Fozzy The Therapy Dog
Fozzy may look like a Muppet. Fozzy Bear from the Muppet Show, said that she filled a hole in Lynn Goldfarb’s life. Goldfarb lost her beloved dog Ashby, who she rescued as a puppy and nursed back to health, because the pup had a broken leg when she adopted her. After Ashby died, Goldfarb was heartbroken and her husband thought she should wait a few months before getting another dog.
Goldfarb couldn’t wait that long, and at night would search for another Ashby on Petfinder.com. Luckily, she found Fozzy, who reminded her so much of Ashby. She immediately went to meet Fozzy and fell in love. Fozzy has filled Goldfarb’s life with joy, and as a therapy dog, many of the children that she visits at the Family House (affiliated with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital).
