    Default AFC Topbrass Pawsability OD FDHF (8/16/98-2/19/2013)

    Our heart felt condolences go out to Jackie Mertens for her loss of" Paws". She was a great one and produced some wonderful performing dogs of today. Paws was a very sweet girl and gave Jackie much joy both in competition years and retirement.

    Oh how sad. Paws was such a talented girl and an absolute sweetheart. My heart goes out to Mrs. Jackie.

    Oh wow! I just leaned over in my chair to give her littermate brother Yoda a pet and a hug, these animals break our hearts. Paws was a fantastic dog well over 30 all age points, derby list, double header and great producer. Also at my feet today is a very nice Paws son Gus. My heart goes out to Jackie, I know that even with all the great dogs she's had, Paws was special.

    I'm sorry for Jackie and all those that knew Paws.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Paws was featured a few times in Jackie's "Sound Beginnings" video. A pretty dog as well as talented! Fly free Paws!

    I am so sorry to hear of Paws' passing. My heartfelt condolences go to Jackie. Paws was a great dog and a wonderful producer. I feel very fortunate to have one of her daughters. My thoughts are with Jackie.
