My parents had to put our family dog of 14 years to sleep yesterday. He was a great dog, and I would recommend a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier to anyone! Long gone were the days where he would give you a "wheaten welcome." He would still give himself "swoop swoops" as we called them - where he would rub his face against the couch and mess his hair up. Here's what a "swoop, swoop" looked like, but this was from having his head out the car window.
