    Default John C. Darling

    It is with a heavy heart that I type this post. A great friend of mine John Darling passed away today. He taught me a great deal about training. I will be reminded of him everytime I see my dog, Molly Izia Duk Dawg who is sired by Izziee A Duk Dawg. Please keep his daughter in your thoughts and prayers.

    Oh, no. I didn't know him well, but I did have a few good conversations with him at tests. Good guy with a real understanding of dogs. He made a lasting impact on the FT/HT world and the Labrador breed with two litters.

    The sport has lost a wonderful and passionate Man. His legacy will be carried by the fine animals he owned and bred. He owned both the 2005 Canadian and American National winners as puppies. His stories about the dogs and his carrier as a Sub-Mariner will stay with Me forever.

    John was a wealth of knowledge in the dog game. He will be missed greatly by those that knew him. I am glad I got to hear some of his stories.
