It is with great sadness that I inform the RCV membership of the passing of Helen Sampsonidis. Helen, along with her adoring husband Nick, have been involved with the Rottweiler for many decades as owners and breeders. Together they organised the RCV obedience for many years and ran classes from Doncaster, Templestowe and KCC Park, where Helen loved instructing the puppy class.

Her love of Rottweilers and training saw her invite strangers that were having troubles with their dogs to her house nearly every weekend for a coffee, scones and some socialisation with their pets. At times there were 6-10 dogs and their owners gathered at their house, where she treated every body the same. With warmth, love and understanding both the dogs and people concerned not only got better and improved but many of them became friends. Helen always had this knack for making friends, as she was a caring, kind, magnetic person and people wanted to be friends with her.

Helen unfortunately battled cancer and the debilitating effects of treatment for many years.

Our sincere condolences go out to Nick, their son Andrew and daughter-in-law Jess. Rest in Peace Helen, surrounded by your beloved Rottweilers. πŸΎπŸ’œ
