Some dogs fetch and beg. Others even learn to high-five...but we've never met another dog like Skidboot. This working ranch dog demonstrated remarkable restraint alongside his owner, David. While Oprah and her audience watched, Skidboot waited until David counted to three before snatching up a ball with his mouth.
In 2007, Skidboot passed away at the age of 15. David laid Skidboot to rest underneath an oak tree at his ranch, and he says his best friend was one-of-a-kind.
