We will miss you Evelyn Stackpole!

If ever there was someone who poured their life into the dog world, it was Evelyn! She loved her dobes and her little chihuahua. She never stopped doing what she loved, even when her back hurt, her breathing was rough, she was out there tracking, going to obedience class, off to breed shows, agility shows. She was on the go all the time. She never missed obedience class unless her dogs were showing. She was there. Yesterday, she didn't show up. It is no surprise, but it is so very sad. She wasn't well this year. She touched so many people's lives, I can't imagine how they will have a service for her. It will be crowded, that's for sure.
Very few people love my Roscoe. Evelyn was one. Poor Roscoe has lost another of his few true loves. She truly loved him and saw the good in him. That's rare and I will never forget her confidence in us as a team.
She made me etched glasses with MinPins on them for our MinPin rescue raffles. I have some I will cherrish, always.
Such a sad loss.................she was a well loved person..................
