This is my friend and co-worker, Richard. I gave him a broken electric can opener from the seniors' kitchen and asked him to throw it away. Instead, he and my friend Carol (not in the photo) recycled the small appliance into a lovely pet for me. I carried my new dog around work for part of the day, then she had a nap under my desk (in the trash can). Thank you Richard and Carol, for making my dog, and my day.
