Pets of Dalhousie: Meet Neely
Neely is a chocolate lab who lives with Mary Jane Webber, communications and strategy manager with the Ocean Frontier Institute.
Name: Neely Webber
Nickname(s): Littlebabypuppydog Bestdoginthewholeworld, My baby, Furface
Species/breed: Chocolate Lab
Fave food: Yes. (But if we had to pick, chimken and cawwots)
Special tricks: Being an empath. She will instinctively go to the person in the room who is holding in the most negative energy. She even nudges my arm holding the phone if I am talking to someone in distress. If I’m in a meeting where things are getting tense, she will leap off the second floor bed and rush to the basement to be within petting distance. She’s very woowoo.
Best quality: Companioning. The unvarnished truth is that her love and solid presence got me through the pandemic. As a single person, the days were a lot less lonely, long and scary with her by my side. Never, ever has any creature looked at me the way she does.
