Dorothy Nickles, the great and apparently ageless and tireless all-rounder AKC judge, passed away this afternoon at the age of 99.
My lovely bride spoke with her at a show just a couple of years ago. Miss Nickles was complaining that she didn’t have enough judging assignments to keep herself busy. Another time, a fat, loudmouthed steward was complaining that her knees hurt. Dorothy, well into her 90s and having spent all day on her feet, snapped, “Oh, just get them operated on!”
Quite a woman. Quite a life. Try to get some rest, Dorothy.
