Editor’s note: It’s no secret there are hard working dogs, cats and sometimes even more exotic pets who work hard. But while most are tending to traditional animal jobs, others are going to work with their owners and performing “people” jobs at local stores, offices or job sites. Boz is a good example of a canine who has full time job. He works at Sugar Pills Apparel.
Name and occupation:
Boz is a 1 1/2-year-old French Bulldog whose athletic prowess is evident by his compact muscular physique. One look at the OU collar Boz wears, strongly hints that he was ceremoniously named by his human, Josh Boyd, in honor of Boyd’s favorite college football team and his all-time favorite player.
“He’s definitely a Sooner dog,” Boyd says, insisting Boz really is a true die hard OU fan.
While Boz didn’t demonstrate his devotion to the Sooners during his interview, he did display a number of attributes for which his breed is well known. Obviously a handsome guy, Boz is playful, affectionate, patient, easygoing and social — all Frenchie dog qualities.
When customers and visitors come through the door at Sugar Pills Apparel, Boz is the first company representative to meet and greet them. It’s obvious he wants to put visitors at ease. But, is official greeter his real job? Or are his skills in the meet and greet department a cover for his real job — security? The proof Boz has a second job becomes apparent after he has charmed the visitor into letting his or her guard down and he goes into security mode. Nose to the shoes, a pant leg, a hand, Boz finds out where the visitor has been and what he or she has been up to.
It’s true Boz’ nose resembles a boxer’s who has collided with an opponent’s left hook. However, there is absolutely nothing wrong with his ability to smell and discern all there is to know about an individual. A smell over also quickly alerts Boz…
