Bob loves when his buddy Brandon comes for a sleepover with him!
Bob at 1&1/2 years winning Best In Specialty Show!
Bob entered the world as the only male and only blue in my first litter. Since I had decided that I wanted a blue boy he became Mr. Right. Bob is the first Pintado Champion. He finished his CKC Ch at just over 1 year, then at 1&1/2 years went on to win Best Of Breed at the Australian Shepherd Club of Ontario Specialty show in 1996. Bob was not only the first Canadian Bred aussie to win BOB at a Canadian specialty, but also the first owner handled. Bob is also the first CKC Specialty winner to sire a CKC Specialty winner. When Bob matured I took him to some AKC shows and finished his Ch from the Bred by Exhibitor classes. Bob excelled at the herding clinics we attended, but sadly sheep are not allowed in the city.
With great sadness today we had to let Bob go. Bob was diagnosed with a large tumour just before New Year's, the vet was not sure he would make it past New Year's weekend, but he did. He has spent the past 10 months getting more spoiled than ever, never missing a meal or a cookie, and just being kept as comfortable as he possibly could. The events of the past few weeks, as well as the progression of his disease had taken a toll on him, making life too uncomfortable to allow him to bear it longer.
Bob was the only male from my first litter of Aussies, he was my first homebred CKC Ch, as well as my first AKC Ch (entirely from the bred by class), he was my first BISS winner, and the first Canadian Bred aussie to win a CKC Specialty show. He loved to show, thought that everyone was clapping for him, did not matter what ring they were actually at... Years ago when I took him to a herding clinic, he would work the sheep, then look at the other participants, trot past them just to hear their applause and laughs, then go back to the sheep. Bob always loved to make everyone laugh, was in the middle of every joke.
Bob's greatest joy arrived 6 years ago. From the first time my nephew came to visit, Bob decided that he would be Brandon's best friend. When Bradon was just a baby, Bob would sit close to him, although not sure what that small creature was, Bob was sure that he loved that baby. Brandon would grab Bob's ears and poke him in the eye, Bob would just grin. When Brandon came to visit, Bob would follow him everywhere, I am sure it was not just for the trail of food that a toddler leaves behind either... By the time Brandon was 3 he would call Bob his best friend... I think that becoming Brandon's best friend was Bob's greatest achievement!
So farewell my "Buddy Bear", I miss you!
