This week marks the start of the 139th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. It's not unusual to see a dog in the halls of Sierra Trading Post's headquarters in Cheyenne, Wyo. Beemer, the German Shorthair Pointer frequents the headquarters and the fulfillment center and other dogs, such as Angelyne The Amazing Deaf Cattle Dog are brought into the photo studio to model dog beds.
Not all of our favorite dogs get to come to work so we thought we'd host our own Sierra Trading Post Dog Show here on the Sierra Social Hub.
Abby is a 3-year old pure breed Saint Bernard. She was rescued from a puppy farm at nine months old. She loves snow and beer but hates summer and bath time. She belongs to Merchandise Buyer, Tina Clark. Ellie Mae is a German Shorthaired Pointer who loves exploring the outdoors and thinking up creative ways to take up even more space in the bed. She belongs to Retail Supervisor, Kayla Hays. Rudi is a Golden Retriever who is very loyal. A couple of years ago Software Developer, Brian Liedtke had a medical emergency and Rudi tried to revive him. Rudi stayed by his side the whole time.

Charlie belongs to Email Specialist, Melanie Pace.
