Human Companion

We have a newish feature where the human companion of the Friend of the Month – Friends, in this case – tells us a little something about them. Take it away, Chris B!
“Chevy dog, the little brown female, came into my life when I was 48. She was my very first dog. I look back now, and all those wasted years without a dog, how did I ever bear it! We were looking at a 3-family for sale in a slightly bad area of Springfield, Chevy was one of 20 puppies in a medium dog crate. Her status was one-up from runt. We brought her home as a graduation present for our son, but she chose us instead. A few months later, same scenario, we got Cotton (at 4 weeks old, yikes) and Chevy, spayed and all, was the perfect mom to Cotton. She let him chew on her muzzle till the hair turned white.
Chevys favorite pastime is driving around in my truck and standing on the console between the 2 bucket seats and being ‘console surfer’, and her absolute favorite thing while console surfing is waiting until you have to look right, so she can give you a Dog Wash, because, don’t you know, you must have something on your face that needs to be cleaned off?”

    What a wonderful story to start the day! Two lucky pups and their very lucky people!

    Good morning, all! I may be retiring sooner than I thought. Layoffs are going on. Owner is trying to slim down overhead. I would rather work through this year, but if it happens, I will manage.

    Good morning B, BooBear, Hobbitz. Wose and everyone. Two lucky dogs there and we are enjoying their story. Chris B. We came to dogdom late but not for lack of trying. Now we are a happy and spoiled herd and love to give our people saliva facials 🤪.

    Good Day to Everyone!

    What a Great Story, Chris B! Chevy and Cotton sound like a Dynamic Duo.

    Welcome back CHobbitz. Sorry to hear the Baby Alpacas are on Back-Order. We were about to ask for one too.

    ML and BooBear, So Very Sorry for your loss.

    But BooBear! What’s this…no more Yearning for Fridays? The proposed Layoff could possibly come with a Severance Package too…an Added Bonus to be sure. Pondering…do companies even offer that anymore?

    Not sure when it will happen (if it does). This is a small family owned company who has always done very well. Now new companies have set up that are on a much smaller scale with almost no overhead (office out of their home, run on a few crews and rent their equipment). Therefore, they can bid the work without the overhead that we have to cover in a job. We will see what happens.

    BooBear: It’s sounds like a Great Place to Work. Paws crossed you are able to work throughout the yeas as planned.

    Could we please have Rio’s alpacas? Their hair is so dreamy and since June 6 is world wide knit in public day, it would be nice to share. It is ok to crochet or do needlework, too. Our county library is hosting it here. Sounds like fun.
