Thanks to her good and easy connection with everyone, Nala started visiting the center with Doug on regular basis.
Now the little dog has her own schedule. All her dad would do is drop her in front of the elevator, then the teacup poodle had to go off to visit her human friends on all the floors of the building.
Doug said to KARE11 reporter:
“She’d rather ride it alone than with people, because she knows where she’s going. If she could, she would push the button herself.”
