My name is TY and I am not shy. I am a 3 year old Cockapoo. I love meeting people and going places. Mom and I get to do lots of both with DOC. I have a 2 year old baby sister named Daisy. She is a Teddy Bear. I passed my Pet Partner test on March 31, 2011 (with a higher score than Mom, my handler) and visit Meriter Hospital twice a month. I have met some really neat people on my visiting “rounds.” One in particular was a young blind girl we met in the main lobby who took a “tour” of me from the tip of my nose to the tip of my tail. Mom gave me extra hugs that day because she said I was so good and patient with her. I thought it was fun and she was so gentle with me. I have visited Ogg Hall at the UW 3 times (you could feel the stress leaving those young people), went to the Meriter NICU 5 year reunion (lots of kids there) and Mounds DogFest (now that was a blast!). Mom says we will do more once she retires but for now I am meeting people and going places. Thank you DOC!!
