    Why have I never met your employee of the month, Chex? He sounds like a doll and I laughed out loud reading his profile. May I share it on FB? EVERY dog owner can relate to Chex and his antics. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful 4-legged employee with the public. I may have to drop off some Milk-bones for him.

      Hi Sue,
      Dropping off milk bones would earn you a fast and loyal friend forever, he might even show you some of his tricks! Not sure why you haven’t had a chance to meet him, in his younger days he spent a lot of time out in the field but more recently he mostly stays around the market. Feel free to share the article and thanks for your comment!
