| A Message From Pat Long
I know Joye gives these tickets away, but she gives them away when she’s happy too! What makes her happy? When people donate to Berner charities, or donate to Berner charities to thank other people for their hard work. It makes her happy when Berners benefit from our generosity, and Joye must be about the happiest person I know – because no one is as generous as the Bernese Mountain Dog community!
I was the Berner-Garde File Manager for 12 years, and I know how much of a labor of love it is for so many of you. Updates that were terribly painful as well as many that were joyful and exciting, thanks to each and every one of you for adding your dogs to a legacy that helps the future of the breed! YOU are all what help to make this open database unique among all the breeds, thank you one and all!
And for those of you who participate in the BMD DNA Repository – thank you! And for those of you who have donated tumor tissue, words are not enough – but thank you for making the effort during the worst possible time.
Hug your dogs and tell them I think they are so very lucky to have the most special owners!
