The Dogs of Vermont Awards & Engraving
Since 1996 we have always had dogs and at this point there would be unhappy customers if we didn't have a calm, friendly greeter! First there was Hazel, she moved to Vermont with us in 1996 and she was thrilled to come to work. In 2000 we got Ivy, our first chocolate lab. She was so overflowing with love and personality that Hazel sometimes was ignored but she took it gracefully. She died in 2009 at nearly 15. Ivy was alone for awhile and then we adopted Duke who was 7. Never very enthusiastic as a showroom dog he didn't mind retiring in 2013 when Steve retired. He was immediately followed by 8 week-old Usha who loves her job and has many of the same eccentric behaviors as Ivy.
