Stan's Chrome-Plated Tech Tips

How much is that doggie in the window?
When I opened Stan’s Tech Garage, my first goal was to be able to offer outstanding computer service and repair to the local communities of West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Greater Los Angeles, and beyond. But I had an ulterior motive: I really wanted to be able to bring my dog Reese, to work.
Why was this so important? Reese doesn’t know much about servicing Macs or PCs, virus removal, or data recovery, but she’s working on it! What she does bring with her is an instant morale boost in these early dog-days of the business. She also happens to be the best welcoming committee we could ask for. And all it costs us are treats and attention. Even in these trying times, that's a bargain at twice the price. Oh, and she loves other dogs, so if you’re coming by our shop, feel free to bring yours.
So here are the vitals on Reese, since people are always asking:
Breed: ½ Weimaraner (for sure) / ½ German Shorthaired Pointer (we think)
Age: 4 ½
Weight: A very fit 60 lbs
Favorite Treat: Whole Foods Tacos
Favorite Toy: Orbee-Tuff Ball on a Rope, Laser Pointer
Favorite Place: Hiking at Runyon Canyon or in bed with Mommy and Daddy
Favorite Movie: Marmaduke
Favorite Actor: George (he played Marmaduke)
Best Friend: Peanut (Mini Schnauzer)
Likes: Water, Food, Playtime, Other Dogs, Walks, Hikes, Belly Rubs, People (in that order)
Dislikes: Baths, Being Scolded, Extreme Heat, Anyone holding a bag that could potentially swing close to her, Not getting to say Hi to other dogs
That’s our Reesie in a nutshell. She insists on greeting everyone who comes in, so don’t be shy. She may let out a bark now and then, but that’s just her way of saying “Welcome!” Bring a treat and you may just find yourself with a new best friend.
So next time you’re shopping for some computer services (or you’re just at the Whole Foods in West Hollywood), Reesie wants you to come on over. Can you really say no to that face?
