This month we are delighted to feature the lovable “Roy” and “Helen.” Both dogs are Yorkshire Terriers and belong to Jill Boerger, a member of our Manufacturer’s Inventory staff. Jill and her husband were always dog lovers. A few years ago, their Labrador retriever died. After this, Jill felt there was an emptiness in their home. Her husband suggested that they look for another dog. Jill knew of a local breeder of “Yorkies” and went to look at her most recent litter. Meeting Roy was love at first sight. Jill said that the decision to adopt Roy was an easy one.
Helen is the most recent Yorkie addition to the Boerger family. She is only 5 months old. Helen is a small dog from a large farm. The owner contacted Jill and told her that Helen liked to run with all of the other animals on the farm but also had a penchant to wander off. The owner of the farm thought it would be best to find a stable and smaller home for the dog. When Jill went to see the dog, she adopted her on the spot. Helen has amazingly lost her interest in “wandering off” and now prefers to cuddle in Jill’s arms or lap.
Jill usually brings one or both of her dogs to work with her. If you come to visit us, you can watch Roy or Helen tag along as Jill inspects the many pieces of china that Replacements, Ltd. receives directly from manufacturers each day. We asked Jill, “What is the most fun part of being able to bring Roy and Helen to work?” She responded by saying, “I love the Replacements, Ltd. pet friendly policy because it keeps the dogs from being locked in the house all day long.” Jill also says that having her dogs at work has allowed her to meet many people throughout Replacements, Ltd. and make new friends.
