My nick name is Yellow Mellow Fellow, and I am pretty chill. I love going on walks. My favorite activity is to play tug. I graduated when I was 5 years old. I am currently a student support dog to student veterans at CSU Channel Islands. I love giving and receiving affection!

Ahh my last monthly update for all you Doc fans! I have officially graduated. I am now a working Student Support Dog. My new family took me home on October 20th. I met my new family and fell in love with them all. I started work that following Monday the 22nd as a Student Support Dog, mostly working with Veterans. It has been so wonderful here and although I miss my New Life K9s family, I love the job they have entrusted me with. I hope I bring lots of smiles, love and laughter everyday, at work and even off of work. Thank you for all your support throughout my time spent here as a New Life K9s dog. I will miss you all!
OCTOBER 2018 UPDATE
Hi folks! Glad you tuned in this month, my time at New Life K9s is coming down to the wire. I have my personality profile in, as do the many handlers who potentially will be my new family. Once New Life K9s has assessed all personalities they will find the one that best matches mine and that will be the person I get to spend the rest of my life with. We will live together and work together! How cool is that! I’ve been getting lots of practice this month working on my therapy skills. New Life K9s has taken me to three events this month where I was able to hang out with the people who attended and give them the much needed feeling of my soft fur. I also have been able to show my sister, another New Life K9s dog, Annie, who I live with, how an ‘almost’ professional dog should act. She is still in the process of becoming a Service Dog but I think with my help she will be an awesome helper to someone with PTSD. So when I am gone make sure to check her out. That’s all for September! Check in with me next month for my last monthly update, you won’t want to miss it!
SEPTEMBER 2018 UPDATE
Happy August NLK9s fans and supporters! I can’t believe it is already August, as kids get ready to go back to school I am getting ready to be placed in my forever home. This whole therapy dog thing is hard work…just kidding, I am loving every minute of it. Currently, my friends here at NLK9s, Nicole, Rosa and Courtney are teaching me how to walk nicely on the leash. Apparently, there is a certain time I am not allowed to smell my own way around town. I am learning to follow their lead and it’s working out because I still get my own time to smell in a different time of the day, they call those walks “Sniffy Walks", my FAVORITE! Now that our time is coming down to the wire I have more play and less work, which I don’t really mind either. I have been a good role model to Geege, she even calls me her Uncle Doc. Well I think that is all for this month! You’ll hear from me in September, it might even be my last month so make sure you tune in!
