“It’s a good icebreaker for a lot of these students,” Gertler explained. “Sometimes they feel more comfortable talking to the dogs than talking to me.” However, one of the doggos – a young puppy called Dudley – was pretty vocal when he wanted attention from his humans.
Little Dudley was born in a barn and while the Gertlers didn’t know the barn’s owner, they decided to make the pup one the family. Like most puppies, though, Dudley liked to bark when he wanted something.
Not only did Dudley bark from excitement, he also made a habit of barking when he was alone, too. In fact, he was so noisy that he began to disturb his freshmen neighbors. And the pooch was particularly disruptive during his late-night playtime.
