“Equal time for shop dogs?” he asked – and sent this

We’ve introduced you to three West Seattle “Shop Cats” so far — Seth at West Seattle Nursery (story here) and Presta and Schrader at Aaron’s Bicycle Repair (story here). Along the way, a few people have asked if we plan to highlight “Shop Dogs” too – we’d planned to wait till the “Shop Cats” ran their course, but then Rock Steele sent us the photo above, and this caption:

This is Baron with his person Scott Goerig – owner of Redline Music and Sports on 35th Ave SW just south of Avalon. Baron can be found most days at the Redline greeting guests as they arrive, checking to make sure that everything is OK and policing the floor between naps.

Thanks, Rock, Baron, and Scott! Meantime, we’ve already got more “Shop Cats” in queue – watch this space. (And one plug for a Shop Cat with a special event coming up – West Seattle Nursery’s spring open house is this Saturday, April 11th, more info on the WSN website.)

    Or a cat! We always say we want to come back as a cat in our next life.

    Thanks for showing Baron. He’s adorable. I love the shop dog/cats stories! They really lighten up the news.

    Love these shop cats/dogs posts. Any other shop animals? How about local groomers/vets/dog walkers?

    Great picture! I LOVE Baron! He’s got to be one of the most laid back dogs around!

    Both dog and human are delicious eye candy.

    Let me start with the letting everyone know that Baron lives at my house half the week. I have his dog food, I have bowls for him to drink his filtered water from, and from time to time I have cleaned doggy barf. Baron only barks when he thinks that the person at the door is a stranger, when actually it is me. With all this being said, I love Baron. I love his wet hair on my floor. I love his wonderful farts while sitting next to me. This is my favorite dog of all time……..Baron is part of the family and always will be. I just wish all of you could get to know him like me.

Sorry, comment time is over.
