Watson: Thanks for spending a little time with me today you two. Tell me a bit about yourselves, what is your favorite thing to do other than visiting RMH?
Dobby: Anything that Mommy is eating.
Watson: You are preachin’ to the choir! Beef or chicken?
Bandit: Chicken, because I could actually catch a live one myself!
Dobby: Beef. I’m allergic to chicken.
Watson: You can catch a live chicken? Whoa. Okay, so tell me, if you could be any other kind of animal, what kind of animal would you be and why? I’m guessing it’s not a chicken.
Bandit: A human because then I could always have whatever my Mommy is eating.
Dobby: A human because then I could play pro ball!
Watson: Yes, just like the greatest quarterback of all time Peyton Manning! Did you know he passed for 408 in the 1996 Citrus Bowl? He’s Tennessee's all-time leading passer. Beat Auburn in the 1997 SEC Championship. AUBURN. They are like, really, really good. And did you know he’s a Pi Beta Kappa?!
Dobby: I meant basketball.
Watson: Oh, er… please complete the following sentence: “If dog’s ruled the world… “
Bandit: If dogs ruled the world, no one would ever go hungry. There would always be plenty of whatever Mommy is eating for everyone!”
Dobby: If dogs ruled the world, no one would fight because we’d all be having fun playing ball together!
Watson: Great answers. I think that if dog's ruled the world there would be no more sick kids. No more cancer and no more accidents. It would be a pretty wonderful place! Speaking of dog’s doing great things, what is the best part of being a RMH Therapy Dog
Bandit: Getting petted, loved, and adored by all the children, their parents, and the staff and getting to love them back. The kitchen always has good smells too!
Watson: If you could say something to a RMH kid who has had a really hard day, what would you say?
Dobby: It always helps to cuddle up in the arms of someone you love to take a nice, long, nap and dream of the things that make you happy.
Watson: One final question, what’s your favorite type of grass?Thank you both for sharing today. Next week, I’m talking to one of our more elusive dogs. Right now, I’ll keep it a mystery…
Bandit: “Backyard grass is the best. But, sometimes, front yard grass is good too, when we get the chance. After all, variety is the spice of life!”
