Ranger The Boisterous Boston Terrier- The Original American Breed

Posted by admin on June 1, 2013 at 4:08 AM

Oh Boy! Oh Boy! I'm so excited to be featured in the Lifestyle Magazine. Actually, I'm usually excited about everything in life.

Hi readers! My name is Ranger Dotter and I am a three-year-old Boston Terrier. My folks and I moved here a year-and-a-half ago from Dallas. We love being in Kerrville and living in Comanche Trace! My favorite things include going on walks, playing with other dogs (cats, not so much), chewing on bones, toys, or anything else I can get my teeth on, napping in the sun, and getting my ears rubbed. My human parents, Alan and Lynn, take great care of me. They call me their little 15 pounds of fury.

Their favorite things are playing golf and participating in lots of activities in the neighborhood and community. They are both originally from Oklahoma. I’ve visited there, but this area is more to my liking. The deer and antelope are fun to stare at through the fence. I’m not allowed to chase them like I did the squirrels in Dallas. Since I can’t chase the deer and there is a pitiful lack of squirrels here, I amuse myself by chasing the tennis ball instead. Tennis balls do not hold a candle to my passion for tetherballs. I cannot describe the joy I felt when I discovered a ball on a string that I can hit by myself. The best part is it doesn’t end up outside the fence or under the furniture. The worst part is there are not very many of them around. Search for “Ranger” on the Lifestyle website, www.texaslifestyle.org, to see a video of my tetherball skills in action!

I love all my Comanche Trace neighbors and most seem to love me. I can be quite comical and my antics cause outbursts of laughter wherever I go. My breed, the Boston Terrier, is sometimes referred to as the “American Gentleman” since we look like we wear tuxedos. We were bred to be coach dogs. That is probably why I love riding in the golf cart with Dad and Mom. If you see us driving around, stop and say “hi”. I’m the black and white one with the floppy ears!

The Boston Terrier ... TRULY AN “ALL-AMERICAN” DOG! Following the Civil War, the Boston Terrier breed was developed in the stables of Boston, Massachusetts when William O’Brien of Boston sold an imported dog named “Judge” to Robert C. Hooper, also of Boston. This dog was commonly known as “Hooper’s Judge” and became the ancestor of almost all true modern Boston Terriers. The breed is an American creation, resulting from a cross between an English Bulldog and a white English Terrier. In 1891, the breed became known as Boston Terriers, taking the name of the city where they originated.
