"We want to show our spirit. We have a lot of alumni here and we have students that are currently enrolled there," said Dr. Chris Dobbins. "We love our Dogs! When we saw that they were getting into the College World Series we bought out tickets, drove to San Jose and made it to the College World Series. This is Bulldog country and we really support them."
PetER went all out this week decorating their office. They had a balloon arch entering the building. The waiting room was covered in Bulldog red with pictures, posters and tons of Bulldog spirit. Fresno State spirit spilled over into the exam rooms. Victor E. Bulldog was even hanging out at PetER.
"He (Victor E. Bulldog) has been in here a few times," said Dr. Dobbins. "We take care of him whether it's on the field or off. After a hard day's work if he has any injuries, we'll take care of it."
