Houston

Steve Reese &

I am the proud SEAT Pet Dad of Lady Houston, an Australian Labradoodle. She turns 1 years old on September 17th.

Houston comes from a long line of family members who have been trained as Therapy dogs. Her specialty is to become a Therapy Dog to the Elderly who are afflicted with Alzheimer and to children with reading challenges. To date, she has passed her advanced level training and is on track to earn her Caine Good Citizen (CGC) certification by Mid-September. Thereafter, she plans to enter Therapy Dog School (Phoenix Children’s Hospital) in late September.

Misc Facts:

• Houston has two cousins whose parents include PGA golfers Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus.

• She LOVES to swim and has mastered the ability to float on a raft.

• One of her favorite pastimes is to look out the window and be on “Look out” for the mailman.

• Bananas are considered one of her favorite foods.

• She understands the rigors of the Sports Entertainment industry and provides her Dad with lots of comforts after a long day!

all the pillows in the bed!
