    Default The Dog world lost a good one today............

    The Mule 3/2/2001 – 7/6/2013
    GRHRCH UH Just Ducky’s Justforkicks OCH 06, 08, 09
    UKC/HRC 2500 point club
    CBSRC Champion Hunter
    Amazing personality, absolutely loved his work, the most honest retriever, perfect gentleman in the house, and just an all- around great dog.
    Mule showed his talents early, as a pup would sit facing the pond, waiting for someone to throw a bumper so he could fetch it up. He never considered anything except the straightest route to and from his birds no matter what obstacles were in his path, and running the bank was not an option. He lived to hunt birds and was just as incredible on upland birds as he was on waterfowl.
    His personality endeared him to all he met, so sweet yet so funny when he would vocalize, trying to talk you into playing some more. If you ignored him he would toss a bumper at your feet, back up and look at you as if to say, “Are you going to throw it or not?”
    Mule was the first Boykin spaniel to earn the Grand Hunting Retriever title and is the only spaniel in the HRC 2500 point club.
    He won the Boykin Spaniel Society National Open Championship three times. Even when his health started to fail him his heart let him play and at age 12 competed in CBSRC club trials earning the Champion Hunter title.
    I miss that sweet, sweet boy.

    So sorry Pam. What a great dog and what a journey the two of you had. Heaven must have needed a perfect Boykin. My condolences.
