Meet Harper! Our new clinic puppy. She is now just 3 months old and enjoying half-day visits to the clinic on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Harper is an Australian Labradoodle (mini labradoodle), which is a Labradoodle and Cockapoo mix. She is hypoallergenic and a non-shedder. Originally Australian labradoodles were bread as service dogs (smarty pants and attentive). So far she loves to greet people in the reception area with lots of tail wagging and spontaneously fun puppy energy. She also has a calm side to her where she just casually saunters around and then finds a cozy spot to take a nap.
This all started years ago when one of the clinic LMTs brought a puppy into the clinic for a few hours and all our patients that day couldn’t tell me how much they enjoyed having a few moments while in the reception area to enjoy the puppy. It brightened our whole clinic day.
I thought to myself… one day this would be a great addition to the clinic. And here we are, many years later. We have found our match.
The playfulness of a puppy and sincerity of an adult dog can touch your heart, relax you and uplift your day… feel free to stop by and say hello to Harper.
Here are just a few comments from our patients:
– “This just made my whole day!”
– “I may just need to make more appointments, now that you have Harper at the clinic.”
– “I think next time I will come early so that I have more play time with Harper.”
