and the silence is broken! Sorry for the lack of updates over the long, cold winter, but updating the website took a back seat to a personal loss. My wonderful Uncle Mike (Michael H. Helberg) passed away in January after a long series of health battles. Uncle Mike was one of a kind and lived his life to the fullest, leaving nothing left undone. His generosity, thirst for knowledge, love of people and zest for life made him larger than life. It was like someone sucked the air out of the room when he left us. We all miss him greatly.
Mitch, Kyle and the dogs had a fantastic winter down in Clermont, Florida, made doubly wonderful by the fact that I was able to join them and bring my mare, Stone. We have loved every minute of our time here. We would like to sincerely thank Wayne and Sharon Gey for their friendship and hospitality. We are blessed to know you and count you among our friends.
Stay tuned. I will be posting a long list of brags starting with some hunt test accomplishments and continuing with our great showing at the 2015 Flat-coated Retriever Society of America’s National Specialty.
