Never has a dog been so aptly named...
BobDog is the epitome of the Wheaten male...sweet, affectionate and just not too bright. A lovely headed guy, he turned out to be moderate in size and all boy.
BobDog finished his championship just a couple of weeks after his first birthday, entirely owner-breeder-handled by John.
He is now living with his friend, Carol, on her farm in PA...where as you can see, he's made some special friends...and loving it! We're proud of them for achieving Rally Advanced, Therapy Dog Advanced, Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and Therapy Dog International (TDI) certifications and using his training in local nursing facilities and with a school reading program. In the first-ever Wheaten AKC Herding Event on April 9th, Bob was the first Wheaten to qualify!
BobDog and Carol's therapy dog work was honored with the 2012 SCWTCA Wheaten Ambassador Award. Their participation in a local reading program has also drawn notice; we were all touched by the story of a young boy they worked with who was unwilling to read aloud in English at the start of the school year…and by the end was reading to BobDog.
Used sparingly at stud, he boasts a champion son, Bonnie O’Connor’s, CH Duidream’s Rogue Runner Escapade (“Beeper”)…and our fingers are crossed he will not be the only one.
We're looking forward to seeing what this great team continues to accomplish...and as we always say, "BobDog is in Paradise, literally and figuratively." He's the luckiest dog...and so are we!
