He might be the only dog to have two threads posted simultaneously on GRF. Maybe the moderators would combine this one with Hank's?

I think a dog of this stature is well served with two threads. One in the Rainbow Bridge section and the the other in the Field section.

One thing that really gets me sentimental is that Speaker was alive so long as to be one of my Grampa Joe's favorite goldens, and my grandfather passed away in 2004. Now that is a long life& career for a dog!

Speaker was a handsome and incredibly talented dog, and he was a very influential sire - his contributions to the breed are indeed impressive.

He lived a grand 15 years... RIP, Mr. Speaker.

A member of my breed club came back from Indiana just recently with an adorable red-headed Speaker grandson. What a nice pedigree--she is hoping to not only get working titles, but also a CCA--structure has the potential.

My condolences to the owners and breeders; his legacy will live on thru his talented kids and grandkids.

Speaker's influence will be felt for many generations. He was a very nice dog. I have trained several Speaker kids and it's clear that a lot of Speaker comes through.

RIP Speaker you had a long ride and you left your mark on the world.

Okay, I just watched that tribute, and tears spilled down my face into my coffee cup! (It's 4:24 am).
