Beau the Golden Retriever Racks Up Frequent Flyer Miles

March 2017

If you’ve been around Lakewood for any period of time, there’s a good chance you’ve met Beau. Beau is a 7 1/2 year old Golden Retriever and LYC member, Sol Zittrer’s certified service dog. Sol has had Beau for 7 years and he’s been his service dog since Sol’s wife Ruthie passed away in July of 2016. 

Recently Beau accompanied Sol on a trip to Chicago and Cleveland. Beau was treated to a Starbucks Puppuccino in between flights and even got to visit with the pilots in the cockpit! The next day, Beau attended a five hour long meeting with Sol and was perfectly well-behaved. Sol said, “He was unbelievable; he did not get a bathroom break until we got back to Houston.” We're sure Beau will have more adventures to come!

Beau's travels have taken him to Washington D.C., where he visited the Washington Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial. He also attended meetings at the United States Coast Guard Headquarters and even gave some pointers to Congressman Al Green. Where in the world will Beau go next?

June 2017

Less than a month after returning from Washington D.C., Beau headed to the Houston National Cemetary to visit his best friend Ruthie. He and Sol then hopped on a plane to Little Rock, Arkansas, where they stayed in the famous Capital Hotel. Beau ran around town with Sol all day and ended the night napping on the first-class hotel bed. What a "ruff" life!

Beau's latest trip has taken him abroad to Cabo with his owner, Sol, and his friend Patricia, who used to live there. While in Cabo, they looked at real estate and boating possibilities and met up with Sol's family member, Marco Ehrenberg, who was related to Sol's late wife, Ruthie. Sol gifted Marco a book titled "Ehrenberg" as pictured in the first picture below. As always, Beau was a perfectly well-behaved travel buddy!

Beau recently welcomed the Ambassador of Greece to the United States, Haris Lalacos, and his wife Anna to Houston. Later, he campaigned for LYC member, Bill King, who is running for mayor of Houston. No telling what Beau will be up to next!

Close to 60,000 people (and Beau) recently attended the 50th anniversary of the Offshore Technology Conference. A good time was had by all!
