    This is terrible news. Howard became a friend over the last 10-11 months after purchasing a Emmitt X Missy pup. Our conversations started off brief. However, they grew in length with the last one lasting around 45 minutes. I will miss our monthly conversation.

    Condolences to all his friends and family.

    Very sad...he seemed to be a kind and generous man, and I will miss reading his thoughts here.

    So sorry to learn this. I had little contact with Howard outside this forum, but liked him and will miss his presence here.

In fact, he only wanted to own two dogs at that time; he had recently purchased a pup from me and had purchased Pricey a bit earlier; His older male won and because of that, my pup departed his kennel to go to our other training partner. Since then he has had a lot of wins with several different dogs. I have thrown literally thousands of marks for his dogs over the years, while he did the same for me. I will miss him very much.

    Very sad. I met Howard in Calif about ten years ago. We trained togeather several times and ran trials. It didn't matter what was set up he didn't mind making adjustments to fit his needs. I always respected his desire to keep moving forward with his dogs. In my mind he loved every minute he had with his dogs. Always gracious with praise for others when they did well...in training and trialing. He is a good man that made everyone better around him. A true gentleman...we need more Howards in the game.

    I woke up still in a state of disbelief. I will miss Howard. Fortunately, he spent his time pursuing his passion - the dogs. Godspeed Howard.
