Debbie Wright

It is with deep sorrow that we advise that Debbie Wright (Whippets) passed away yesterday afternoon, Jan 13th, 2019. Her husband Kevin just called me to let me know and I promised I would let dog people know of this sad happening. I know a lot of people knew her. I would really appreciate you letting others know as well, especially Whippet enthusiasts.

Funeral Service will be held in the chapel on Friday January 18th, at 11 a.m.

In memoriams to the Canadian Cancer Society, Brockville & District Hospital Foundation ( Palliative Care Unit ) or The Heart & Stroke Foundation will be gratefully acknowledged by the family. Visit a Book of Memories at: www.judsonfuneralhome.ca

As you are aware at a previous OKC Memberís meeting we had Kim Knapp from Canadian Dogs Last as our presenter. She provided some excellent insight into rescue dogs entering Canada. She has graciously provided an article, written by a OVC vet, regarding Viruses that we are sure you will find interesting.
