I got Scoobi, my family weren't dog-lovers at all; they often
couldn't understand how some people cried when their dogs died or ran
away or whatever. Scoobi has made them realise how wonderful dogs are
as pets and friends, and all of us love him very much.
He is incredibly intelligent (got full marks for the intelligence test
in Dr Stanley Cohen's book "The Intelligence of Dogs"), faithful and
loving, and he makes all of us look forward to coming home because we
know the wonderful greeting we'll get as soon as we walk through the
door. He has been going to obedience training since he was about 6
months old, and he is the best jumper and most obedient dog in the
advanced class. He has also come in the top three in every obedience
competition he has entered.
He is extremely energetic and loves to play. On numerous occassions he
has attracted a large audience when playing cricket with me on beaches,
fields or any other places I take him. He loves chasing his tennis
ball, and that is how he plays cricket: he fetches the ball when it has
been hit away, and he knows which person to take it back to (whoever the
bowler is). He is the ultimate companion and he comes with us just
about everywhere we go, and he even gets birthday and Christmas presents.
Out of the many photos I have of Scoobi, I chose this one, because he
looks as though he is smiling at the camera. For more photos of Scoobi, visit
