Default A moment to remember Jerry Cudahy

Some of my most memorable moments in training dogs were the years spent at the Stouffville farm home of Jerry Cudahy and his wife Eva .
Jerry was a character . That is the best way to sum him up. His farm was the home of one of the first , and in my opinion best , French Ring training clubs . Our club held trials and invited French trainers and Cheryl Carlson from Detroit , and held Canada's first campagne trial . So many broiling hot days, so many pouring rain, muddy fields , frozen days -- and yet out we were training .

He was an excellent decoy. One of the best . He could read a dog . He was nimble and had finesse and would keep the dog on his toes with his quick movements in the esquive .
He loved his dogs , as dogs , and they him .

Best known for Rocky , the malinois who in 1992 was the first Canadian trained dog to win the North American French Ring Grand Championship, a dog that I knew well.

Boy that feels like a lifetime ago.

We had not seen each other for years and today with great sadness and heavy heart , remembering the fun , the adventure, the humour , the worn out sweaty people dropped on his living room floor and furniture, the after training sessions at the local greasy spoon , that Jerry Cudahy and his wife Eva , tragically were killed in a house fire . This was reported in our Toronto Star GTA front page .

Still seeing Jerry's child like amused smile --

what can you say , what can you do . Rest in peace and thanks for the memories .

That is tragic...and the owners of the dogs boarded...I'm so sad for them
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
