Toby is a Norfolk terrier who lives with Andrea Drysdale, a prospect research analyst in the Office of Advancement.
Name: He has a fancy Canadian Kennel Club name but at home he’s just Toby.

Nickname: Too many to count. “Tobes” is the least silly.

Species/breed: Norfolk terrier

Age: Almost 8 years… going on 3.

Fave food:  Chicken. He should have sprouted feathers by now.

Special tricks: Toe taps, which he adopted when Covid rules outlawed handshakes.

Best quality: Loves people. He’s a little “spicy” when he meets bigger dogs, but they usually get along after an initial appraisal.

Social media platform or handle, if available:  None.
