Therapist Name: Buddy
My Breed: Australian Shepherd mix
My Human Partner: Kelly Flood
I’ve been an HOV Volunteer since: September 2011
My interests, hobbies and talents: Going for early morning strolls through the 'hood to "share the love" with my many admirers; chillin' on the couch in the front room so I can watch birds, kitties and admirers walk by; snuggling with family and friends, and gazing sweetly at them. My adopted sister is deaf and vision-impaired, so I also alert her to what is going on so she doesn't feel left out.
My work at HOV: Over the last year, I focused primarily on one patient whom I visited at her home on a regular basis. We really bonded and I enjoyed my visits with her so much that when my mom would get out my blue HOV vest, I would wiggle so much I almost turned myself inside-out! I also visit at Coronado PCU where I enjoy meeting all the different patients, their families, and staff.
