show the way
Bronte shines wherever she goes. From the show ring to the hospitals where she does therapy work, this golden girl lights up many lives. Though a couch potato with simple tastes (her favorite toy is a water bottle!), she’s so focused on her job that an injured paw couldn’t stop her from spreading smiles.
A few months before competing in the Westminster Kennel Club dog show, parents (and veterinarians) Erin and John noticed some lameness and found a blister-like sore between her toes. “The sore went away with antibiotics,” recalls Erin, “but came back weeks later. Something still wasn’t right.” An ultrasound revealed a piece of glass embedded in her paw, and it was removed just in time for Westminster. “She never missed a beat!” says Erin.
