Ashley the Dog

Ashley was a dog. Yes, that’s right, a dog.

 

But no ordinary dog. Ashley Whippet was a very special, talented dog. Ashley first entered the public eye when his owner, Alex Stein, led him onto the field at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles unannounced, and at first unwelcomed.  Alex threw a frisbee across the field which Ashley chased and caught 6 feet in the air, demonstrating his ability before thousands of amazed fans. Ashley and Alex were seperated when Alex was arrested by the police.

 

When they were reunited, they made appearances on everything from TV talk shows to the White House. Ashley Whippet became a celebrity. Soon an annual tournament named The Ashley Whippet Invitational was started and remains today, a tribute to talented dogs. Ashley Whippet died in 1985 in his owners arms, a champion and a hero. We had the honor of hosting Ashley at our New Haven store; his favorite flavor was chocolate banana!
