IN LOVING MEMORY - 2000-2017 I am a Polish Lowland Sheepdog and I have been with my mom’s company since 2002 when she rescued me from some very mean people. I love my new life at home and especially at work. My main job is to make people smile and to keep children occupied. My duties include greeting clients, doing tricks,(of course for treats), and generally being adorable. In my free time I love swimming in the river, chewing on squeaky toys, making new furry friends, sleeping, and playing with my family.
