(RETIRED) Gabby and Bailey Gabby and Bailey were an integral part of Cartier Financial early on. When in the office, their main focus was to greet each and every client with a wag of their tails and happy faces.Gabby was adopted from the South Lake Animal League in 2009. The Animal League requires someone be at home for their newly adopted puppies. In order to adopt Gabby, Patti had to be able to bring Gabby to work. While now retired, Gabby still enjoys coming in for a visit every now and then. Kelly adopted Bailey from the South Lake Animal League as a puppy in 2012. Bailey loved her job at Cartier Financial, but now prefers a slower pace of life and relaxing at home, especially when she has it all to herself while mom works. Shelby - May She Rest in PeaceShelby, like Bailey and Gabby, loved coming to work every day to greet clients and take care of any extra treats clients needed to give away. She was a loyal pup and could sense when her presence was needed. Often finding her way to your feet to rest and console. If she didn't come out to greet you, you'd probably find her paws and tail sticking out from under Kelly's desk.Shelby lived a wonderful 10+ years, bringing smiles and joy to everyone she met. She never met a ball or stick she didn't like and could often be seen carrying branches twice her size down the sidewalk. She will be forever missed and remembered in our hearts.
