Celebrated Wheaten Travel Reporter and rescue success story
An appreciation of Darby, who took Times readers along on dog-friendly adventures around California
If all dogs go to heaven, resident angels are greeting a well-traveled pooch this week.
Darby the Wheaten terrier, an L.A. Times Travel section mascot who tested dog-friendly hotels and activities for six years, died Sunday. He was 13.
A San Diego native, Darby was a rescue dog who came to live with travel writer Rosemary McClure in the South Bay when he was 6 years old.
The handsome dog then ambled his way through some of the state’s most interesting hotels. His photogenic mug and happy personality put him on the Travel section cover regularly and on the front page of the newspaper twice.
On April 10th, 11th and 12th, our Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of Southern California participated in the American Family Pet Expo. It was a fun time introducing our wonderful Breed to the public. Our SCWTCSC Booth won 1st Place of all the breed booths that were present! Judging was based on presentation, information provided, and knowledge of the Breed by the exhibitors! Our booth showcased our breed history, traits, and our support of Wheaten Rescue.
A special thank you goes out to Laura Virant, the chair of the event for her hard work and scheduling. Laura wants to thank Debbie Bowen and Conrad Virant for helping set-up the booth and Conrad Virant, and Jim and Karla Cohen for their help breaking down the booth. Laura also appreciates and thanks the club members who shared their time and Wheatens to make this year’s event a huge success. Click here for photos.
