My friend Laura Kling was involved in a car accident while driving home from the Collie National. I hope this hard working lady is up and around and back to normal real soon.

The dog world has lost one of it’s all time greats with the passing of  J.D. Jones. The epitome of a Southern gentleman, Don Judged the Herding Groups at Westminster and Best In Show in 2008. Atlanta will never be the same. Rest in peace Mr. Jones.

My wonderful club that I am so proud to be a member of The North Georgia Working Group Assoc. is having back to back shows on October 17th, make sure you put us on your calendar and come to Atlanta for a quality packed day filled with beautiful Working Dogs and respected Judges.

Really looking forward to my Judging at the Carolina Working Group Assoc on May 30th. I’m Judging the Veteran and Puppy Sweeps groups. I just cant wait to get my hands on our greats of yesterday and future hopefuls as well.

A BIG congratulations to “Amaze” The Siberian Husky bitch for becoming the top winning Siberian Husky in Breed History with her 61st Best In Show awarded by Anne Marie Taylor. To her owners,breeder and handlers applause, applause on putting your gorgeous red head in the history books. Next stop....PUPPIES!

Our next issue is our hot, hot June/July Issue-please contact me today at 678-759-1601 to reserve a great page in this special issue.

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