Welcome to the beautiful April/May issue of The Working/Herding Dog Digest!

We are so THRILLED with the way our new THE DOG DIGEST PODCAST is being received. This really is a dream come true for me as I have been wanting to do this show for more years than I care to admit. Now that it is a reality the real thing turns out is EVEN better than dreaming about it.

If you know of a Working or Herding Breeder-Handler-Judge that you would like to see interviewed don’t hesitate to drop me a line.

Our tight knit Dog World is mourning the loss of one of our greats, John Ronald of Samoyed Fame and one of the nicest guys you could ever meet passed away after suffering a fatal heart attack.

John and his wonderful wife Kathy truly epitomized a HAPPY COUPLE-always travelling to amazing places all around the World and Judging together at shows.

Like his many, many friends, I will miss his great smile and kind words of advice and encouragement. My prayers to his family and dedicated wife Kathy. Big hugs my dear friend.
