Leslie Troup, a member of Replacements, Ltd. Purchasing department, and Kevin Boyd in our Online Auctions department were introduced to “Chubbs” three months ago, after hearing that a coworker’s neighbors were trying to give their little yellow puppy away. “The one thing they were giving away was something I knew I had to have,” Leslie said. “It took quite a bit of sweet-talking at first, but Kevin and our other dog, ‘Charger,’ were soon ready to welcome Chubbs as a new addition to our family.” (Needless to say, Charger took a little more convincing that he was in need of a new friend!)
It wasn’t long, however, before Chubbs was readily accepted into both Leslie’s family and the family here at Replacements, Ltd. “The past few months have flown by with Chubbs as the new addition into our family,” Leslie said. “He has adapted well in the Purchasing department’s family, too.” Whether he is sitting atop Leslie’s desk or sleeping alongside her chair on his blanket, Chubbs has become quite the centerpiece in her cubicle! “Chubbs has quickly earned ‘top dog’ status with the multiple coworkers who visit often to show some love or give him a treat!” Leslie said.
“The best part about my relationship with Chubbs is that I get to bring him to work,” Leslie said. “Kevin and I both are fortunate enough to work at such a great place, because I don’t know what we would do if we couldn’t have Charger and Chubbs by our side – it has definitely made things easier being able to bring them so we don’t have to worry about them all day.” In the mornings, Charger and Chubbs often seem more eager to get up and go to work than Leslie and Kevin! “They run to the car and wait for their daily ride to Replacements,” Leslie said.
When asked about Replacements’ pet-friendly policy, Leslie said, “If I was unable to bring Chubbs to work, I wouldn’t be able to spend near as much time with him as he deserves. This way I am able to spend quality time with him all day – I’m just glad he loves coming with me, but he has no idea how much I love bringing him!”
