Todya my wife passed on some sad news, Lyle had called while I was competing at an event to say Big Two Hearted River passed away. February 21, 1999 - June 10, 2012.

Memory is still fresh as I persauded a buyer to look at taking her littermate instead of her because I felt she would be to much dog for him. Its ironic because I was not enough of a trainer for her. Fortunately Lyle and Debby could do what I could not.

My thoughts are with Lyle and Debby Steinman in there loss of River.

She was one heck of a dog. She will be missed by those that watched her run.

My sincere condolences to Lyle and family on the loss of a truly great champion. River was always a top performer no matter what the venue. River and Lyle was an amazing team and River will always be remembered with nothing but the highest regards and honor.

Thank you all for the many texts, emails & phone calls. River was truly one of the loves of my life her desire to please will never be matched. River loved retirement with Debby, River was deaf and commucated with Debby by sign language it was site to see them work together. River NEVER left Debby's side I mean NEVER. As we make the last drive towards home (from Maryland) with River it is the thought of leaving her (with the Vet) that is killing Debby & I. We were truly blessed that Daniel & Birgit let her share her life with my family.

Again words can not say enough of the out pouring of messages we have received.

Lyle,Debby,Katie & Amanda
