Our House Dog
Duke, Chief Cheer Officer
In times of heartache and stress, any second of relief can lift a thousand burdens – allowing those in pain to simply breathe.
Our house dog Duke gets it! He knows when someone wants to run around and play and when someone just needs a friend to lean on.
His full name is Duke Dean McDonald and he is the Chief Cheer Officer at the Ronald McDonald House of Corpus Christi. His job is to welcome our guests as they come through our doors. He enjoys bringing joy and comfort to the children and families who stay at our House and putting a feeling of home into the House that Love Built.
Our former House Dog Sophia has gone into retirement. Sophia had been the resident cheer-giver of the Ronald McDonald House of Corpus Christi since 2007. She took her job seriously and always brought a sense of home to the families.
