Opening the door of the business office you can except to see at least furry face anxiously awaiting your entrance, but don’t be alarmed! That’s just the Rost Dogs here for their shift. Sometimes you may even find one in the greenhouse or on the lot, getting a little fresh air, or hear one barking when you call in.
One of our favorite perks of the family business is that we can bring our dogs to work, and boy do they love it too. These spoiled pups would rather hang out with us than play in the yard. They know to visit the receptionist when she finishes her yogurt in the morning so they can get the cup or to come running when they hear the lid come off the treat jar on the front counter. Then they settle in on one of the many dog beds spread around for a nap until there is someone new to greet at the door.
