For those of you who have been involved in showing poodles for many years, I am sorry to tell you that Frank Sabella is no longer able to judge. I had asked him to judge our poodle specialty (Enchanted Poodle Club) in May - and he was also scheduled to judge a number of breeds at Rio Grande Kennel Club the next two days. Yesterday I received a letter from him saying that his doctor told him he must not fly any more due to heart problems.
Frank is probably the most knowledgeable judge of poodles living today. It's really sad that he is having to give up judging. He was the top poodle handler of all time before retiring to become a judge. You can find pictures of him in most poodle books.
