I’m King, ruler of Lakeway Veterinary Clinic. My primary servant, Dr. Rand Doyle, is tasked with running the day-to-day, while I contemplate more important matters—such as where my food is kept and just how high I can climb.
I chose Dr. Doyle as general overseer due to his credentials and superior capabilities. He graduated Magna Cum Laude in Pre-Med from the University of South Carolina and earned his doctorate of veterinary medicine from Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine. He also received the R.D. Horne Award for Orthopedic Surgery. He also received the R.D. Horne Orthopedic Surgery Award.
Dr. Doyle lives at home with his wife Taylor, and their two children, Towns and Saylor Jude, and six dogs, who are far beneath me. But Dr. Doyle spends a lot of time here, both as my companion and as general overseer. While I am obviously most majestic, he is pretty supreme.
I’m Norman, an Australian Shepherd/Healer mix- the perfect dog for my mom. She works with dogs, cats, horses, goats, pigs, birds and rabbits. Oh boy! She is Dr. Heidi Moore, but please call her Dr. Heidi. She is super awesome! As well as making sure I am safe from any loud scary things in the world – don’t get me started about the Roomba – she plays soccer, runs and let’s me follow her everywhere. She is married to Jeff and we also live with Lola, a Beagle/Basset mix. Lola doesn’t need as much protection.
My mom grew up in Midland, and went to college at Stephen F. Austin State University. There she played soccer and studied chemistry. She went to the West Indies to study veterinary medicine at St. George’s University. She finished up at Louisiana State University before returning to Texas. She got me from a litter of puppies that needed to be bottle-fed. I was picked because I was so calm, little did they know at the time, I was sick with parvo. Of course, she saved my life and I’ve been going 100 miles an hour ever since. It’s a good thing she is so active. See? Perfect for me.
I’m Oddie (short for Oddball), and I’m known as a champion snuggler and a great jogging buddy, and I live with Luna (short for Looney Tunes), and my mom, Britni, and my dad, Jonathon. I’m a German Shepherd/Pit Bull mix, and Luna is a brindle Boxer, and my dad is an animal doctor who likes to tackle tough dermatology cases and help my friends get that itchy allergy stuff under control. (Because that stuff is annoying, for real.) He got his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A&M and before that, he went to Louisiana State University and studied Animal Sciences, and he is very generous with treats. Our pack of four leads a quiet, outdoorsy life, but Jonathon is talking about getting more into water sports and that worries me. (It’s great for a cool-down, but no farther than chest-deep, y’all!)
Brittany English Head Veterinary Technician & Rowdy
HihihihiHI!!! I’m Rowdy! I’m a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix, and I’m gonna tell you about my mom, Brittany! She is the best! She and my dad (her husband, Garrett!) rescued me from a shelter and taught me everything I know! I can catch treats balanced on my nose! I am a smarty-pants!
But yes! My mom! She grew up in Devine, Texas, with dogs and cats and frogs and lizards! And now she’s a licensed veterinary technician, which means she’s like an RN! But for pets! She’s got a Bachelors of Science in Animal Science from Texas A&M and vet tech training from Blinn College! And wants to be a certified rehabilitation and therapy specialist! She thinks I’ll make a great therapy dog, because I am obedient and friendly! And did I mention? I am a smarty-pants?!
