    Default What's the word on the street?

    It's been a while now since Pete's passing and he left some mighty big shoes to fill.
    So folks, If you had a say, who would it be ? ............and why do you think so?

    We were just discussing that training today, John. I recommended you.

    How long should this go on with no one at the helm.

    What was had at the National and called a RAC semi anual meeting,
    was a joke.

    Off of sq one regards,

    There is no one in the game today of Pete Simonds stature, both in dogs and in life, no one who could call the President of the American Kennel Club and have him drop what he was doing to take the call.

    I know nothing!......but I have heard that his successor is likely to be "someone from the East"

    Hi John,

    Please tell us in clear terminology who you think it should be. No riddles, no interpretation required by the reader. Straight up. Name somebody please.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    In spite of his age........There is only one person that comes to mind for the Chairmanship position and that is A "Nelson" Sills, a man with plenty of stature in his own right, leaving the open spot on the Subcommittee for appointment a formidable but less daunting task. So what's taking so long ???????????

    It's a no brainer!!!!!!!

    Hi Chris,

    Now, you have my nominee, what is your opinion and why????

    I have a strong interpretation skill set, so feel free to be as circumlocuitous as you like. So straight up, or zig zag, peak-a-boo, or any old way you like . Let's have it please.

    Now, of course, if you were just jerking my chain, checking my oil so to speak, and have no clue as to the who's a viable candidate and the reasons for them being so, I will underatand .

    Thanks,
    john

    You got my number brother John.

    I have no clue.

    I've worn a white coat a total of 5 times when under judgement in an AKC event.

    I was not jerking your chain. I was sincerely interested in your opinion. I figured, based upon past history, that you did have one.

    Thank you sincerely for posting it!
