Bertie, who lives in New York, goes to work with Kathy every day at an art gallery where he enjoys playing around and socialising with some of his dog friends.

"I feel so lucky, not only is he a cute bear buddy, he has the sweetest disposition, calm, thoughtful and gentle," Grayson, who found her faithful hound on a pet adoption website, told Reuters on Sunday (November 19).

Kathy, who lost her father and her fiancé last year, says Bertie helps lift her spirits and bring joy to her life. She said she leans on the dog to get through the day. "He is an irrepressible joy dispenser and I'm pretty much the luckiest lady in the world to have him," Grayson said

Kathy started filming Bertie to share his happy face with others. She says she has received messages from followers telling her the videos help them to cope with depression and loss. "That makes me the most happy to think his little happy face makes thousands of people have a little burst of happiness," Grayson said.
