Birthday: Approximately March 31, 2008
Likes: chewies and treats, awaiting for morsels to fall as Mom is cooking, cute neckerchiefs, my turkey squeaky toy

Hobbies: napping, smelling flowers, prancing, rummaging through piles of clothing, licking the couch, walks and hikes, hanging out with my dog and people friends at Willow

Eric’s dog, Scarlet:
All About Scarlet:
Breed: Miniature American Eskimo
Birthday: December 24, 2004
Likes: companionship, treats, car rides, working at Willow, and getting petted
Dislikes: Knocks at the door and doorbells, knocks at the door and doorbells on TV, wet grass, her kitty siblings looking interested in her food bowl, and not getting petted
Hobbies: playing with her rope toy, napping, going on hikes and adventures, and staring at you with great intensity until she gets petted
How she helps clients: As an affectionate but shy and nervous dog, she has had a long journey in learning to trust strangers and other animals despite her troubles. Scarlet’s gentle, loving nature teaches us that pain is not permanent and that there is always love in the world if we are open to it.
Nicknames: Snowball, Cottonball, my precious
Scarlet stays by Eric’s side if she can help it.
