The Father and Son Team
Can a father and son run a business without much friction? Well, so far its working out very well. However, we do have one strict Division of Labor rule: Patrick does all the work and I count the money. Just kidding. Actually, without tripping over ourselves, weve managed to get things done despite quite a bit of overlap in responsibility. If there is a division, it goes something like this. Im responsible for getting the orders and Patrick is responsible for making sure we have the product and you receive it in a timely manner. So far its a formula that has worked.
In addition to Patrick and myself, we have a webmaster. Donn handles all the technical stuff, like making sure the shopping cart works properly. Pretty important part of the website, Id say. And Chris handles customer service and shipping.
Oh, and there is one more member of our team. Hes our part-time model Quincy. Spencer is a 9-year old Sheltie who weighs 45 lbs. and is perfect for modeling medium to large size beds. Plus he works for very littlesome of the treats we sell, of course! Hes a great friend and companion. And he looks good on the masthead (as does Olivia, our cat).
While weve only been in business for a relatively short time (since 7/1/01) weve lived through the usual growing pains and we think we have an exciting site offering quality products very competitively priced. We hope you agree. Based upon sales, we think you do.
Thanks for shopping our online store. We do appreciate your business.
