Replacements, Ltd.
Featured Pet (and Pet Owner!)


This month we feature “Hermione,” a bichon frise who belongs to Treva Brackett, supervisor in Replacements’ china/crystal inventory department. Hermione’s story begins after the death of Treva’s good friend in late January, 2002. Treva was so depressed at the time that she announced to her husband and then-ten-year-old son that she either wanted to have another baby or adopt a puppy. Needless to say, the puppy won out! Treva and her son set out to find the perfect match for their family, which included two cats, “Thomas” and “Sammy.” They found Hermione at a local pet store and took her home in February, 2002. “My son named Hermione after the intellectual and spunky heroine of the Harry Potter book series he was reading,” Treva said, “It’s a very long name for a very small bichon frise! Even today people have a hard time getting that name right.”

Hermione immediately fit right in with Treva’s busy lifestyle of baseball and music, and immediately took control of everyone in the family. “She is quite the clown, as is typical of her breed, and we never have a dull moment with her in our lives,” Treva said. Hermione not only believes that she is a cat herself, but also a very skilled “cat herder.” Treva said, “When the outside door is left open and the cats think that they may escape, Hermione heads them off at the pass every time.” Hermione also has another trick that she does when it's time for her dinner. “She pulls out one of her toys and throws it around the room, only to fetch and throw it again,” Treva said. “She does this throwing and fetching routine until her food bowl is placed in its proper spot on the floor!”

Treva has worked at Replacements, Ltd. in the china and crystal departments for almost eighteen years, and has found it to be the most educational and interesting place to work that she’s experienced. “Replacements has been a wonderful place to learn new things every day about our products, and I have gained so much more experience working as a supervisor to help others in our areas learn as well,” Treva said. When asked about Replacements’ pet-friendly policy, Treva said, “The pet policy is just one of the many special and unusual benefits that we share here at Replacements, and it brings many a smile from both employees and customers when we can take a brief moment to acknowledge and greet our everyday ‘pet employees.’”
