Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

Billy,
Let's hope for the best for a wonderful old friend. If you have a religion, pray. If you don't, pray anyway it can't hurt anything.

20 years ago Joe told me that he had 7 dogs (one at a time), all terriers and all named Lucky.

He used the same publicity photo for years, the above photo is
50/60's.

When I asked why he doesnt get the photo updated he responded, "Why? I look the same and the dog looks the same."
