In September, inspired by the 4Ocean movement, we headed to a local beach here on Long Island in New York to see if we could bag us some trash! We had a wonderful day on the beach with our fabulous four-legged friends and we thought you might like to meet us all.
Daniela and her fun-loving dog Sadie. Sadie is a 2-year-old rescue – we’re told she’s a German Shepard mix. Sadie LOVES to play with all dogs and people and can’t get enough attention. She has endless energy but loves to snuggle next to her momma at the end of a long day. Sadie loves to play with her toys and it’s become clear that her life’s mission includes getting the stuffing from her toys all over the house for mommy to clean up. She also loves treats, belly rubs, kisses, and walks! Daniela works in sales and marketing at HomeoPet, so she’s well clued in to Sadie’s sales tricks to help get her more attention.
Juliana joined us with her dog Coco – a 6 year old Cocker Spaniel that lucky Juliana received as a gift. Running and playing is his life and Coco LOVES to play fetch so he can pretend to hunt and pounce on his toys/ball! Juliana works in sales and customer service here at HomeoPet and her mission is to keep pet owners and their pets happy.
Ingrid and her gorgeous German Shepard Kimba. Kimba will be 7 years old in December and has been coming to the HomeoPet office since she was a puppy! Every morning we come into the office, she greets us all as though she has not seen us in years!. Not much gets by her. If any co-worker steps away from their desk, she is right there checking to see what they are up to and patrols the hallways to ensure everything is in order. In between, she is busy attending meetings, taking a nap every so often and waiting for the FedEx and UPS delivery men to make their deliveries. They are the highlight of her day as she gets to inspect their trucks while giving some uncontrolled (and unfortunately sometimes unrequited!) loving.
Paul, the newest member of our team is our National Sales Account Manager. Unfortunately no four legged friend could join Paul on our beach clean up trip this time, but that did give him more time to find trash!
Amanda headed to the beach with her grandparents dog Barney – a 9 year old boxer and the biggest mush ever! He’s your best friend (especially if you have food) and when he was younger he loved going on the boat! He lost an eye a few years ago to a tumor, but this happy loving guy doesn’t let that slow him down! Amanda works in shipping and receiving in the HomeoPet warehouse and is super-efficient, ensuring you all get your orders on time, every time!
Anita and her pooch Tyler – a 12lb 6-year-old Miniature Poodle with a huge personality. Tyler loves to play ball and even when there’s no one to play with him, he plays by himself with a ball and a blanket, pushing the ball with his nose like a seal! Anita is Chief Financial Controller here at HomeoPet, but when it comes to Tyler, there’s no expense spared!
Mark – MD Homeopet Europe – getting into the spirit of the day!
Mercedes (below left) is amongst the newest members of our staff at HomeoPet. She is the Assistant Supply Chain Manager and we’re delighted to welcome her to the HomeoPet family. Mercedes is holding Mags dog Ziggy (second from left below). Ziggy is a Mama’s boy! He Loves to go in the car, stick his head out the window and say hello to everyone. He also loves his walks as he’s very social and meets and greets everyone in the neighborhood. He loves when his mom sits on the floor and talks to him. Mags says 2he is truly my buddy – he makes me smile. What can I say…animals love us unconditionally.” Too right Mags!
Aindriu and his dog Maui. ‘It was a dark and stormy night…….no it really wasn’t. It was the beginning of the new year (2018), and my fiancé and I were still getting settled into our new home. We spoke many times about getting a pup at some point, but nothing concrete. Then came that fateful day; Katie tagged along with her sister to the local pet shop to purchase some food for her sisters’ reptiles. Shortly after entering the shop, Katie went directly to the puppy section as she always does whenever she gets a chance to stop by. This time was different than all the others, Katie locked eyes with a 2-month-old Bernese Mountain Dog, and it was love at first sight. Katie picked him up in her arms and could barely compose herself between sobs and shaking. She somehow managed to hold her phone still long enough to send me a picture of Maui, followed by one with her holding the already massive beast. While I was sitting at home, I received the pictures followed by a very emotional phone call asking if we could buy him. I didn’t hesitate to say yes and sign my soul/life savings over to the pet store. I did have some mixed feelings at the time about buying a pure bread, not more so because of the price tag but since my family has always rescued dogs. Hesitations aside, Maui has been a true gift to our household. He brings nothing but goofy happy energy, horrible smelling farts, and a plethora of shaggy hair to the table. While still less than a year old, Maui has reinforced that life is all about the simple pleasures and enjoying time while you have it. It is so easy to get caught up in life, and it is such a blessing to have an animal be there for you in good and bad times.’
And last, but not least – Daniel Farrington; President and CEO of HomeoPet. A man whose passion and inspiration is match only by that of his brother Tom (who unfortunately couldn’t join us as he is in residence with his veterinary practice in the west of Ireland) in bringing safe, pure and 100% natural Pet Medicines to animals around the world.
