Yahtzee, a yellow Labrador, was trained by Occupaws to be a guide dog for the blind. He didn’t make it in the program but Occupaws wanted Yahtzee to go to a home that would use him for therapy work. Lucky for Frank and Wendy, they were able to adopt him.
Yahtzee shares the household with Dublin, another yellow Lab who was adopted as a puppy. Plus, there are six horses (Taj, Norman, Lynx, Jordan, Stan, Joaker) and two cats (Charlie and Eenie). Dublin and Yahtzee have previously visited at Sauk Prairie Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital, libraries, Mounds Fest, and the Dane County Humane Society’s camps when they were members of another therapy dog group.
As Pet Partners and Dogs On Call members, Wendy will continue to visit with Yahtzee at Sauk Prairie and St. Mary’s Hospitals; Frank is interested in visiting at the Sauk Prairie Hospital and also would like to visit at the VA Hospital in Madison.
Wendy enjoys reading, and hobbies for Frank are hunting, working with his hands doing repairs and building things. They both love to travel, spend time with their grandchildren, and camp with horses all over the United States.
