The Mastiff community just suffered the loss of one of our greatest supporters, Dr. Robin M. Smith DVM passed away this week in Westminster MD. Doc Rob was skilled and dedicated vet that specialized in emergency medicine. She was also a devoted friend of the mastiff breeds and wrote many articles on their care and specific medical needs. I had the great fortune of having her as my emergency vet and she and her staff saved the lives of 3 of my dogs at various times. She also made her self available to other practitioners, breeders and owners who relied on her knowledge and dedication. She will be missed greatly.

I encourage all Mastiff owners, English, American, Bull etc to read her articles and appreciate what she contributed to the Mastiff Community.

So sorry to hear this.  While I haven't spoken with her in years, I do remember that she was always available to answer questions/help out fellow mastiff owners.  She will be missed.

I am sorry to hear this news.
Years ago, before you could find anything and everything online, she had taken the time to put up important information about anesthesia. Those pages are permanently attached to my dogs' folders at the vet. She was always generous with her time and I agree she will be missed.

I am sorry to read of Doc Robin's passing as well.  What a friend to the breed and a loss to the Mastiff community.  Thankfully folks still have her valuable articles, and I agree - putting them in the files section or storing them somewhere would be a wonderful idea and tribute!

I called the Carroll County Times and spoke with Sue at the news desk and she searched the archives back to September and found nothing.

What a terrible loss of someone so invaluable to this breed that benefitted so much from her research and knowledge!

Has anybody confirmed that this announcement is factual?  I wasn't able to find any information pertaining to it.  I just ask because I remember one time on a different board an assumption was made, a rumor followed and everybody thought a member of the mastiff community had passed away when that wasn't the case at all.

Jenn,
After reading your post I decided to call the clinic that she worked at since the phone # is on ALL of the articles that she did for us. 

They confirmed to me personally this morning that this is, in fact, true.
 
May she and Ranger now rest in peace.

If anyone discovers where to send condolences to the family or if donations can be made to a designated fund in her memory please post this info to the list. 

I know I would like to let her family know what she meant to me personally and to the breed.
