    When Nancy Lerch and I traveled to Chicago in winter to breed Whisper to Sebastian, Anthony was so gracious and very complimentary of Whisper. “Thank you for bring this beautiful bitch to my dog”
    Whisper produced Stryker who was bred to Rayna who produced Emma who was owned by Ray and Adam. Thank you Anthony!

    I have known Anthony for 60 years.
    He was an different sort of guy always, younger and older.
    He was really a good hearted person, not always easy, but a good friend with many good qualities.
    Most of our inner circle would describe him as β€œ the ultimate piece of work.”
    He was truly different then anyone I have ever met.
    He had successful show Great Danes who are in The Hall Of Fame.
