This 2008 National Retriever Championship is Dedicated to Tony Snow...

...His untimely passing was completely unexpected; he has definitely been missed during this National for his eloquence, his wit, his deep laugh and booming voice, and most of all, his passion for the sport.

On Wednesday night at the Worker's Party, National Field Trial Chairman Mike Kammerer presented an award of appreciation meant for Tony to his gracious wife, Jan. As much a part of Nationals as Tony, everyone, including myself, was deeply moved to see Jan in attendance, but as she summed up, "It's what Tony would have done if the situation was's what he would want." Godspeed to Tony and our love and support remain with Jan.
