Allie provides emotional support to pharmacy visitors and staff as well as security for the front door should any runners or bicyclists like to pass by. She loves lots of attention and will let you know when she needs more. Barking at squirrels is also a passion.
Ella is an introspective who loves to snuggle and assume that everyone knows she is a lap dog despite her 50 lbs. She too likes to patrol the front door and enjoys giving squirrels a hard time. She is very loyal and is always excited to see someone new.
We are sad to report that Ella battled heart disease for the last year and a half and lost her battle November 8, 2020. She will always have an indelible presence at the store as she loved being there and receiving lots of attention from visitors. She is forever etched in our hearts and memories.
