I am Boot. Since I started at the Keller Center in September 2021, I have brought cuteness to the lawns, classrooms, corridors, and pawffices at Princeton, one wag at a time.
What are your responsibilities at the Keller Center?
I never turn down an opportunity to get head pats and belly rubs. I patrol the pawffices, so I always know when a student, staff, or faculty needs to pet a dog. There's no such thing as too many kisses from me. Hint: Ask me for "kiss-kiss" with your face close to mine, and don't be surprised if you find your heart stolen!
What do you appreciate most about the Keller Center?
It is also a place where I am always challenged to be more innovative in my ways to get to those crumbs and scraps on the floor. We're always raising the woof when it comes to creativity!
What advice would you have for students about getting involved at the Keller Center?
Even when nothing is going right, there are always squirrels to chase. The constraints of fences and trees are there to make one think outside of the crate, and then anything is pawsible.
What will students be able to take away from your classes?
I have one pawlicy when it comes to creativity and innovation: The park is never a bad idea.
