Call Name: Ricky

Achievements: Ricky is a chip off the “old block”. Whenever I find myself missing his father (who was my very special “heart dog”), I look at Ricky and his actions remind me very much of Patrick. Ricky is very much a clown at heart and loves to bask in the limelight.  While Ricky enjoys dabbling in various performance venues, his favorite activity is chasing tennis balls and would do that all day if given a chance. Now an old man, Ricky find himself getting into mischief, doing things like and raiding the refrigerator (I have installed a bungee cord system to prevent him!) and getting things off the cupboard! Food is definitely his best friend. He earned his TKN (novice trick dog title) just shy of his 14th birthday–a title that suits him well!
