Our Best Friends - The Mascots

Clarence Harney
In the days following the death of Elyse Harney’s best friend and husband of 61 years, Elyse Harney stayed with her daughter’s family in Lakeville.  Late one evening, a Dachshund scratched at the door asking to come in.  It took two days for the family to learn that the dog had traveled from her home almost a mile away, apparently just to snuggle up with Elyse and offer her comfort. 

After helping the dog back to her home, family members reached out to a rescue shelter to discover another Dachshund – this time male – needing a home.  A shelter representative brought the dog to meet Elyse and it was love at first sight!  She promptly decided to name him Clarence after the angel in It’s A Wonderful Life because she believed Papa John had sent him to bring her solace and ease her loneliness.  The love goes both ways and the happy little dance Clarence performs when Elyse returns after being away would make you laugh with his contagious, unbridled joy.

These days, to see Elyse without Clarence is a rare sight and – despite his small stature – he takes his responsibilities as her guardian very seriously.  If Elyse is at her desk, you can be certain Clarence is nearby, ready to defend his beloved Mistress from any and all dangers that might present themselves, (or simply to make certain she knows someone is entering the building!)

Cloe Moore, born in February 2016……she has been a sweetheart all her life.
Very affectionate – loves to hug certain people and put her paw around smaller animals. Loves to cuddle her mom all night. Brings to her mom…baby bunnies (unharmed). Loves to run around the yard with a shoe in her mouth – only chews up the most expensive ones or the most special (like her mom’s friend’s shoes on the day of her daughter’s wedding).

Loves to dig holes – very, very deep holes. Follows her mom everywhere in the house and puts her paw or her head on her foot every time mom stops for even a moment. Can run extremely fast – can nearly outrun a deer. Once she learns something, she’s got it down.
Loves to make everyone happy.

Cooper Morris,  the Spirit of Logan
In the photo with his 2 best friends, Brittany and John Morris.
Cooper was born on August 12, 2016, to a great Golden Retriever family not too far away in Boston Corners, NY.  All his brothers and sisters had great personalities, but in the end, Cooper chose us as his longtime companions. Cooper is a terrific dog, friendly to all who comes his way.  He comes to work every day to our Salisbury office, hanging out with his other canine companions,  and hanging out with anyone who will give him attention and treats. Cooper is a 2 ball retriever; do not throw just 1 ball, he only responds to 2, that stack up neatly in his mouth. He prefers the lake for ball retrieval but enjoys the big backyard for ground ball recovery. He is a wonderful dog and best friend.  After losing our other best friend, Logan, Cooper has filled the void of canine companionship with the Morris family.
