TownsPet of the Week Tessi

The Andover Townsman

---- — Four-year-old Tessi, the Bardetti family’s wheaten terrier, has a knack for making everyone smile because she is extremely friendly and ridiculously fluffy. Tessi was born in one of her family’s favorite places — Oak Bluffs in Martha’s Vineyard. She loves taking walks and playing with her human siblings — Sophie, 13; Julia, 11; and Luke, 8. She also enjoys watching Red Sox games — which isn’t all that surprising since she was named after the Dropkick Murphys’ song, “Tessie,” which is played after every Sox victory at Fenway.
