    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.

    Just saw this and was shocked. Like Marvin, I knew Howard since before Pricey. He shared some excellent drills with me, always commenting they were "borrowed" from Jimmy. Although I saw him rarely, when I did, it was as tho we had just talked the day before. So sad to lose him and so many will miss him.

    I always liked reading Howard's posts. And he always answered my PM's, giving me good advice about training. He was one of the good guys and will be missed.

    Shocked and saddened. Howard was one of the last people remaining on here whose advice was always worth reading and following Like others have mentioned my first contact with Howard was when he reached out to me on here via a complimentary PM. He didn't need to do that but it was typical of him. In my mind he was clearly the best remaining RTF regular I only briefly spent time with him when he came on a Winter training trip. His knowledge and passion for the dogs and games was quite evident and touching. Godspeed Howard

    Howard and I communicated a few times years ago about NM being winter training grounds. Like all, I'll miss his posts. JD

    Doesn't seem real. I'll expect to go to the line next spring and see Howard there. Every time I put on a pair of black handling gloves, I'll hear him over my shoulder saying "Paula, you sure you want to use black?" I'll definitely miss him. RIP Howard. You were a good man.
