Our thoughts and prayers are with you Mary in this time of such great loss.
Dave was such a positive gentle presence in everything he did always putting others and the Welfare of the dogs first and uncompromising
We learned from him that hard work and striving for the best and good with a positive tribe around was the real success and happiness that bred such peace in our hearts Just knowing we did everything we needed to do and should be doing was enough and we celebrate time well spent on a job well done and that peace in our hearts knowing everything is alright


Today myself and my family celebrate Dave. A most precious and special human being with a lifetime of work and contribution to a world of dogs he so loved and athough we will treasure all the memories of him at the same time we will just miss him so much because we know the world and particularly the dog world will not be so bright or feel so full without him

May the essence of him be a lasting mark of him all around us everywhere every day for as long as we live.
And in the end as in the beginning it is LOVE.


Pax vobiscum
Dominique and Susanne and all the Paws X
