Bocker FB PhotoBocker is an 11-year old labradoodle who has been with his owner since he was 7 weeks old.

The dog has tremendous personality.  He’s done modeling and cameos for ads, movies and TV.  Bocker also devotes considerable time to good causes:  He’s the spokesdog for Animal Advocacy and is an active therapy dog for many local charities – he participated in an event to raise funds for the Sandy Hook families, does work for local shelters and volunteers as a therapy dog for several disabled groups.  For all Bocker does to help others, his owner says “He’s my therapy dog first!”.  They are very connected, “a part of each other”; since her husband passed away, Bocker’s been her guiding light.

Bocker was diagnosed with lymphoma in December 2014.  He started Chemo and was deemed in remission by February.  Then he went through a series of radiation treatments, which are now complete, and he’s back to chemo to complete the recommended treatment plan.

We’re happy to play a role in helping Bocker get back to his active role in bringing smiles and good cheer to others in need.

Let’s all send good wishes for Bocker’s continued recovery!
