Max is a very lovable, yet fierce, 8-year-old Yorkshire terrier. Max’s full-time job is to protect the Ahern house from squirrels, chipmunks, and the mailman. He is a true lap dog. In addition to cuddling, his favorite activities are belly scratches, playing fetch with the ball, and running on the beach. Max’s favorite snacks are carrots, pretzels, and peanut butter! We love Max! Yorkies tend to have a long life expectancy, so, we’re looking forward to many more fun-filled years with our buddy Max!

Nova is a two-year-old mixed terrier, named for her owner’s favorite college. She was rescued from Brandywine SPCA and enjoys long walks, short runs, and lots of peanut butter. When not loudly debating the relative merits of dogs v. cats with the home’s resident felines, Nova can be seen sprinting from room to room. And, despite her resemblance to Pete the Pup, alas, she is not the granddaughter of the Little Rascals doggo.

 

 

Attendees are free to bring their own pets, but please note that furry friends are not required—all are welcome to come check out the animals. Upon entering Zoom, attendees can choose whether to keep their microphones/audio on or off, depending on whether they would like to interact with the animals and attendees or simply observe. The event will be moderated by a library staff member, so please feel free to also use the chat feature to ask any questions if you do not want to unmute yourself.

Do midterms have you feeling stressed? Let us lend you a helping “paw”—unwind and grab that extra boost you need to finish the fall semester strong! This event, sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, is free and open to all Villanova students, faculty, and staff.

Olive is an 8-year-old standard poodle who erroneously believes she is a human. She is finicky eater, but has been known to swim through lava for hot dogs and/or bacon. She is a lover of other dogs, children, and most local wildlife (which she often confuses for fast moving toys, but has never successfully caught. Thankfully.) Despite literally being a “Puddle Hound” (Pūdelhund in German) she is not a fan of water, but will silently suffer frequent baths and grooming.
