Terri Gavaletz' Slim Shady has passed.

"We recently lost my heart dog, Slim Shady, age 9 1/2, GCH Jokuba-Kazor's The Way I Am, BISS, Eukanuba National Champion 2007, Eukanuba Award of Excellence 2008. 

Slim is sire of Audrey, Kisa, and Strider. He sired a litter two days before he died of a rapid, virulent pneumonia, cause unknown. He has posthumously become an Honor Roll Stud Dog. He is greatly missed to say the least."

Natalie and Harry and Hannah and Obike welcomed Nicholas! Born May 2 - Nicholas Robert Culver. 8 lbs. 10 oz.
"What a Mother's Day, with 5-day old Nicholas Robert. an amazing baby, doing things at less than a week that Hannah couldn't until 3 to 4 months. And so far no spit up/reflux (yay less laundry!!!) & some 3 & 4 hr sleeps at night. I don't want to jinx us but so far he is exponentially easier to care for than Hannah. & as always we wish big-brother James in heaven could be here with us..."

Brenda Phillip's Nike got a Novice FAST Q, with a 1st Place!

Susan Marsicano's Liner ran undefeated both days at the GSG's LGRA meet. He was Best of Breed both days for 6 National pts.

In Memoriam:

The Chodock's Beck has passed. Apu Beck And Call.
13 December 2000 ~ 29 June 2016

"Our beloved Beck crossed the rainbow bridge on June 29 at 15 1/2 years old.  Even in his advanced age we would get stopped almost every time we went out for a walk by people who would ask what type of dog he was and how old our 'puppy' was. 

Like all basenjis he had his mischievous streak but he'd always give you that look, 'what me?'.  We miss his wagging donut and the jingling of his tags on his collar."

Beck and Hudson
