As you might expect, especially given the line of business we are in, the folks who work here at Dogwise have a lot of dogs, many who come to work every day. And of course we think they are a pretty special group of dogs. Little did we know, however, that Sadie the Pug - who belongs to our product guru DJ - would experience her 15 minutes of fame a couple days ago in her role as a search and rescue dog, not something you ordinarily associate with Pugs. When DJ came to work announcing with pride, "Sadie made her first live find!" we all thought DJ was a bit crazy (DJ, the woman who has a screen saver of a Pug licking her computer screen). But it turns out the other day as Sadie was patrolling around her home, she uncovered an elderly neighbor who had fallen down a steep hill and then "alerted" DJ that she had found something important. While we will never know for sure, there is a good chance that the gentleman might have died if he had not been uncovered, so Sadie really did perform a heroic feat. Read more about Sadie and her "find" in this link to the story in the local Wenatchee newspaper.
OK - now back to business! One thing we traditionally do every six months is to let you know what our current best sellers are. So here is a selection of what your fellow dog enthusiasts have been buying the most so far this year.
