Welcome to general discussion!

Did your Britt make you laugh today? Did he do something so smart, you are blown away? Those puppy teeth causing you to tear up, and you need an outlet? Or do you want to post a picture of his or her latest point? This is the place for it!

The Fund has been established....this is how it will read:

*******The Dave Powers Memorial Fund (Powers Training Fund):

... Hero with a big heart. ABR icon. He left behind a legacy of pure love, dedication and countless happy hearts. He wasn't just a good man, but the best man. Dave was the biggest hero there was to all our dogs. The bar has been set so high, that we can only hope and try to approach his dedication and absolute giving heart. ...

Those are just a few of the comments made by those who gathered at the ABR message boards to grieve the loss of Dave Powers, long-time ABR Montana Coordinator. Dave provided his wisdom to readers of the ABR message boards, ABR volunteers, and other state coordinators. Dave was learning behavioral modification from Susan Overfield (www.overfieldkennel.com.) He sponsored Boss Dog clinics with Susan as fundraisers for ABR. His partner in rescue and wife, Diane, said that it was in this new knowledge he was learning that brought a huge twinkle in his eye and excited him the most.

Dave enjoyed seeing an unwanted and untrained Brittany bloom into a well mannered valued companion. The Dave Powers Memorial Fund provides funding for additional training and support to Brittanys who need to learn manners or basic obedience. The lifetime cap is $300 per dog on these funds. All funds must be applied for by the ABR foster or adoptive home. ******

:D :D
