Robert Oliver Dirtbag of Mint Springs Farm passed peacefully into his next adventure on November 19. He was 121 dog years old.

Born in Little Switzerland, NC, Dirtbag travelled far and wide and was loved by many but owned by none. After moving to Crozet, he completed his PhD at the Blue Ridge Institute of Geography and became a pioneer in GPS tracking of canines.

At the time of his passing, he was pack leader of a four-county area. He is survived by his pack, Namaste, Xenia, Zeus, el Toro, Porsche, Lucky and Leakin’ Louie.

In lieu of flowers, a donation would be welcomed by the Crozet Trails Crew.

  1. Ok, is this referring to a dog? What does it mean ‘After moving to Crozet, he completed his PhD at the Blue Ridge Institute of Geography and became a pioneer in GPS tracking of canines.’ COMPLETING HIS PHD? And what’s with the picture of Dirtbag Sonen Shaw? I mean, isn’t this talking about Robert Oliver Dirtbag? And is Crozet so boring that the Crozet is writing an obituary for a DOG!?

    • Lighten up there Bobby.
      Dirtbag was well loved by mountain and valley folk alike. He was a free spirit and brought joy to those who knew and loved him. he was a wanderer and a beautiful Great Pyrenees. If you don’t like the article don’t read it.
      If you find our community boring, No one is forcingyou to stay here.
      Dirtbag will be missed, by many and and far more than we will miss you.
      Best wishes.
