Our dear friend Daniel Conicelli

It is with great sadness that we convey the passing of our dear friend and a wonderful supporter of the German Shorthaired Pointer breed..........

Dan dearly loved his family, his friends and his wonderful shorthairs.
He was an active sportsman, a friend to the environment and he had a great love for nature and the outdoors. Hunting was his passion among many other activities that he enjoyed and the sport has lost a staunch supporter in his passing.

He will be dearly missed by his wonderful family and by those of us who were blessed to have him in our lives as a friend.
Surely his beautiful Cortina has lost her best hunting partner and "sofa buddy" and she'll miss his presence in her life as devoted dogs so often do.
These wonderful dogs mourn just as we do and sometimes I think they have the innate ability to accept the loss of their master far easier than those of us who are simply human.

God bless and keep you, Dan, and may you now walk the beautiful and richly abundant fields of heaven with the wonderful shorthairs who went before you and have waited for your return.

Rest in peace, beloved friend.

Steve 's Hunt Test Judging Certification

Steve Has AKC Hunt Test Judging Credentials Updated and Certified

Saturday................ June 4, 2009

Steve attended a recent seminar sponsored by the Schuykill Valley GSP Club at Cabela's in Hamburg, PA. This seminar provided the opportunity for re-certification and qualification for both current and new hunt test judges approved by the AKC. Steve now has his credentials updated and certified as the new requirements and rules handed down by the American Kennel Club dictate.

The seminar was taught by AKC Field Representative, Gary Sadler, and it was extremely informative and allowed all current judges as well as new applicants to understand the new requirements for attaining Junior, Senior and Master Hunter titles in the field venue. Steve indicated that the attendance was very good and should provide many AKC clubs with the opportunity to have a good choice in seeking qualified judges to be a part of their seasonal events and hunt tests.
