Daisylane Shake Rattle and Roll owned by Carrie Sogg & Kristine Schmidt
Bica is the son of CH MACH10 Denzil and CH MACH4 Marlee, the first CH MACH x CH MACH breeding in the history of Cavaliers.
From Carrie; Bica's accomplishments are clearly in the Best Friend and Therapy Dog category. He's been visiting Methodist Hospital here in Brooklyn, NY. Just for those who are thinking the whole therapy dog thing seems a little frivolous (I do too at times), I can relate an experience a week ago where we were visiting patients in the ventilator unit (end-of-life for most). I picked Bica up and held him up on a patient's bed, a woman who could not open her eyes or move even when we spoke to her. Her daughter helped her stroke Bica's soft ears, and the woman smiled. This was a real gift for the family, and chokes me up a bit just thinking about it.
Bica also visits kids, rehab patients, families waiting for their loved ones to come out of surgery, as well as staff (staff especially loves him on the units where the patients are the most gravely ill and/or have a lot of pain). One patient told me he had a dog who looked just like Bica. "Really?" I said. "What kind of dog was he?" "A Rottweiler." the patient replied proudly. "He looked exactly the same!" (Actually, lots of people wonder if he's a Rottie or a Dobie!) Bica is a good and happy boy, and gets lots of treats when we leave the hospital!
Here is the Good Dog Foundation video starring Bica with a young boy whom is recovering from brain surgery.
