This month, we feature two adorable miniature schnauzers, “Habberdash” and “Porsche.” These handsome dogs belong to Don Vasses, a member of our China Inventory team. Don moved to North Carolina in 1994 from Jamestown, New York. After settling in, Don received a male Schnauzer as a gift. He named the dog Habberdash. At the time that he received him, Habberdash was only three months old. A year later, Don got a female miniature schnauzer and named her Porsche. This loving puppy was acquired so that Habberdash would have companionship and the rest, as they say, is history.
Don says that Porsche never fails to wake him up for work. Habberdash, on the other hand, prefers sleeping in. The two dogs, while obviously having different bio-rhythms, love each other dearly. They also enjoy immensely rides with Don in his truck, and are always ready to take a trip at a moments notice. Habberdash and Porsche have also become parents together, having had two litters, 11 puppies altogether. Many of those puppies went to loving and caring homes with other Replacements, Ltd. employees.
When asked what he liked most about Replacements pet-friendly policy, Don had this to say, “I love our pet-friendly policy. It reduces stress and makes me happy. It seems as though I’m greeted by a tail-wagging best friend in every department.”
We invite you to come visit us in person, and see for yourself the assortment of tail-wagging friends that visit us each day, both with our employees, and our customers!
