    I was fortunate enough to know Mr Edwards, an was a friend of his. Spent many of night at his farm helping with various things concerning his dogs, the love he held for them as well as his many other pets he had is hard to find in todays times. The knowledge that he shared with me.. helped to seal the passion in my own self when it comes to the bully breed... an its a sad thing to hear that he has passed. My only regret is that over the years we lost contact as I moved to far away to really visit him like I wanted.. he will be missed an remembered as one the greatest dogmen of all time.
