All dogs are good dogs. This is objective fact and I will not hear any arguments against it. But some dogs, like Miss Babe Ruth of Greensboro, N.C., are better dogs. Since she was a nine-month-old puppy, the black labrador retriever has worked for the Class A Greensboro Grasshoppers, living up to her breed’s namesake and doing some retrieving.
Starting on August 2, 2006, Babe has tirelessly retrieved both bats and balls for players and umpires. She has worked every home game since she started, even making a quick comeback from an auricular hematoma surgery late last season. Last night, she retired after 649 consecutive games.
