How did you and your dog meet?
After I studied abroad at HUF, I wanted a dog. I was looking online for dogs, and I found [Louie] on the Humane Society of Pulaski County’s website. I sent in an application, I arrived the next day at 8 a.m. when they opened and I adopted him once I heard that there had been nine other applications sent in to adopt Louie.
What is your dog’s favorite thing about Harding?
Louie loves going on walks at Harding. This may be too much information, but he will not relieve himself unless he is on campus.
Does your dog have a favorite toy?
Louie’s favorite toy is a purple spider that he got from a BarkBox, [a monthly box of dog goodies].
What is your favorite thing to do with your dog?
I love to take Louie with me wherever I go whenever I can. I will sometimes take him to a lake even though he cannot swim. He is deathly scared of water. I will also take him to club sports games to see all the other dogs.
Can your dog do any fun tricks?
He can sit, shake, lay down and other household tricks. He knows what “Do you want to go for a walk?” means.
Do you have any funny stories about your dog?
I was just hanging out at my house one night, and I heard Louie crunching on something. I looked over at him, and he was holding a lollipop in his hand. He was holding it perfectly and licking it like a human would lick a lollipop.
Does your dog have a favorite study spot on campus or place to relax?
Louie loves the intramural fields. He likes watching other people run around because that is the one thing he does best.
Does your dog have a favorite Harding holiday?
At the Homecoming football game, there are a ton of people and a ton of dogs. He also loves the petting zoo during the Homecoming tailgate.
