Name and Role:
Ted Crown. I am named after Thomas Edison – not a teddy despite my looks.
PCU at Ormeau Baths – Professional Cheerer Upper
Describe yourself in 5 words?
Fun, furry, fond of a treat.
What is your favourite treat?
Part of my job at OB is to ensure the quality of everyone’s lunches. I eagerly stare at each resident’s first bite to ensure that it’s not poisonous. I always offer to taste a little for them just in case. Many people share their lunch with me so my favorite treats vary daily.
What is the best thing about Ormeau Baths?
A serious amount of networking opportunities for head scratches and belly pats (and Jenna).
Who is your best friend?
Jenna. Always Jenna.
How would you describe your perfect day?
Enter the OB building around midday. Snack. Another Snack. I walk around the tables offering a pet to anyone who needs it. I am also very keen to accompany people into the kitchen. They don’t know that they need to share their lunch with me – but I am lunch control. I sample a buffet of different lunches then head back to my best for a nap as it’s tiring work. Head scratches. Another snack. An odd 4 pm bark to ensure everyone is not asleep at their desks. Snack. Hometime.
What’s the best toy you have?
Just a simple ball. But please don’t throw it too far, despite being a golden retriever and poodle mix – I struggle to retrieve.
Do you enjoy getting groomed?
I recently sported a new cut. It wasn’t me. I prefer looking a little more shaggy so when people pet me, they are reminded of the blankets in Avoca.
How do you feel about cats?
I am a friend nor a foe to cats. I prefer humans always.
Who is a good boy?
I don’t want to be presumptuous but I am the bestest boy.
P.s Fun fact- I have been on a Billboard in NYC and you can find me on a mural in the Harp Bar in the Cathedral Quarter.
