Buddy, the Therapy Dog: Austin’s favorite helper pup!
This picture really captures him (when he’s awake): Present, intelligent and a show-off. Buddy brings warmth to my office only a dog can provide! Plus, he’s a great listener . . . I mean, look at those ears!
Buddy is a regular presence in my office. He helps people feel at ease. He is quite intuitive, does not bark, and enjoys exploring parks around Austin, especially playing at Zilker Park. If he is not in “therapy-work” mode, he will likely come to say hello, then go to sleep beside me. Sometimes, you’ll find him looking out the window in the waiting room; or sleeping in front of it. Feel free to give him a scratch, he’s super friendly! But, please don’t give him treats since by the end of the day he may not have an appetite for his dinner!
