    Art, I don't know a thing about the area, but I wanted to add that you are definitely in my thoughts and prayers through all of this. I hope you end up with a quick, complete recovery from all that ails you, and that you're able to get out to train and run your dog again soon!

    Art Geddes has been an officer and active member of the Tulsa Retriever Club for many years. He is my friend, we have enjoyed many hours of training and discussing field trials. Anyone who has met Art know he is a kind soul and passionate retriever man. My thoughts and prayers will be with him today.

After the last one I cardiologist would not clear me to go back to work. I have been listed for a heart transplant at Integris Baptist in Oklahoma City but now have to have my large intestine removed due to some bouts of diverticulitis over the last 5 years. Unfortunately I have not been able to do any dog training so my dog is going crazy. Tie intestinal surgery will be done in Okla City in Integris as I am considered high risk due to the cardiac issues. If any OKC people would be ablte to give names of inexpensive yet decent hotels in the area it would be appreciated for my support persons during this. Thankfully my insurance from work will stay in force and has very good coverage. Thanks in advance guys.
