Meet Whiplash's Friends
The dogs that work with Whiplash are a special breed of animal; many
have come from Scotland and England. They are born to herd sheep and goats, but like any youngster
they have to develop this natural talent. They are the happiest when
they are able to herd a flock and gather them into a pasture or pen.
The dogs that perform with Whiplash are the best of the best in the
Tommy trains each dog; helping them develop at their own rate. Each
is born with a natural talent, it is up to Tommy to help each
develop that talent and become a star. Performing in front of an
audience with all the noise and distractions is not easy. They must
give their full attention to the task at hand.
But what makes them happy also brings joy to audiences
everywhere. If you look closely, you may see a smile on their face
when the sheep are finally rounded up. Tommy rewards them with a
treat and a well earned pat on the head.
Let’s meet them:
Ben – He was the daddy of the group.
Born is Scotland, this Border collie had been a member the
Tommy Lucia family since he was two. He will go down in history as
one of the greatest dogs we have ever had the pleasure to work with.
He had an attitude matched only by Whiplash, the heart of a
lion. He was the most loyal and courageous dog ever. We are sure
that he is looking down on Tommy, Whiplash and the others every time
Bud – He is a true Texan,
happy go lucky. He also joined the Tommy Lucia family when he was
two. A talented sheep
dog, his trademark is following the sheep up the ramp to make sure
they go where they were supposed.
The first time he did this, the audience went wild, he has
been doing it ever since.
Toby – He is the newest
member of the family. He
is coming along, becoming a star in his own right.
He loves to jump and play during his free time. Look for him
to become a fan favorite in the years to come.
