such.
A close friend had a fire at their home, and kennel last weekend. They lost client’s dogs, and the whole home and everything. Here is a brief exerpt of the story:
All, I am asking for your help. A really great friend of mine (and Boo's trainer) Bruce Shaffer from Almost Heaven GSPs lost his home yesterday in West Virginia to a devastating fire. Thankfully his wife and two young daughters are safe but they lost 20+ dogs (mostly GSP's) Some of those dogs were his and some were client dogs. To say this fire is devastating is a severe understatement not only for the loss of the dogs but for Bruce's family losing everything they own. I am asking if you can help please donate to his family at the link below. This is one of those instances that us as a dog community / hunting dog community need to pull together. Please donate if you can.
I couldn't imagine being in their shoes and would be eternally grateful for anyone's help.
You all put me in touch with John Weller years ago, and I have been facebook friends with him since. What a great guy. He suggested I post this on RTF. Granted it is a GSP kennel, but a dog lover and a family is in need.
