#DogsofEN, Vol. 6: Meet Ozwald

Since launching this series we’ve observed a groundswell of upper-level canine event prospects, a few of whom we showcased in our last edition of #DogsofEN, “Put a Saddle on That Thing.”

Let’s kick off this go-round by meeting Ozwald, an mini Australian Shepherd owned by Area IV eventer Camryn Holcomb. While small, he is an aspiring athlete with big dreams — you can follow his adventures on Facebook at The Life and Times of Ozwald from Kansas.

What a cool pup, and owner Camryn says he means the world to her. “Last August I was in a really bad life threatening accident and after I got home my dad took me out to go look at puppies — mainly just to get me out of the house — and we found him,” she explains. “He was a therapy dog for me and still is! Now we take him with us to shows all over the Midwest and next year hopefully to NAJYRC!”

Ozwald even got a selfie with Laine Ashker — it doesn’t get much more “eventer” than that!

Well-played, Ozwald! And many thanks to Ozwald’s personal paparazzi Samantha Fogg, also of Area IV. Samantha has competed through Training level and participated in last year’s RPP Thoroughbred Makeover with an OTTB named Arrow she purchased from the Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center during Rolex last year — check out their blog here.
