White House --Bo's Trainer Dies

Dawn Sylvia-Stasiewwicz has sadly passed away at the age of 52. She was the trainer that trained the Obama's dog Bo. I remember how modest she was in her email that she sent me ,after I had congratulated her on getting this prestigious assignment. She was an outstanding member of our IAABC. Here's the article in the Washington Post. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...011406691.html

So sad. The cause of death sounds mysterious.

Seems as if she had a tough life. Her 17 year old daughter was killed in a tragic car accident in 2006.
Very sad...
