    I'm so sorry for your loss. You've joined a large, unfortunate club of RTF'ers who've lost our beloved dogs to that horrible disease. It really sucks. Hold on to the good memories.

    Very sorry for you Arnie , I appreciated and still appreciate the devotion and dedication you have for your pups , I've missed seeing your jeep at prado all loaded up with wingers and dogs.

    You and Gage in my opinion where what hunt test were supposed to be , a man and his dog , training when and where they could to meet the challenges of the next test.

    RIP Gage

    Take care and God bless Arnie

    My condolences. It's an extraordinary connection when it's one you whelped, that was sharing air with you from day 1. You were fortunate to have had each other in your lives.

    Arnie,
    I know the pain in your heart seems like it will last forever, but here's hoping the pain subsides to make room for all of those wonderful memories that you and Gage had together. I am so sorry. RIP Gage! Sounds like you were one of the best.

    Arnie, I'm very sorry for your loss of Gage. They just aren't with us long enough. Cancer is terrible.
