Mary Rodgers

Hi, my name is Cindy Henry. I just received the sad news that my best friend and employer, Mary M. Rodgers passed away in Hamilton Mt December of last year. I wanted to post and say that Mary was the best, sweetest and most loving person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She was the greatest dog breeder, the best at show,and she loved each and every dog she ever owned as tenderly and lovingly as if it were her own child. I became a better person loving her, working for her and being loved by her. My one regret is I did not get to give her a hug and kiss and tell her I loved her with all my heart. Someday I will get to meet her again, until I meet you again Mary my love , may Jehovah smile when he hears your name or thinks of you.Good bye my love, rest easy until we meet again. Love forever and always, your devoted friend. Cindy Henry 😭😢

I never had a discussion with her, but have watched her judge at the National. For sure she was an icon in the breed, and will be remembered as such.

I'm pretty sure that there was a really nice post a while back (6 months ago?) about her passing. Everyone had very nice things to say. Never met her... My loss.

Thank you Cindy, for bringing this to our attention.

I only met her briefly at the nationals two years ago. She was so knowledgeable! I've also heard many stories about her and having files upon files of different pedigrees and she knew them all.... She's an icon to this breed and a game changer as well. The breed and it's breeders will be forever grateful to her.

Yeah, John, the information about Mary's death was posted here and on other Dobe sites--mostly on Facebook.

Only because I'm older than dirt I met Mary when she was just starting out with her first dogs--as all good breeders do she learned for all of the years she bred and showed dogs.

Basically a nice lady.
