Featured Pet - September 2004
This month, we have a very special story to share that is really indicative of the spirit of the Replacements, Ltd. pet friendly policy. Carolyn Barber has been an associate in our customer service department since 1999. Carolyn really loves animals! She has six dogs: Chyna, Mason, Peaches, Doodle, Trixie, and Molly. With the exception of Chyna, all of Carolyn's dogs are strays and rescues that she has adopted.
Two and one-half years ago, Carolyn’s chocolate poodle “Coco Puff” passed away in an unfortunate accident. Coco Puff had been coming to work with Carolyn for a number of years. Carolyn’s coworkers were heartbroken when they heard the news about Coco Puff. Her friends soon launched an all-out hunt for a new chocolate poodle. After four weeks, Carolyn and her coworkers located a breeder about 200 miles away. Carolyn and her daughters set up an appointment with the breeder and traveled to see if they could find a new chocolate poodle. Carolyn saw a party-colored poodle and it was love at first sight. Carolyn named her new canine friend "Chyna," a name inspired by Replacements! Chyna has been coming to work with Carolyn since she was six weeks old. Chyna celebrated her 2nd birthday on August 30, 2004.
Chyna has adjusted well to her routine at Replacements, Ltd. Each morning she visits all of her “aunts and uncles” for treats. She spends a great deal of the day napping, and she loves children. Carolyn describes Chyna as being a bit “pampered.” Carolyn had this to say about the Replacements, Ltd. pet friendly policy, “The Replacements, Ltd. pet policy is the main reason that I applied to work here. It’s a great place to work and working with pets makes the time spent here a pleasure.”
