Many of us here at Earthbound Trading Company bring our dogs into the office on Fridays (affectionately called Dog Day Fridays). Just as they do at home, our beloved dogs bring a great amount of enjoyment to our work day, and are forefront in our minds as we grow our Earthbone pet assortment and brand.
We wanted to give our customers a chance to get to know these inspirational pets on a personal basis.
Today’s pet profile is Scout Gassaway. She belongs to Jenn Gassaway (Visual Merchandise Manager).
Nickname: Sausage, Fatty, or Scouty. She answers to all.
Age: 8 years.
Breed: Australian Shepherd (yet her bark bears no accent)
Favorite Foods: Other than food in general – cheese, bread, bacon, and of course Dog for Dog’s Dogsbutter
Dislikes: Rain, Action Movies, and Thunder
Known for: Excessive drooling. Especially when food is involved.
Although Scout comes from cow herders on a working ranch, her preferred profession is Couch Potato. She is not a huge fan of the outdoor heat and instead opts for the pleasantness of a climate controlled environment, most optimally ‘Mom’s” bed when this is available. She has been with “Mom” Jenn Gassaway since the tender age of 8 weeks old.
When the weather is pleasant, Scout does enjoy a good game of frisbee or ball. She is an excellent catcher of both. Additionally, she is very good with children. Her very best friend is a small 3 year old boy and she does whatever it takes to take care of him and his family.
Scout’s guilty pleasures include dressing up. She particularly likes hats and has been spotted in a wide array of styles.
Finally, Scout is a certified Good Citizen with aspirations of being a Therapy Dog. Her primary areas of focus would include working with children who have reading/speech issues and spending time with the elderly in retirement homes. We applaud Scout for her desire to give back to her community in such a noble fashion.
