Welcome to the October/November issue of The Working/Herding Dog Digest. 

Glad to see the hot days of Summer are well behind us with the onset of Fall my favorite season of the year. Time for lots of National Specialties–And we are going to all of them. 

They really do grow up so fast. Seems like just yesterday Remy Smith Lewis was a junior handler. And now he is recently married to the love of his life, Karissa Chapman. I wish this beautiful couple decades of laughter and joy. 

Michael Shepherd suffered a heart attack while at the Oklahoma shows-luckily his amazing right arm: Dottie James was fast thinking and got him next door to the Fire Station where he was attended to right away and rushed to a nearby hospital. 

Glad to report Mr. Michael is already back in the ring better than ever. 

Our very own Leah James suffered a bad fall at the airport and has been bed ridden on the mend ever since. Causing her to miss a few Ring Stewarding and Judging assignments. Get better soon dear Leah. 

Wonderful to have Wendy Sorrell back on our hardworking team here at The Working/Herding Dog Digest . Wendy’s steadfast dedication and loyalty to her clients knows no equal. Welcome back my dear friend, you have been missed by many. 

Our next issue is the last one of 2018 – in it we highlight the hard working Owner-Handlers and is distributed all week of the A.K.C. National Championship in Orlando, Florida in December. 

Contact me to reserve a page in this very special issue. 

That’s all for now, I’ll see you at the shows!
