    Oh Howard. I still can't find the right words. We're going to miss you so bad buddy. Thank you for the privilege of enjoying your killer wit and learning from your training wisdom.

    I never had the pleasure of meeting Howard but as everyone has said... I learned a lot from reading his posts here on RTF. I am so sorry for this tragic loss for his family and friends.

    Wow! Shocked and saddened to see this news. Never met him, but always respected and appreciated his opinions and attitude here. Howard was the kind of guy that made this site, this sport, and this World a better place.

    Those who will miss him most are the competitors. He always brought a well trained dog ready for the level of competition entered. The Alaska folks are fast losing examples to emulate.

    Over the years we exchanged PM's when Howard needed a clarification of some comment I had made. At trials we would talk, I appreciated having him as a fellow competitor & knew him before Pricey. Sometimes we don't spend enough time with someone feeling they will be here forever.

    RIP Howard !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am at a loss for words. Howard was true class. He advised me via pm's on several training issues over the years. He didn't have to do that. I will miss him.

    Someone else said it better, how can you be so heartbroken over someone you never met? He loved to give me grief about having Chesapeakes, but never in a mean way. He had that gift, I think; of making you feel like a good friend he valued and respected and was so generous in sharing training tips and encouragement. Our retriever community lost a good one.
