Embarrassing HC Moment: Not realizing that my reflection isn’t another dog

Bragging Rights: I can “sit” almost every time my handler asks me to.

Words to live by: A sign from Swiss Ridge Kennels: “Advice from a dog: Greet your friends like they are the most important people in the world. Be loyal! Protect your family. If it’s something you want, chase it!”

One thing you would change at HC: Why are there so many hills?!!!

Guilty Pleasure: Sticks. If I find them in my yard I’m grabbing them!! Digging and rolling in the dirt, especially after I just got brushed

Some small things that make your day better: Treats, snoozing, belly rubs, the cool floor in Hogan, bonding exercises with my handlers and my office buddies, Barbara and Gail.

Role Model: Keeva, the therapy dog that visits campus every week; one day I’m going to be as well-trained as she is.

Favorite memory at HC: I put my pawprint on the center of the beam of the new building; playing with my handler’s dog in my yard. He was fast.
