26-09-2019: It is with the greatest sorrow that we received the sad news yesterday that Gert Müller passed away on Wednesday 25 September 2019 at 1400. We shall remember Gert as a loyal friend and a colourful figure who translated his love for his dogs and for the work with dogs into concrete results, not only for himself, but for everyone whose life he touched. Gert has like no other contributed generously to give all of us in the retriever community many unique moments with dogs – as an instructor, as a judge, field trial organiser, assistant… and not least when he participated in the festiveness with incomparable showmanship and spread sunshine as the singing dog handler. As an elite handler, Gert has shown us the way with no less than two dogs at top level, DKJCH DKBRCH SJCH Shootdog Cita and DKBRCH DKJCH NOJCH SEJCH NORDJCH 2EV2010 3UM2008 Ravensbank Swift (Swiffer)
. But in Gert’s view, all his dogs were top dogs, and everyone who saw Gert handle his dogs on a shoot couldn’t help but deeply admire the calmness and efficiency that marked Team Gert. A truly great person and a gigantic personality in the dog community is no more. We will always remember him.
Our thoughts go out to Vita and to Gert’s family.
