It is with deep sadness that I share this information with you.

On July 9 2018 my friend Linda Shaw was taken much too early in life by cancer.

I am at a loss and find this very difficult.

There were four people that knew of her passing and we all respected her last wishes for this most personal event to be held private.

This post is to end speculation and rumours which were starting to appear .

Linda had so much to yet to do , dreams to fill .

Her book - first and second edition The Illustrated Standard for the
German Shepherd Dog will stand the test of time and be one of the best
refernce books on the breed.

a very big loss . Rest in Peace my friend

Hopefully Linda's legacy will carry on and her book be allowed to stay in print. I am fortunate to have a piece of her fantastic artwork, her sketch of Karlo.

My thoughts are with her friends who were loyal to her in her battle. Rest in Peace Linda J. Shaw.

This hit me hard. What a tremendous loss for the breed. She was such a kind, patient, and helpful woman. She answered many of my questions and helped to shape my picture of the breed. Rest in peace Linda.

I'm really sorry to hear that, and I'm sorry for the loss of your friend.

I learned a lot from her illustrations and commentary on them.

I am so sorry to read this; what a great loss. My deep condolences to you, Carmen, and to all of her loved ones. If it helps, think of all the GSDs waiting to greet and thank her at the 'Bridge.
