At Writer’s Relief, we value the hard work and dedication of our staff. Meet our team mascot, Buddy! He is a Border Collie mix, about 13 years old. He was rescued by our staff member Hermine, who found him on adoption day at PetSmart. She was told that he was vicious, which, as you can tell, must be true. But Hermine, being a dog lover and skeptical of the story, put her fingers into the cage; Buddy leaned on her hand, and the rest is history. That was Christmas, 12 years ago. When things get stressful here at the office, Buddy is the calm in the eye of the storm. Buddy loves everyone! (He also loves to swim and chase squirrels.)
UPDATE: In April of 2009, Buddy passed away. The entire staff is thankful that Hermine was kind enough to allow us all to share in Buddy’s life. He was a gentle, happy soul and we all will miss him.
