Working Dogs BY MICHAEL CHATFIELD PHOTOGRAPHY BY KELLI ULDALL 82 C A R M E L M A G A Z I N E • W I N T E R 2 0 1 8 Ellie A nother happy canine camper, Ellie is a Coton de Tulear that works with Sarah Adams, owner of the Raw Connection. "I adopted her from one of my customers," Adams says. Ellie had to have back surgery, and she spent her recovery time in Adams' office. She's all better now, but "she insists on coming to work with me every day. She's determined to be here." Ellie gets to sample the new treats her owner is thinking of adding to the store. If she likes them she gobbles them up; if she doesn't, they stay on the floor. When Ellie first came into Adams' life, she was a very picky eater. No more. "Since I put her on a raw food diet, she can't wait for mealtime," her owner says. Sebastian W hile Diversified Capital Funding Mortgage Consultant Dan Divine is helping his human clients to buy a home, this 11-year-old Shih Tzu is right beside him, making sure that everything is copacetic for the buyer's furry friends. "Sebastian puts a smile on the face of everyone he sees," Divine says. "That helps break the ice when I meet a new client. He loves everybody." He's especially happy if those clients have thought to bring treats and cookies. "If not, he goes back to sleep — usually on my desk." "Money can buy you a fine dog, but only love can make him wag his tail." ~ Kinky Friedman
