A client recently noted that while I mention my four-legged child, Pete, there
doesn’t seem to be any pictures of him on the website! Obviously, this was a
complete oversight and must be corrected.
So, without further ado, allow me to introduce the real star of the
Worley Elder Law world- Pete.
We’ve known Pete pretty much his whole life, although he wasn’t our “kid” until a few years ago. One of our closest friends got Pete as a puppy and so we got to watch him grow up. As Pete got older and children entered the picture, it became easier for everyone if Pete came to live with us full time, so he officially joined the Worley clan in 2015.
Enough about us though, Pete is why you’re here right? So on to the star!
Pete is a Catahoula Leopard Dog, although he’s much more white than the standard dog you’ll see. He is certainly full of personality and probably a bit spoiled... He LOVES his nubby bouncy balls and has a collection in varying condition. While Pete will play fetch, it’s more like a we throw the ball, he gets the ball, repeat once, then he decides he won’t keep bringing the ball if we’re just going to throw it away.
He loves raw potatoes, carrots, and green beans- but definitely won’t turn his nose up to a frosty paws or Puppuccino. Of course, he’s always happy to help clean up if food prep results in something landing on the floor.
But Pete’s most favorite thing to do is to go for a ride. So much so that we have to use a code word in order for him to not catch on too soon. Since we live not too far from the beach, at least once a week we all hop in the Jeep and ride out to the island. He knows he has to put on his special harness, and where it’s located, but we haven’t quite gotten him to the point where he’ll bring it to us.
Now, in case you’re not a fan of the four-legged, please don’t be concerned. Pete does not come to the normal office, he prefers to oversee things at the home office only.
Hopefully, now that we’ve introduced you, this makes up for having overlooked dear Pete until now. And don’t worry, you’ll be hearing from Pete from time to time as he provides some insight on how you can make sure your four-legged family members are taken care of in the event of your passing or incapacity.
Who is Pete, and why do we do things for his sake?
All grown up
