Sympathy to Lynn and Jonathan Halpern, who lost Dickens quite suddenly to lymphoma at age 8. He was active in Rally and Obedience until just two weeks before his passing.

Bob Swanson's Daisy passed away in July at age 5. Bob discusses his loss in the newsletter's "President's Letter."

Memorial to Cassidy

Fragile Circle

We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, 

live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.

Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. 

We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan.
