   Introducing the latest addition to

our Store Greeter Team,Loki.Part Swiss Mountain Dog crossed with a North American

Antelope,the "new kid" is being reigned in by the "veteran" little ninja"(behind on the

step)keeping a watchful eye on him.Guess who runs the show..........

There's nothing "low-key" about Loki.He lives up to his name,getting into all kinds of mischief(need a couple of single, size 5 women's shoes and flip-flops?)

At just a year old,his "greeting" bark sounds like a cross between a foghorn and

a tuba at 10 paces.The bonus is he can be heard much better ,over the noise of distorted guitars and table saws here,than a regular doorbell "dinger" when someone drops by.

Thankfully,he's a big,oversized, goofy, pussycat,that looks more like a pipe cleaner walking on four sticks,till he beefs up a bit.

                                   Our Four Legged Greeters(The Security Team)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 It's been a year and then some,and Gizmo hasn't realized he's no longer a pup yet.He's now evolved into a general P.I.T.A (he's not afraid of anything-not a good thing when the Purolator guy could flatten him with his boot).

Be prepared----

Better than a doorbell,the new head of security now has the big dog barking in harmony with him,to announce all visitors.He's slowly taken over the run of the building as he helps ease his Australian mentor & sidekick,into his retirement years.(we can't send him back-his own mother won't have anything to do with him!)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gizmo,the newest addition to the shop,sidekick-in-training for Blaze the Australian.

He's part gremlin/part floor shammy with teeth/part wind-up toy.

I'm pretty sure he has a key that goes in the back somewhere.

My wife said she wanted "a laptop"--I thought I heard "lap dog"......................

Also referred to as the 4 legged, door alarm.

Don't be alarmed-Your arrival will be "announced" with his typical bark(that's his job) -

and his signature butt wiggle...............
