PWI Construction Director James Reigle is Bush’s human. Bush and James came together three years ago. Learn more about their story:
- How’d you come up with his name? When I was stationed in Washington DC and out for a jog, I noticed a marble plaque in the corner of a building built in the mid-1800’s. I was curious to see what it said and was surprised when I read it. Basically, it was a dedication to a dog who must have been very much loved by the Fire House that adopted him. I thought to myself that I’d name one of my future dogs after this guy. https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/vigilant-firehouse
- Favorite pastime or activity to do together? Stand up paddle boarding
- Celebrity look alike? Bush is a local celebrity (at least on the popular river he is on nearly every day).
- His special talents or tricks? Bush is extremely chill and will do anything you ask of him… except get in a bathtub.
- How has he made a positive difference in your life? I had just lost a 13-year-old Chocolate Lab to age, Bush helped fill a very big void… big time.
- Breed? Australian Cattle Dog, otherwise known as a Blue Heeler
- Where did you find him/her? Bush is a rescue. He was found wandering in the Kansas countryside. My father, a volunteer at the local animal shelter, called me and simply said “I found a Reigle dog and you need to take him” that was enough for me.
