Barney and COCO

We are the team of Barney Redding and COCO. She is a rescued Tri-colored Chocolate Border Collie that I adopted in January 2015.

Her gentle and friendly personality along with my retirement got me interested in getting involved in some type of volunteer work. We found Compassionate Paws and Pet Partners and now volunteer as a Pet Partner Team once a week at Redmond Regional Hospital visiting patients.

We are involved with Read With Me and work with two first graders at Glenwood Primary School weekly. We also participate in special event requests through Compassionate Paws. These interactions have been very rewarding and everyone loves COCO.
