Furry Friends on the Job: Meet Koda of Ames Silversmithing

Meet Koda. Koda is a 4-year-old Pointing Labrador who loves everyone! He is the beloved pet of Gary and Karen Youngberg, owners of Ames Silversmithing in Ames, Iowa. Working with his humans since he was just a pup, Koda was a bit rambunctious at first but has since settled down to the point “where he isn’t crazy all the time,” says Gary. During his tenure, the lovable Koda has converted some cynophobic (afraid of dogs) customers into dog lovers.

Furry Friends on the Job: Meet Jinx of Sissy’s Log Cabin

Say hello to Jinx the Golden Retriever, the official mascot of Sissy’s Log Cabin with locations in Pine Bluff, Little Rock and Jonesboro, Arkansas, and Memphis, Tennessee. A fifth location in Conway, Arkansas is currently under construction. Jinx was adopted from Heart of Golden Retrievers and has brought much joy and devotion to the family of Sissy’s owners Bill and Sharri Jones. Jinx adores following Bill faithfully wherever he leads and snuggling with Sharri on cozy nights in. With Jinx and his pal Champ in mind, all Sissy’s locations are pet-friendly. “Furry Friends are always welcome!” says Sharri. The duo travel to all the Sissy’s Log Cabin locations. Clients call ahead to see if the dogs are there and in turn will bring their precious fur babies to visit. It is not unusual to find a dog birthday party happening at a Sissy’s Log Cabin store.
