Meet Teddy and Thai, the precious pooches of tax industry legend and former TEI president Neil Traubenberg and his wife, Joan. Sixteen-year-old Teddy and eight-year-old Thai were rescued from shelters and now hail from Sun Prairie, Wisconsin (hometown of Georgia O’Keefe, for all you trivia buffs).

Teddy, a Yorkiepoo, was once small enough to fit in the palm of Neil’s hand. Now too “mature” for his puppy antics of snacking on carrots and barking at dogs on TV, Teddy’s favorite pastime is sleeping—he even barks to signal bedtime and waits for Neil before turning in for the evening.

Thai, a Schnoodle, is such a playful pup that the Traubenbergs fenced in their yard to provide the perfect arena for frequent games of tennis ball fetch. He is a true companion who waits by the door anytime Neil and Joan leave, and lays by the tub anytime Teddy gets a bath to be sure his brother is okay. Always the consummate greeter, Thai barks with excitement every time he sees people, even if they just briefly stepped into another room.

We are so excited to feature Teddy and Thai as our October Pets of the Month!
