October 2009
Not being one to "toot my own horn", I have left out many of my accomplishments. 
Recently, the American Dog Breeders Assoc. honored me in asking me to be lead judge in their Invitational Show in Utah, the first of it's kind.  Having judged dogs and horse shows for over 30 years I didn't think there was much new stuff for me.  I was wrong.
This was a wonderful exercise, and teaching new judges was more interesting and fun than I could have imagined. 
I became a CGC evaluator about a year ago by the AKC.  This allows me to help American Pit Bull Terrier rescues and local all breed rescues.  The American Dog Breeders Assoc. has certified me as a Safe Dog Program evaluator, something I am very excited about and plan to do soon.  Being able to help people in this breed and others has become a major focus in my life.
Our dogs have also done remarkable things.  From getting a CGC, to Ace weight pull titles to therapy dog titles, to conformation show titles, this breed and our dogs in particular are becoming the dog of choice for trainers and families.  Our program helps to get these dogs in the hands of Law Enforcement and Military people that could not otherwise afford a well bred dog.  We are proud of our commitment to the breed and to the service people that protect us.
Having years of Humane work in my resume (I held the position of foreman at the Manhattan A.S.P.C.A. shelter in N.Y.C.), having been on the Board of Directors for the Walton County Humane Society, and currently doing what I can to help a local breed rescue, I understand the need for education and for raising the standard of care for our breed.
Marcel and I are also lucky enough to lead the youth of today in Boy Scouting.  I never thought I would be a Boy Scout, let alone the Committee Chair of a Troop (Marcel is the Scoutmaster) or a Black Belt.  Funny how things go.
