    Default Howard's RTFN memorial..

    For those of you who don't get the FT news, Howard's memorial was in. Thank's to the Retriever Club of Alaska, the Fairbanks Retriever Club, and members of the Retriever Club of Alaska for contributing the funds, and Betsy McCracken for putting it together..

    I miss you Howard...

    A short update on the dogs.. Our training partners have placed the dogs in wonderful homes.. They are all still in Alaska, and there will be no more future breedings from Missy and Bam.

    I hope everyone has Happy Holidays.

    I miss Howard too. He was a real gentleman. Every time me and Rowdy have an issue, I think about not being able to ask Howard about it. He was a great asset to RTF.

    Mary, great job. I know you do miss Howard terribly. I do, too, and I never even got to meet him.

    That was a beautiful tribute in the FTN, nice job. I miss Howard too, it's hard to believe he's gone. I really feel for you and his other close friends, Mary.
