My name is Courtney Mettler. I’m a sophomore Communication Studies major at Furman University. When I came down to Greenville, SC for college, I not only left the only home I’ve even known in Fairfield, CT, I left my dog. My dog, Dyson, is a 7 year old Golden Retriever and he’s the 3rd dog I’ve had in my 20 years. I’ve never known life without dogs.

Much to my relief, Furman University is a dog friendly campus. This blog is written for dog lovers, like me, who know what it’s like to leave a dog behind to go to college. I will discuss dogs on campus as well as in the community. I hope these posts bring joy and inspiration into your life. Go outside and pet a dog!
