Comforting Care and Dog in the Library
Hi! My name is “Buddy”,
I’m a Golden Retriever and was born on April 25, 2011 in Provo, Utah. When I was 6 weeks old I was adopted by Pam and Dean Lott and I moved to Beaver, Utah. Once in Beaver, Pam started feeding me and I now weigh about 90 pounds. I live in a nice house and have lots of room to run and play. When I was about ten weeks old I went on my first boat ride. I was riding the bow of the boat and fell in the lake. Dad grabbed me really fast and pulled me back into the boat. I have been afraid to go in over my head ever since. I still love riding the bow, I’m just more careful. I love watching Mom catch fish. She only keeps the really big ones.
I love going places. I like to hang my head out of the truck and feel the wind. Mom got me a pair of “Doggles” so I won’t get bugs in my eyes. I also like to ride the RAZR (ATV) with Dad. We go up into the mountains where I chase birds and rabbits. I haven’t caught one yet. Dad takes me to the park and throws the tennis ball for me to retrieve. I love to run. When I get tired I don’t give the ball back to Dad.
Mom is teaching me to be a “Reader Dog”. I went to the Beaver Library the other day and lots of kids read to me. It was fun and I want to do it again really soon. I really like kids. I’m also hoping to be a “Comfort Dog”. I want to go to the hospital and visit people who are trying to get well. Mom told me “Fuzz Therapy” is a really cool thing and I have lots of fuzz (fur). I love to see people laugh and smile.
Mom and Dad teach me tricks and I get treats. My favorite treat is bacon. I also love tomatoes and cheese. I also like taking naps. Mom said that’s ok because I’m still a growing boy.
I’m a really, really, really, happy dog and love to make new friends. Maybe some day I can be your friend too!
