Dixie Townsend:

Dixie is a very special Golden Retriever who can be found at the hospital each and every day that Dr. Townsend is there.  She has been his constant companion since her arrival in Fort Walton Beach in 2003.  She loves coming to work, where she is the queen to all the staff.  Her calm disposition makes her at ease with whatever species she happens to see from felines to sea turtles. 

Dixie is also very special to our clients, who often ask about her.  She will happily visit with anyone anywhere except the exam room, she is convinced if she goes in the exam room a technician will be working on her ears or rear!  Did we mention how smart she is?
