Tolkien is a blue heeler mix, but don’t tell him he’s not a purebred. He was a stray in Eastern Washington and was found by Three Rivers Rescue who kindly let Rachael Garrett and her family adopt him. Tolkien is true to his breed - extremely smart and a bit neurotic. If by chance he finds a tennis ball in the office he will put it wherever it might be thrown for him – be that on your foot, in your lap, or on the seat of your chair where you can conveniently reach the slobbery thing. His favorite activity is fetching of course, closely followed by laying on his back during staff meetings hoping that somebody will give him a belly rub.
