Oakley - 6 yo soft coated wheaten terrier. As many people on this board will attest, he is a living teddy bear.
I also have a soft coated wheaten. Best dog a person could every ask for. And the teddy bear analogy is perfect.
She is seriously the sweetest dog ever and fantastic around the kids (5 & 2) they pull her ears push on her jump on her and she just takes it and just asked to be petted in return.
I had never heard of the breed until my wife came home one day raving about this dog one one of her students had. She wouldnt shut up about it for months so I finally broke down and bought her one. Now, the dog and I are best friends. I dont think we will ever have another breed. Not only are they friendly to everyone and adorable, but they dont shed!!!
The no shedding was a huge part of our decision as well. They are known as the hypo-allergenic dog.
Her name is Daisy
Our neighbors had a Wheaton named "Miles". Strange dog--wouldn't play fetch or even try to catch a ball/frisbee. Just stood there looking at you as if he was above all that.
Anyway, it turns out all the pups in his litter ended up with some congenital kidney disease. He survived longer than his siblings, but had to be put down about age 4 or 5. Apparently, the kidney problem is common in Wheatons.
