Every once in a while an animal will enter your life that changes the whole game. Doug was that animal to us, he was a dear friend and loyal companion. He was a top show dog, and an outstanding producer. He always gave me his all. Though he had a soft sweet temperament, he would have walked through fire for me. A few weeks ago he fell ill with a vicious respiratory infection, despite being treated and hospitalized he got worse and worse till we had no choice but to decide not to let him suffer anymore. This loss brought us to our knees and has torn a huge whole in our hearts and in our kennel. He will forever live on through his outstanding get and in our hearts. We will always try to continue to do right by him, and make him proud. We will always love you Doug, rest in peace my friend.
