I was sorry to learn of Karen's passing. I remember her from her early days with horses at the Picton fairgrounds barns. Her animals always brought her great pleasure. Have not seen her in many years but have often thought of the good times we had with our horses at the fairgrounds. I am sorry for your loss.

So very shortly after our chat about Karen, Ray...

Wishing Ejna, Pat and the rest of the family the very best memories.

I was telling our dog-passionate Foundation staff, Briar, today about Karen "training Lynn" to be a dog manager in Megan's obedience class. I also told her about me going after that trained Megan out into East Lake after she took off "celebrating after graduation". That water was cold! Briar found it hard to believe we were ever dog owners! But as I reflect, Karen gave us a relationship with that dog that was not to be missed - nor replaced it seems. I have the fondest memories around that experience - and today Karen made me smile.
hugs, Monica

Just finding out now about Karen's death.
I was fond of her and admired her amazing ability with animals. Poodle sweater with matching dog still makes me smile 40 years later!
Belated thoughts and prayers to all the family.
