Rico, an 11 month old Labrador retriever has been a member of Alan’s family since he was 8 weeks old. We were able to snap a photo of the two at our Central Austin branch during a check-up appointment!

Rico is Alan’s only dog and is totally spoiled (Alan calls Rico his “brother”).

Alan said that Rico knows how to tell time — at 5 or 6 p.m. he will start following Alan around the house because he knows that he will be getting his walk and dinner soon. He does this even if Alan hasn’t gone near the leash or kitchen.

Rico was very shy in the lobby but was eventually won over by Pupperoni (like most pups in the lobby do).
