Oh no! I was just thinking of calling Howard last week. I bought Mick from him Chopper x Bam. Howard always said that I got the one that he would have kept if he had a bigger litter and could afford it. Howard called often to check on his progress. Although Mick has never lit the circuit on fire (my fault), he's my favorite. Once we got on the phone you knew an hour would be gone before you knew it. Regretting not following through on my impulse to call, just wanted to tell him a couple pheasant hunting stories. Rest in peace bud. I'll always think of you when I scratch our little buddy behind the ears.
