Featured Pet - March 2005
Our featured pet for this month is Charmin, an adorable Bichon Frise. Her owner, Arnitre Rosser, is a member of our sales team. Both Charmin and Arnitre have been with us for a little over four years. Charmin is sometimes called “Princess” because she is so spoiled.
Arnitre received Charmin as a gift from a friend, Renee. Renee was looking for the perfect home for a small dog. Arnitre admits that she had never heard of a Bichon Frise before getting Charmin. Bichon Frises are sometimes referred to as “powder puff” dogs. They generally have a happy and outgoing demeanor and are relatively small. Arnitre was shocked at how hyperactive Charmin was. Arnitre spent a great deal of time training Charmin and soon the dog became a model canine citizen at Replacements, Ltd.
Occasionally, Arnitre works at our front desk answering phones and greeting customers. Charmin generally accompanies Arnitre to the front desk where she naps by Arnitre’s computer. Some of our customers know Charmin by her given name, and others call her “The Princess of Replacements.” Arnitre said that Charmin has become so docile that sometimes customers think that she is a stuffed animal.
Charmin has also been called a “diva dog.” Almost anytime you pass Arnitre in the halls of Replacements she is carrying Charmin with her. Charmin loves treats and loves receiving attention from all of her “aunts” and “uncles” at Replacements. If you have a treat for Charmin, then you are guaranteed to have a close friend for at least the next ten minutes. However, Charmin has also been known to display real “diva dog” tendencies and may simply ignore those she doesn’t have the inclination to play with. Arnitre says that these are sometimes the habits of a diva, but Charmin is lovable just the same, and loves coming to work at Replacements.
