We Are Spilling the Beans!

We’re spilling the beans on the latest upcoming Never Bean Better developments! Bean is the co-author of an upcoming book to be launched in early 2023. This therapy dog and his lovable canine Never Bean Better pack of Golden Retrievers will train humans on how to live life unleashed. His co-author and chief leash holder is Michelle Drager; his editor is Beth Kallman Werner, Author Connection, LLC; and his publisher is Tracey Jones, Tremendous Publishing. Be sure to keep an eye out for this paw-some book!

How We Got Started …

As a celebrity canine, who is best known for his canine chatter and woo woo, Bean made appearances on Animal Planet’s show The Haunted; was quoted in The Wall Street Journal and woo’d crowds at various canine-focused fundraisers as a spokes dog. Bean was born to share love. Bean was named Neversink’s Never Bean Better at birth, he grew up in a loving Golden Retriever home with his Momma Ruby and his Uncle Trooper, and grew up to be a registered therapy dog, sharing the wuv at hospitals, schools, reading programs, behavioral health therapy group sessions, domestic violence and homeless shelters, and long-term care and Alzheimer units. He has amazing litter mates and a lot of wooftastic Golden Retriever relatives who made their claim to fame in agility, confirmation, field, obedience, search and rescue and therapy dog services.

He currently lives with his canine family the beautiful diva, Carly (a.k.a. Q) and his comical and busy young sidekick, Teague.  As the pack of Never Bean Better, on the infamous Facebook page and various social  media outlets, they share the unconditional “Bean Wuv” everyday with fans around the globe.

The creation of Bean’s cartoon character that appears throughout the year on the color book pages on the Facebook page, are also shared with sick children and patients of memory care units and available for all to enjoy.

Because the Never Bean Better pack are ambassadors of kindness,  they want to take that loved cartoon character and use it as the muse for a Never Bean Better future product. A version of a “Bean Dog ” that will be the center of a Never Bean Better movement to provide Toys that Teach Giving™ to those who are in need of a special friend.  Bean has shared many comfort toys with those in need as he made rounds as a therapy dog.  It is his wish to be able to share the “Bean Wuv” with many more.  Stay tuned for more as our company continues to grow.

About Bean

(Chief Executive Woo)

As a Certified Therapy Dog, he has visited hospitals, rehab centers, long term care facilities and schools across the U.S. since 2011. As a pioneer among virtual therapy dogs, he has engaged with tens of thousands of Facebook followers on six continents.

He has been quoted by The Wall Street Journal and other national media. He has appeared on the Animal Planet network, and has raised funds for at-risk dogs and canine cancer research.

Neversink’s Never Bean Better—or simply “Bean”, as this golden retriever is better known—is truly a golden boy among therapy dogs. But fame has not gone to his very pet-able head. For people who are ill, depressed, at risk, disadvantaged or just having a bad day, Bean still delivers his same, welcome message: forget your worries for a while, smile, and live in the moment.

Bean is about sharing the love, and Bean the Dog plush toys help spread that joy. For every one purchased, another is given by Bean and his buddies to a child who is ill or disadvantaged.
