I know some of the retriever folks on the east coast will remember Vito Angelone of Heartland Retrievers. I just learned that, after a 2 yr battle with cancer, Vito passed away today.
I remember when I was first running Master, many years ago, Vito invited me to Winchester, Va. to train with him. He was a talented retriever trainer with a cool personality! I still have photos that his wife, Carrie, took of me, Del and Echo hanging on my wall. I will long remember Vito!
My sincere condolences to Vito's family, especially his girls who he loved dearly.
