Update  11/23/16:  Paul had exploratory surgery yesterday at Scott & White Hospital because of a hole either in the stomach or colon.  Paul needs our thoughts and prayers

11/22/16:  Paul Holland has been hospitalized since before the finals.  His conditional is not improving and is being transferred from Providence Hospital in Waco to Scott & White in Temple.  Paul had radiation about 25 years ago and damage to tissues is now showing up so surgery is required to help repair the damage.  He was so disappointed that he had to miss the finals.  He will be in Temple for about another week.  He needs our support.

11/22/16:  Sammy Long judged the TSDA Finals along with Colin Gordon returned home on Nov. 16th and on Thursday he was rushed to the hospital with a heart attack.  We learned today that two stents were required, is stable and expected to recover soon.  He showed no signs of health problems and certainly enjoyed our food (steak) while he was here.  Listed below is his mailing address.  Know he would enjoy a card and note from Texas handlers.  He stated several times he was impressed with Texas dogs and handlers.
