Hi, I’m Ella!

Hi. My name is Ella. I am a Bernese Mountain Dog, and the owner of Mountain Dog Sign Company. OK, I’m not really the owner…I’m the mascot, but the business is named after me.

I think I should be getting more treats for all the work I do around here. My job is pretty tough. I greet the clients as they come in the door, and then I bark or whine until I get a treat. I have my mom trained.

She doesn’t like me to be annoying in front of the clients, so if I bark a couple of times when someone is here, mom gives me a dog bone. I also get a treat when the staff meets for production meetings. Everyone stands around discussing products and timelines and if I whine or bark, mom gives me a treat. Recurring theme here?

I can also get food about the time mom eats lunch. She’ll eat at her desk and if I stick my nose up by her elbow, I can nudge her and get a cracker, part of a sandwich, or wait for it…a dog treat. We have two treat bowls in the office. One at the front desk, and one by mom’s desk. We buy dog bones at Costco, so we almost never run out. That makes me happy. You’d think I would weigh A LOT with all the treats I get, but I’m just under 100 lbs. I had wanted to tell you about my company but SQUIRREL! … got distracted when we started talking about treats, maybe next blog. All this talk about food has made me hungry. I think I’ll find mom and give a bark or two. She knows the drill.
