Dog of the Day: Boo Radley the Chinese Crested/Australian Cattle Dog Mix

If you remember anything about ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’, you can probably guess why Boo was named the way he was. (I couldn’t, I read it when I was twelve.) He may well be the second dog I’ve posted who was named after a character from the book, with Atticus as the first. (Or possibly he was named after the Greek philosopher? Who knows.)

He’s definitely pretty shy… every time I moved into shooting position he went and hid behind mom.

I figured out the Chinese crested part right away. Boo’s mom said that other people usually get the Australian Cattle Dog part, but I would never have figured that out on my own.
