The dog show world is awesome
Tuesday a young lady, Taylor Lane was murdered in her home along with her boyfriend and her Doberman, Audrey, was shot twice and severely wounded trying to defend her. They set up a Go Fund Me to help with funeral costs and for the veterinary fees for Audrey. The goal was 15,000. In one day it reached 32,000.
When I had my house fire the dog show world rallied to help me. It was around 1 am I think when they finally had the fire out and we left. We lost everything, including some of my dogs. At 8 am the next morning I got a call that a friend here in the states had worked with another in Europe and I had kennels, crate pads, toys, dog food and coop cups that would be there by the end of the day. And that was only the beginning of the help my dog show friends and family gave me.
Taylor grew up in the dog show world. And that world is truly a family as seen by the response. She showed Dobermans and often traveled with others to help show. She was only in her early twenties, the same as my two youngest. Her sister, Tara, shows often and some of you may have seen the sisters. It's heartbreaking when something like this happens, especially when you know them. I didn't personally know Taylor, but I've seen her at shows, always with a smile. RIP, Taylor.
