    Thumbs down with heavy heart I lost a great little dawg in her sleep

    Well in her sleep one of the dogs with the biggest heart in a small package passed away. Rockerin Pasta Cappelini (2/4/2003 ,2/3/2014). Cappy was a 45 pound Dawg with a 90 pound heart. It did not get too far or too rough for her. She produced some nice pups in the 12 pups she produced. 5 HRCH,1 SH and a Bomb detection dog. You will be missed Cappy..

    Very, very sorry for your loss. They live such full, hard charging lives being such great companions that they never live long enough.

    I hope your grief turns to relief before too long and the good memories replace today's sorrow.

    So sorry Otey. No matter how old you are, it's tough to lose them, no matter how many times we go through it, it doesn't get any easier. My condolences.

    Sorry to hear this sad news Otey.
    "Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.

    Otey

    I feel so sorry for you. These days are just awful.
    Keep the memories.
    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

    They are never with us long enough. Hoping the memories of time shared will soon fill the hole in your heart and turn your tears into smiles once again.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.
