“Rocky” is a beautiful all-black pomeranian who belongs to Ada Vranjaca, a member of the space management department at Replacements Ltd. “I wanted to give my daughter a pet for her sixteenth birthday,” Ada said, “so I contacted Gayle Fible, my coworker here at Replacements, and she helped me find Rocky.”
Gayle had learned about "Blackie” (as Rocky was then called) while visiting the groomer with her dogs. At the time, Rocky had recently become homeless when his elderly owner had to enter a nursing facility. Gayle said, “I remembered Ada had asked me if I knew where she could find a pomeranian, so on a Friday after work Ada and her husband followed me to the groomer’s to meet Rocky. Ada took pictures from her phone and sent them to their daughters, and they decided to take Rocky home for a trial period. The next week I was happy to learn Ada and her family decided to adopt Rocky, because he is a terrific dog. She said her daughters were so excited when they got home!”
Ada says, “Rocky travels with us to my daughter’s softball games, where he is often the center of attention at the ball field.” Ada also says Rocky understands her when she talks to him – “When I ask for hugs, he understands and gives me a hug. When I say it is TV time, he goes to the living room to watch with the family!”
According to Ada, Rocky has brought a lot of joy not only to her daughter, but also to the entire family. “Rocky is very much loved and appreciated at our house, and returns his love with each laughing moment,” Ada said.
When asked about the pet-friendly policy at Replacements, Ada said, “I am just very happy to be able to bring my dog with me to work. It makes me and my dog very happy, and makes my day.” When asked about working at Replacements in general, Ada said, “It is a wonderful place to work, and am very proud to be a part of the Replacements family.”
