  • Dougy

    Dougy joined UDVH in 2008 and has been gracing us with his presence ever since. He's been known to steal a turkey sandwich or beg for your lunch. Dougy's favorite task is helping with laundry, but only when it's straight out of the dryer. Clients often comment on his gorgeous blue fur which he uses to hide his big belly. If we don't give in to his dinner demands right at 5pm, he may be found eating plant leaves in the waiting room.
