Hi! My name is Charlie Cochran and I have been the Avenue Realty office dog my entire life. I am the sort of dog that loves everyone I meet (except if you are wearing sunglasses and a hat while carrying something suspicious). I take my job at the office very seriously. Every day when someone comes to the office I wag my tail and make a really big deal of their arrival. This sort of thing makes humans really happy.
Sometimes when my human friends need a break from work I let them dress me up in silly things and take my photo for Instagram. They laugh a lot when they do this and then they feel they can get “back to their day”. I don’t mind doing it because it makes them so happy. Except for the one time they put me in a dog hoodie and the hood was covering my eyes for awhile and no one noticed. But we have learned to tuck the hood in so I can continue to wear my “Ruff time selling your home? Call me” hoodie.
I am also really good at sitting by their feet so they can pet me when they are on a phone call that seems to be upsetting them. That mostly happens when they start saying the word “contract” a lot. I know its really bad when they close their office door to take the call. That’s when I wait outside the door until the call is over so I am available for pets and hugs when they tell the other people in the office about what happened.
I don’t want to come across as bragging, but I have won Employee of the Quarter every quarter. If it is a fact, that means it isn’t bragging, right? Sometimes I think maybe one of the humans will get the award but so far that hasn’t happened.
If you come by the office, they leave a jar of treats at the front desk. Feel free to grab one and give it to me. I may bark upon your arrival even though I know I am not supposed to. Honestly, it is fun to hear everyone in the office yell, “Charlie! Stop.” Usually that is followed by a treat to keep me quiet. Humans are so easy to train! I can’t wait to meet you (and get a treat)!
