Boykin Spaniel Dog Names in Pop Culture
There is a new ball boy for the Lexington County Blowfish, located in unincorporated Lexington County, South Carolina. The Blowfish is a collegiate team in the Coastal Plain League. The Blowfish announced on May 31, 2018 that they had hired a new ball boy. This was not the typical ball boy; he is more a ball dog and is a 1-year-old Boykin Spaniel named Phisher. This unconventional teammate made his debut at the season opener for the Blowfish at Lexington Blowfish Stadium. In order for Phisher to properly do his job as ball boy, he had to have a special backpack made that will hold bottles of water and balls. He will take the water and balls to the umpires during home games. Blowfish owner, Bill Shanahan announced that Phisher’s official title will be Director of On-Deck-Circle Operations. Shanahan, after speaking with veterinary technicians at the Batesburg-Leesville Animal Hospital about having a dog visit the ballpark, he decided to hire Phisher for a very special job. Phisher is owned by Geri Perano, a veterinary technician. The Batesburg-Leesville Animal Hospital became a Blowfish sponsor this season. Phisher’s new job is not a part of the sponsorship, but he has brought much publicity for the animal hospital. Since Boykin Spaniels are a retrieving breed and the state dog of South Carolina, it seemed only natural to choose this special dog.
Phisher had to have special training to become a well-trained ball dog. He has been training since December with Kirk Sharpe, a dog trainer from Lexington, South Carolina. Sharpe expects Phisher to shine in his new role with the team once he learns his routine. Phisher’s training is mostly been obedience training and also hunting. Sharpe is hopeful that by the end of the season, Phisher will be retrieving bats for the team as part of his normal duties. He is full of energy and eager to please. Phisher is not simply the ball dog, delivering water and balls to the umpires; he is also the leader of the Blowfish Pooch Parade that will be held during every Tuesday home game. The Pooch Parade will wind around the bases and this event is part of a promotion called Dog Day Tuesdays. During this promotion, Phisher will help bring awareness to the Lexington County Animal Services. Homeless dogs will be brought in and an adoption event will be held during the games. Phisher has a lot on his plate, but he is a very smart, happy dog willing to do anything to please his trainer.
