I would like to start by sharing with you how I became part of Dr. Knutson’s vision for her practice. It begins by providing a warm and stress free environment for her patients and staff. She believes in the practice of Assisted Animal therapy and therefore she sought out to find that special dog to practice with her.
So, our story begins. I am a 1 year old Frenchie (French Bulldog) in training as a therapy dog. I was born in Washington State to a family who couldn’t care for me. So I spent a brief moment a at wonderful Rescue home in Normandy Park, (part of the inspiration for my name). I was introduced to Dr. Maegan Knutson in August 2015. We connected the moment we met.
I have a sweet, soft disposition. I love being around people, especially children. My desire is to help our patients feel at ease and welcome.
I am serving as an intern until I complete my certifications.
As a certified therapy dog, my handler and I have to pass a series of classes and tests. This certifies that I am not intimidated by strangers wanting to pet, hold or play with me. I keep my cool around unusual sights, sounds and commotion. I am required to follow commands, behave in a professional manor, stay current on all of my vaccinations and health visits at all times.
I understand when someone may be apprehensive of me. Please tell the front desk if you have any concerns and we will do our very best to remedy the situation.
In my off time, I enjoy meal time, chewing on bones or pig ears, going for walks outside, being petted, scratched, spending time with family and friends and of course playing catch.
