Since Bo is coming home today, I’m posting some pictures of Skippy when he was a puppy. Oh what a cute little terror he was…. These photos are at 3 months old – a bit younger than Bo.
I did some reading to see if Skippy is related to Bo. Here’s what I found:
Bo was breed by a kennel in Texas called Amigo.
Bo and Senator Kennedy’s new puppy, Cappy, (the Senator’s third Portie!) are from the same litter – brothers!
Bo’s parents are Ch. Amigo’s Phor What Its Worth (Penny) and Ch. Valkyrie’s Dr. Watson Is Here (Watson).
And, in searching Bo’s pedigree, I found that Skippy and Bo have great-great-grandparents in common. Sort of distant cousins. All US Portuguese water dogs are related somewhere, since they all came from a few dogs brought over from Portugal in the 50’s.
