Soccer (May 17, 1988 - June 26, 2001) was a dog actor. A veteran of many television commercials for companies like Nike Athletics and Mighty Dog Dog Food, he became famous portraying the talking dog Wishbone in the PBS TV series of the same name. Chosen from out of more than 100 dogs who auditioned for the role, Soccer appeared in almost every episode of the show during its 1995-1998 run. He lived with his trainer, Jackie Kaplan, on the Plano, Texas ranch where the Wishbone series was filmed.

I loved the PBS TV show. I met you when you were performing at Target. I saw you do the back flip. I was amazed. You were so talented and the greatest dog I ever saw.

I can remember watching you on TV when I was a kid in the '90s.
