|As many of you may have heard, long-time DPCA member E. A. “Skip” Thielen passed away earlier this week. The entire DPCA family offers our deepest condolences to Joyce and Skip’s extended family. In recognition of Skip’s many contributions to the Club and especially his assistance as Chief Steward at the National for many years, the Board voted to dedicate the 2023 National to Skip. |
Skip gave back to his beloved breed in so many ways: breeder, judge, Chapter Club President, and National Chief Steward. His smile, infectious good humor, and generous spirit will be sorely missed.
