Featured Pet (and Pet Owner!)
“Marco” is an adorable miniature poodle that belongs to Sherry Pinedo, a member of our Purchasing staff. Sherry describes Marco as “his own man.” This two-year-old poodle came to Sherry after her former dog, “Bo,” passed away. Unbeknownst to Sherry, her coworkers had taken up a collection for her to get a new dog. A friend contacted Sherry to let her know that she had found a black poodle. Sherry immediately fell in love with Marco and had to have him. This also represented the first time that Sherry had not adopted a rescue dog.
Marco is well known around Replacements, Ltd. He is very friendly and is often seen carrying an empty water bottle in his mouth, as this is one of his favorite toys. Often you will see Sherry coming into or leaving work with Marco striding confidently beside her, carrying his water bottle! Sherry said that there is not much that frightens Marco. However, if he hears children playing, he will sometimes run under the desk and bark a couple of times. Sherry advised this happens because Marco has not been exposed to children on a regular basis. Recently, Marco was bred and four of his offspring have stayed with us at Replacements, Ltd. due to his offspring being adopted by other members of Replacements’ staff!
We asked Sherry what is the most fun part of having her dog at work. She said, “I love having Marco with me. If I am feeling stressed or having a down day, all I have to do is look at Marco and realize that he loves me and things get better.”
