Hi! If you have visited our office, you likely have seen me helping out at the front desk. As the smallest (and furriest) of Dr. Poole’s office staff, I occupy the distinguished position of an office therapy dog. Weighing in at exactly 7 pounds, I am a miniature Red Shih Tzu. My AKC registered name is Princess Penelope Grufflesmith, but everyone just calls me Penny. My favorite treats are mini milk bones, and my favorite pastime is cuddling.
My typical day in the shop consists of enthusiastically greeting incoming patients, basking on Mandy’s lap in front of the floor heater, and begging for gummy worm pieces. Providing a calming presence for patients is my specialty, and you often will find me keeping a patient company while waiting in the reception area, or even sitting on a patient’s lap in the treatment room. If you need a furry friend to help make your dental visit stellar and more relaxed, please ask for me!
