RIP Irishwhistler

Sad to say Irishwhistler passed away recently. I had Mike Enright to my home a few times for fall gatherings. Great sportsman and dog trainer. He will be missed at next years gathering. legacy.com has an obituary if you’re so inclined.
My doctor said drinking heavily can lead to a slow death. I said good, I'm not in any hurry.

I know our small group of guys that got together back on October 10th were impressed when treated to an impromptu retriever demonstration at my home. It was truly impressive. His labs were amazing. I’m gonna miss seeing that again. I’m also gonna miss all the emails with Mike showing off his photography prowess. Always great images and even better descriptions of them. A good guy and steward of hunting and conservation. I raise a Guinness to you Mike.

Very sorry to read this news... I always enjoyed his narrative and the great photos he shared. I could tell early on Mike really loved his dogs, and that makes a huge impression on me. Fair winds and following seas 'Irish. We'll miss you around here...
