Friend of Liah Greenfeld
Meet Billy. He is a very charming and affectionate little person, as well as responsible and hard-working. He has helped Professor Greenfeld write numerous books by guarding her computer while she took short breaks. He has also invented a language of his own to communicate with his family. He even once greeted Professor Greenfeld with the word “Mama!” He also enjoys a good snack and a story before bed.
Thank you for all your help, Billy. Keep up the great work!
Friend of Deborah Carr
Meet Brisket. His full name is Brisket Z. Beagle, and he began his life as a little stray in Tennessee, but he was adopted by Professor Carr and now lives the good life in New England. He very is grateful to Boston University for helping to pay for his kibble.
Thank you for everything you do, Brisket! BU is proud to have you on board!
Cherished friend of Sarah Miller
Meet Chloe. She lived her 19 years to their fullest, and loved sleeping in the sun, chasing her tail, curling up on your chest to purr- directly in front of your face- whenever you attempted to read a book in bed, and eating all the tuna she could!
You are greatly loved, Chloe! For now and for always.
Friend of Whitney Gecker
Meet Frankie. Her full name is Frances Aiello. She is four years old and already a queen. Activities she enjoys doing include: lounging on the kitchen table, rubbing her chin against pointy corners, and affectionately caressing people with her puffy tail.
Keep being you, Frankie! Your family loves you very much!
French Fry, Maggie, and Milo
Friends of Kristen Schmidt
Meet French Fry. He is a snack thief, cat yoga enthusiast, and he loves to stare at you.
Meet Maggie. She is a petite princess, blanket stealer, and lover of naps.
Meet Milo. He loves to steal towers and is a top-notch snuggler, but he has not yet figured out how doggie beds operate.
Friend of John Stone
Meet Juliette. She is pictured, keeping Naomi, Professor Stone’s granddaughter, company. Juliette is a shy individual, but adores her family very much.
Thank you very much for being a part of the Stone family, Juliette! You are loved and appreciated by multiple generations!
Friend of Alya Guseva
Meet Persik. He is a Sun Conure, turning 8-years-old this month. His favorite thing to do is to get inside someone’s T-shirt or a sweatshirt and peek out of it while clinging to the opening at the neck. Best seat in the theater! He is also a fan of faucet showers, empty boxes, and brown bags that can be shredded, but he is not a fan of wild turkeys: he screams loudly when he sees them passing by the window.
Thank you for everything you do for your family, Persik! You are greatly loved.
Friend of Carmen Rowe
Meet Robin. He is a Beagle/Chihuahua mix and just turned 8 years old. He moved to Boston from Florida four years ago and jumped out of fear the first time he his paw prints in the snow, and then sniffed the prints in total confusion and continued to walk around awkwardly in the new substance. Even though he has gotten used to the snow by now, he is still not a big fan of the Boston cold.
Thank you for all of your support, Robin, and for being such a photogenic pupper!
Friend of Selma Hedlund
Meet Sally. She is a 7-month-old labradoodle! She enjoys eating her dad’s slippers and annoying other dogs until they agree to play with her. She also likes to remind her mom that trips to the dog park are much more important than freaking out over grad school ♥
You are very loved and appreciated. Thank you for all of your support, Sally!
Friend of Joseph Harris
Meet Pookie, a cat so beloved that she has her own bed (thanks Danok Perez-Becker)! No matter that she doesn’t use it and instead prefers to sleep on the pillows of the people who love her. Although not a lap cat, Pookie still finds ways to get her affection across. She is a purr-box when you rest your hand near her but also knows the humans around her would be much less if she were not around. Luckily she does not tell them.
