Skidboot Exits the Stage
One of the latest in a long line of dogs that bore the title Amazing, 14-year-old Skidboot has gone on to that big dog ranch in the sky. The Australian blue heeler/kelpie mix, who made a name for himself with a winning performance on Animal Planet's Pet Star, as well as appearances on Oprah and at the Texas State Fair, was euthanized on March 25. Skidboot's people, David and Barbara Hartwig, suggest memorializing the talented dog with a donation to your local animal shelter. A worthy remembrance indeed.
